I highly recommend using Edmodo! It is user-friendly, safe, and pertinent to today's changing technological landscape. Edmodo brings classes together with others for deeper learning opportunities and is a huge time-saver!
How I Use It
Edmodo connects the physical classroom with the digital world. There is a little more set-up time, but it is worth it in the end since you can reuse information from class to class and from year to year.
