    Thanks for sharing this! I love that little mini documentary that was on here- I learned the founders of Edmodo were school districtIT guys whose job it was to block sites for their school districts! At night in the basement, they came up with a way to have a secure social learning site so teachers and students didn't have to surrender how they learned at the schoolhouse doors.
