  1. Edmodo is a great program that we use in our school to educate children in grades 3-6 about Social Networking. It is private and safe. Teachers create groups that students join with a special user code. All activity is monitored by teachers who can moderate, edit and delete inappropriate content. It’s a fantastic tool!
