Everywhere students go they are connected to technology — instead of expecting students to ‘power down’ when they come to school, forward-thinking school districts are finding new ways to ‘power up’ the curriculum.

In this video, Dyane Smokorowski explains how educators throughout Andover school district in Kansas are using Edmodo to engage students in academic social networking and project based learning.   A great example of 21st century learning.

And with that — the Edmodo team would like to wish our educators in the U.S. a happy holiday and take this time to give thanks to every one of our educators around the world for the work you do every day to improve the lives of children. You are our heroes and we are honored to be part of your community.

Happy Thanksgiving!

    I recently started using Edmodo and my students response was that it is like Facebook. The students that are computer savvy really took it really fast. They posted various writing samples with pictures. Some did powerpoints, while others did clip art. Now, I am waiting on those students excited to do a Prezi. I just wish that with the Skype and being able to connect with other class room that I had more than three computers in my classroom. Maybe I could write a grant…any ideas?

    As an ELA teacher, I am always looking for ways to motivate and to help inspire my students. e-Pals learning Space (Global Communities ) is another innovative tool to use for students to become acquainted with students worldwide.
