    http://www.edmodo.com Edmodo is an online resource and could be used in a classroom setting. It has been used in the classrooms across all subjects in all parts of the world. You can create your own group as a class. You can give assignments and tasks on line. Students can post photos, comments, video clips and share information with each other. You need to search Edmodo through google search and register first then create your groups/classes. It is safe because it has group code for only the people you select. You can delete unwanted members and edit their postings. You need to warn them about sending responsible and respectable material to the group/class space. It is also good to send a letter home informing parents of this group space to seek their support (shared by Joseph Sun).
