New social networking platform for teachers mixes Google Docs, Ning, Twitter, and Facebook.
Writing resources and stuff. Because good writing always matters.
My vote goes to Dead Poets Society.
A very interesting pedagogical approach about the movie “The King’s Speech” with Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush. Sorry but this article was written in greek. :)
Edudemic’s post explains this well, but Diipo.com is a new social networking site made for classrooms. Based on Edudemic’s explanation and briefly visiting Diipo’s site, it looks like Edmodo and Ning had a child and called it Diipo. It the same capabilities I love about Edmodo, but adds onto it with blogging capabilities. It looks like (based on images from this post) Diipo also has capabilities of having different tabs for your classroom, which is something I would have liked to see on Edmodo (for example, if I posted an assignment, it could easily get drowned out by newer student posts and then be difficult to find).
The one thing I couldn’t find by quickly browsing is if students can only privately message the teacher or if they could also privately message one another. Edmodo did not allow students to interact with one another privately, which makes it easier for teachers to monitor what’s going on. I would be wary of Diipo if it allows student to student messages.
Otherwise, I definitely plan on giving this more thought in the future.
Interesting stuff. We are totally gonna check this out and tell you more about it…
