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!
Pinterest allows users to create Boards that are organized by any topic. On each board, are pins. A pin starts with an image or video you add to Pinterest. The pins on Pinterest all link back to their source. It's a great way to organize ideas and resources around a topic. Use it to introduce them to the world of Discovery. Pin trading cards to introduce the community folks, pin blog posts of interest, pin links to Discovery-related websites, pin news of events. Make sure to share the board with teachers.
