The lack of updates here has been partly been my lack of anything interesting to say and partly because I have been working to get http://edmodo.com off the ground. We have also just launched a blog at http://blog.edmodo.com. Content is sparse at this time, but will be getting more content up shortly discussing technology, social networking, & new media in regards to education. We don’t want the blog to just be about marketing the Edmodo product.
Edmodo is the brain child of Nic Borg (my partner) and I and we envision this company to be the premier provider of free web 2.0 tools (boy I hate that name) for Teachers, Students, Parents, and Schools. We have a vision of a multitude of tools that we would provide, but are currently concentrating on a social communication/notification site. I won’t get into specifics right now about the details as we are currently building the product and features may change or be added before we launch.
Nic & I both work for K-12 school districts in technology departments and were frustrated at the the overpriced and frankly not very good offerings of most of the Eduction Technology services that were being marketed and subscribed to by our school districts. We feel that the both of us have the background to make a decent product and make the lives of the education community better through the technology we build.
