Edmodo is a microblogging site designed with education in mind. Teachers create a free account and can set up an online environment, which allows creation of groups, sharing of links and files, and an area for conversations but not private chats. Gradebook and drop boxes are also included. If you want to stay connected to your students at all times, Edomodo has a mobile phone application as well. Edmodo is like taking Twitter and Facebook and tweaking them to be used in the educational setting.
