  • A Social Education

    July 27th, 2010 by Mike Bryant

    Look! Up on your screen! It’s Facebook. It’s Twitter. It’s IM. Nope, it’s Edmodo. The look in feel of the before mentioned three, Edmodo was built from the ground up as a social platform for educators and students.

    I only really used Edmodo extensively last week while with a group of educators as part of Discovery’s Summer Institute. If you use Facebook for status updates, you’ll feel right at home with Edmodo. The look and feel is almost exactly like Facebook, except you just won’t see updates for that guy you haven’t seen since the third grade. A controlled and closed environment, Edmodo allows students to collaborate and communicate safely in manner they are used to. You as a teacher can provide connections, in the form of groups, to other classrooms across the hall or on the other side of the globe.

    I did a quick screencast below, highlighting some of the features.

    Saving the best for last, Edmodo has a lovely price-tag, it’s FREE.
