Edmodo – an attractive social network for teachers and students.

Edmodo is an attractive tool I got to know during a Chris Fry’s workshop which took place a month ago in the Annual British Council Conference in Barcelona .

Edmodo is a social network addressed exclusively to teachers and students. It looks pretty much like facebook both in its appearance and its use, but with the advantage that it allows you to set up groups in a secure and closed environment.

You can easily set up groups to manage your class, connect with other educators or engage in teacher professional development communities. It also offers the chance to share and store  documents in a clouded-based environment. If you have the time it is worth taking a look at this promo video and discover some of the communication and teaching possibilities it offers.
