Edmodo is a social learning network and secure microblogging platform where teachers and students can interact and collaborate online. It has an interface similar to Facebook, however it is much more secure since it is a closed network. Both teachers and students can share notes, links, files and resources with each other. In addition to this, teachers have the ability to post alerts, assignments, grades, reminders, conduct a poll and share events. Students have the ability to participate in online discussions on the message board, submit homework, view grades, and communicate with their teacher. Also, transmission is fast, and it saves paper (Jeff O’Hara – See more here). To hear more stories about using Edmodo in classrooms from all over the world, please register for EdmodoCon 2013 today. It is never too late to participate and share tweets using #edmodocon. Sessions are running now. Enjoy your time! If you can’t attend this conference, all the sessions are recorded and will be uploaded to the website soon.
