I began transforming my curriculum during the summer of 2012 (well, actually modifying my district’s core curriculum, which was their precursor to the newly mandated national Common Core State Standards). Every summer, in addition to using the time off from teaching to spend more quality time with my family and friends, as always part of “recharging my batteries” also involved reflecting on the past year’s successes and challenges. My first stop in seeking out discussions and resources on new topics in education was my favorite Professional Learning Network – Edmodo.
I often find myself spending more time perusing the Edmodo publisher communities and professional group wall posts than Facebook. Mainly because the content on Edmodo is much more influential, insightful and thought-provoking than anything posted on other social networking sites. I could go on and on about my love for Edmodo and the amazing professionals I’ve connected with and have learned from all over the world, but instead I’ll suggest you join Edmodo as an educator yourself and discover the amazing platform first hand at http://www.edmodo.com
