Social Networking Tools for the Classroom

Here’s an interesting short piece about Edmodo , the social networking website for use in schools. It works somewhat similar to Yammer which has been in use within our school for the last few months as an internal communication mechanism. However, what’s interesting about the article is that, like Facebook, the developers have opened up the opportunity for other companies to develop apps. This, as we have seen on tablet computers, smart phones and Facebook itself is likely to make it a very powerful tool.
