The 2 Hottest Educational Social Networks You’re Not Yet Using

The 2 Hottest Educational Social Networks You’re Not Yet Using | 21st Century Tools for Teaching-People and Learners | Scoop.it

The overarching theme now of Learnist and Lore (aside from the first letter of the names) is that these sites are designed to function just like the most popular social networks in the world … except they were built just for teachers and students. To me, that says that it’s a very exciting time in edtech as companies are able to finally leverage the resources and data from the Facebooks and Blackboards of the world … then turning this into a very useful new tool that can be completely tailored to the education audience.

 

No longer will teachers, students, and administrators hope to fit their square peg (education needs) into a round hole (whatever Facebook offers). We can all now look forward to more and more dedicated tools that are robust enough to perhaps completely replace Facebook or other major social networks.

Stay tuned.
