Join the Common Core Conversation!

What if you could find a learning management system that would allow you to take polls, post assignments and links, create online quizzes, and upload files for free?  Better yet, what if you could find an online resource that would actively engage students to become independent, lifelong learners?  Edmodo is that site!  Edmodo is a secure worldwide learning environment where teachers and students can collaborative and learn from each other. 

Almost 800 educators are connected in a nationwide Edmodo group, the "Common Core Conversation," to discuss what their schools, districts, and states are doing to address the new Common Core Standards in the k-12 classrooms. 

Help us reach 1,000 innovative educators.  Join the Common Core Conversation at  The group code is gy48aa.
