My students' facebook for schools!

I am using Edmodo with my virtual high school students to stay in touch, chat about their courses. They are submitting work to me for independent courses that they are taking over the internet. Also, they are using the phone notification which can easily be set up in their settings. This way anytime a new assignment or alert is posted they are notified by a text in their phones. Sound new maintenance for me, but I hope it will pay off.

Also, it is a great way to stay in touch with club members.
