Edmodo: A Great Tool for School Librarians
Holzweiss, Kristina
School Library Monthly, v29 n5 p14-16 Feb 2013
School librarians are in a profession where it is easy to be isolated. Often, school districts have only one certified librarian and school librarians must create ways to connect with one another and with other educators. Social media opportunities such as Facebook, LinkedIn, blogs, wikis, and nings are powerful ways of staying connected on a professional level. Another choice is Edmodo (http://www.edmodo.com), a powerful, multi-faceted, cyber-safe social network. Librarians can use Edmodo not only to connect with each other, but also as a way to extend their classroom beyond the book stacks. The author describes her first experience with Edmodo, library integration, how it contributes to professional development, and the features it includes.
