Edmodo has been described as both a social learning network and a learning management system. But, where teachers find the biggest value is in how it can be used to develop a sense of community in the classroom where all students have a voice and can learn with and from each other.

    Project Based Learning (PBL) is such a great way to give students the opportunity to apply what they're learning in the classroom to real world situations. Through the use of Edmodo, this teacher developed a PBL experience that was shared with another classroom in Australia.

    One of the things I like best about Edmodo is the ability to collaborate with other classrooms through the use of focused groups. Those collaborations can help to develop many 21st century learning skills. This teacher from Alaska describes how she got started in a global collaboration project through the use of Edmodo.
