Those who follow this blog know that I am seriously intrigued by Twitter, and have frequently written about its academic uses.

Enter Edmodo, Twitter for educators. Edmodo is a private microblogging service. I generally think one of the values of twitter is its public nature, being able to connect to people beyond your usual milieu. That having been said I can see the use in having a private channel particularly for public K-12 education where “internet-fear” constricts the use of public platforms.
