AI Book Club Discussions Comments I think my middle school students would be very familiar with social networks (online and otherwise) and with food webs. I agree with Susan. Students know who is in their social network, family network (perhaps). They may have some exposure to the Internet as a network of systems, with a DNS server, routers. They may know from studying networks a LAN, star network, WAN. Log in To Post New Content in the Forum.
