Today my students began blogging using Edmodo. My son has used this all year in middle school and really seemed to enjoy it. So, I decided to check it out from a teacher's point-of-view. It was super easy to set up! When I finished setting up my teacher account I created a group titled, "5th grade" and was able to assign a project. What's really cool is the ease of differentiation. You, as a teacher, can create as many groups as needed and assign each group a different project/assignment!
