  6. 6. Edmodo, a safe platform where teachers and students can collaborate, share content, and leverage educational apps to augment in- classroom learning Edmodo is interesting because of the way it has molded social into a shape that suits education at the K-12 level: as a free service that's teacher-friendly and easy for school districts to adopt, typically after they find out their teachers are already using it. Using Edmodo, teachers invite students into private groups that can be used for online classroom discussions, but in a format that keeps the teacher firmly in control.

Edmodo has been bringing the power of the web and mobile to students and has become the largest social learning network in the world for K12 education. Founders4Schools has brought the power of linkedin to teachers so their students can explore businesses within 5 miles of the school’s location and invite them to speak to students or help the students get work placements….
