Edmodo is a website adopting social network dynamics for learning purposes, stimulating the discussion among students, starting from topics, exercises, homework assigned by teachers to their classrooms. Teachers can also join teachers community and get inspired from peers all over the world about future lessons contents. Students can upload texts, videos, documents and articles, but also help other students to overcome difficulties and problems related to the realisation of the topic posted or task assigned, helping teachers to save time. Parents can also connect to Edmodo and follow their children’s work and progress.
Edmodo is available for free.
