We have a few teachers using Edmodo at Essex High School, I think they find it a bit more 'student friendly' as to the look and use of it compared to Moodle. But as we have a dedicated Moodle server, and many teachers using it with students, it seems like just another place students need to go. I also worry about building a course on there, with lots of resources etc, and then all of the sudden having Edmodo start charging or go away etc. I haven't played with Edmodo enough really, but at the HS level I'm fine having students use something like Moodle which might not be pretty, but it certainly does a good job of getting them ready for using an online course management system like most colleges are using....

I have a 4th grade class using Edmodo as well, mostly as an introductory class blog (practicing post, response & how to make good comments). We will be moving them into our WordPress environment in the coming weeks: they have quickly outgrown Edmodo because it is one long conversation and difficult to "find" individuals.

I continue to be impressed with the flexibility of the WordPress Multiblog/Buddypress environment, and am happy to share with anyone interested in a solid blog platform!

One of our fourth grade teachers is using it right now for a communication with a class in Canada.  She has used Moodle in the past, so I'll see what she thinks of it and let you know.

Looking for any schools that use Edmodo?

Thoughts on how does it supplement or replace any of the following
Google Apps?
portfolio systems?
email systems?
anything else?
