Social media is changing the way teachers communicate with their students, colleagues, and parents. Below are links to our favorite social media sites for teachers.
Edmodo is a favorite social media site, specially designed for teachers and their students. Teachers can use this platform to share assignments with students and parents. They can also give quizzes, offer help to students who need it, and communicate with colleagues.
Google Classroom has taken K-12 schools by storm. It's a power collaboration tool, and an easy way to communicate with students and track their progress. It's fully integrated with Google Docs. You'll need to be a school to sign up, and most schools that I know if are already onboard.
