"Giving students the right tools and opportunities to process their thinking, ask questions, brainstorm ideas, and present their work are all part of the learning process in an interactive classroom. Here are some tips and related tools to get you started."

"eduClipper, the social bookmarking service that I said teachers want Pinterest to be, can now be added to your Edmodo account and those of your students. The new eduClipper app for Edmodo lets you install eduClipper for all your students with the click of a button. Students can create content and share it with their peers and you."One of the things that makes eduClipper an excellent social bookmarking tool for students and teachers is the number of controls that teachers have over their students' accounts. Teachers can specify who students can share with and specify who can read their students bookmarks. These excellent settings are still in place in the eduClipper for Edmodo app."
Adding educlipper to edmodo makes it an even more powerful tool. Content can be shared more easily.
20 Ways to Use Edmodo...
Are learning management systems going the way of the Web 2.0 tools? I often opt for the philosophy of 'small tools loosely joined' when I work with students. I have to be careful that I don't give them too many digital places to go, too many usernames and passwords, too many learning curves. After all it is not the tools that are primar, but the affordances they offer and the adjacent and unexpected possibles that open up as they use these tools to research, write and share.
So that's the long way around the barn to say: perhaps Edmodo is a useful tool still because it does so much. It reminds me of Diigo. Perhaps as teachers who use tech in our teaching we should measure the cognitive weight of the tools we ask our students to use with an eye toward getting good 'weight'.

Edmodo provides a simple to set-up, easy to use virtual learning environment which is especially suited to smaller groups. It's a hosted service (unlike Moodle) and works quite well on mobile devices. If you're thinking of offering a blended learning package to your learners then it's a good place to start.
I found that edmodo was particularly useful, as student easily identified with the platform.
