DISCORD AGE WARNING: Please note that like all social networks, Discord limits its users to age 13 and up, so there's an expectation that younger children who are logging in to this service will be monitored by parents to confirm that they're using it appropriately. We believe the circumstances of this emergency necessitate experimentation and new approaches to communication, and after trying many solutions, we were impressed by Discord's powerful tools for text, voice chat and screen sharing, all of which make it an ideal educational tool -- with proper supervision.
