Every year, I have used Edmodo groups for teachers to share ideas, make connections, and post any random questions they may have pertaining to the book they are doing for the Global Read Aloud. Edmodo has worked well for many teachers as a way to communicate with others and to find inspiration. While you do not have to join the Edmodo group to be a part of Global Read Aloud, or use it with your students, many have found it as an easy way to be connected and to connect with others.

I personally use Edmodo as a way to find people to connect with, it is a lot more manageable than sending out tweets. Let me know if you have any questions.
