One of my students introduced me to this App. It took a little time to set up as a teacher and a class, but it was worth it. I had been using Moodle, but my class and myself found Edmodo to be much more user friendly and FUN! It looks a lot like Facebook. It is a social network that is safe for students to use. I created "classes" for each subject as well as a "Chat" page. In Edmodo, assignments can be created, completed, graded and returned with just a few clicks of the button! It's use is endless. I did allow my kids to "Chat" on the chat page, but not during class. They used this page instead of other social networks, since parents felt it was safer. (As a teacher I received an email every time something was posted, so I could monitor the chats.)
