At Edmodo and The Global Search for Education, we’re passionate about helping our global network of educators engage and support the increasingly diverse student populations present in their classrooms. From our discussions with global thought leaders to our teacher groups to subject area communities, we see that teachers are sharing innovative ways to foster global consciousness in their students.
The weekly Global Search for Education articles that run on the Edmodo blog supplement these discussions through global reporting on education’s current hot topics and interviews with influencers in the field.
Now it’s time to expand and take these critical conversations to Twitter and beyond!
