Welcome to the first Web 2.0 Wednesday post. If you have any web 2.0 tools that you would like me to highlight just leave a comment. Since the DEN is about sharing resources, If you’ve used the featured tool, please leave a comment on how you used it.
We have just launched Edmodo and invite you to come sign up.
What is Edmodo?
Edmodo is a private microblogging platform that teachers and students can use to send notes, links, files, alerts, assignments, and events to each other. Teachers also have the ability to mark any post from their classes as public to share with the outside world. You can also create private groups for you and your colleagues to collaborate. It’s free & simple to use!
Your thoughts and comments are always welcome and encouraged. You can reach us by posting in the public “edmodo” group within Edmodo or by e-mailing us. All teachers are automatically signed up for a “support” group to post any problems you may have with
