Edmodo is, at its core, a stripped down version of Facebook for educators to better engage with their students. It offers to educators the same functionality that they’re familiar with and it offers to students an extremely friendly user experience. There are security measures in place to keep content private and it’s even possible to engage parents if that’s ever deemed important. In short, it’s a platform I’m very excited about employing own my own practice.
I’ve made a Weebly site that breaks down and talks up the site in great detail. Have a look!
