Social networks are a growing part of our daily lives. These powerful and diverse online communities also have the potential to be robust learning platforms. The challenge many educators face is how to incorporate and maximize social learning networks to serve them in the classroom and in their professional lives.

In Let’s GetSocial, authors Ginger Carlson and Raphael Raphael show you how easy — and fun! — social learning can be. Using the popular educational social network Edmodo, they demonstrate the many ways to use this powerful tool to enhance instruction, share knowledge, and create an extended network of colleagues. You’ll get immediately adaptable strategies for incorporating Edmodo’s suite of tools and apps for:

  • Flipping your classroom
  • Gamification and “leveling up”
  • Differentiating instruction
  • Polling, surveying and getting instant feedback
  • Creating professional learning networks
