If you read this blog you may already know just how much I love using Edmodo in my classroom. Well on Thursday morning at 10.00 am (Sydney time). Or Wednesday evening in the USA. I will be part of the first ever EdmodoCon, a day long edmodo conference, for educators from around the world.
For details of all the other presenters check out this edmodo blog.
The Aussie contingent happen to all live within five kilometres of each other, how weird is that! So we have been meeting over the past two weeks at a local McDonalds to plan our presentations. Thanks for the free wi-fi Maccas!
