SNN - Student News Net Thank you for visiting SNN. For 10 years, the same team of professionals has been producing SNN with a sharp focus on original, interesting content as both a mediator and motivator for learning. SNN has spent years studying the challenge of providing meaningful integration of technology in the classroom, conducting educational research, and working closely with teachers.
