  1. Edmodo.com is a great web site, service and app. We’ve used it at our school before using iPads on a 1:1 basis. Edmodo is like Facebook for schools except that it’s free, private and free. Posting of assignments, links, audio and video clips is easy. And the new Quizzes feature is a real-life time saver! Say goodbye to Moodle and Blackboard!
