DEN March Madness – Entry #1 – Edmodo

College basketball is heating up with March Madness only a few weeks away.  For the DEN, March Madness is already here!

Here’s the first team! Edmodo

Marion Jacob nominates Edmodo.  Here is Marion’s description of how she feels about Edmodo and how she uses in with her students.

Edmodo is an educational social networking platform that allows me and my students to connect and collaborate anytime, anyplace, and anywhere. Edmodo and Discovery Education are great educational partners. I’m able to post Discovery Education materials onto Edmodo to differentiate instruction for my students based upon their individual academic needs as well as their personal learning passions. I’m also able to flip my science class using Edmodo and Discovery Education videos. I can post videos and assessments from Discovery to my Edmodo page for student to link to. There is also a fabulous Discovery Education support group that teachers can join on Edmodo. The Discovery staff and fellow teachers answer questions, provide support, and share ideas on how to incorporate Discovery Education into your curriculum area. I’d be lost without both. Edmodo and Discovery Education were a match made in the cloud!

While you’re checking out Edmodo, be sure to connect with us there.

There you go – the first of 16 tools for our March Madness challenge.  What are you going to nominate?

We would love you, a valuable member of the DEN Community, to help us create the brackets for this year’s challenge.  What 16 tools should be included in this year’s March Madness bracket.  What are some of the tools you use with Discovery Education content?  What do you use to create, share, teach, curate, mashup, and learn with?
