VocabularySpellingCity Supports Edmodo’s Social Collaboration Platform
Fort Lauderdale, FL. March 6, 2012 - VocabularySpellingCity is proud to announce our support for Edmodo’s social collaboration platform and app store.
“Edmodo and VocabularySpellingCity share a belief that teachers should learn from each other and work with their students using modern technology and methods. Edmodo is the most popular implementation of social media technology focused on K12 education,” said John Edelson, the Founder and Mayor of VocabularySpellingCity. “Edmodo has adapted a popular social network paradigm to support teachers' and students' interactions in a productive learning community. We’re pleased to participate as they move forward into improving how teachers procure access to software resources with an app store that gives teachers direct control of acquiring the software resources that they need.”
“Edmodo is thrilled to welcome VocabSpellingCity as a featured partner in the Edmodo Store,” said Nic Borg, CEO and co-founder of Edmodo. “As an established publisher in the education community we believe their innovative applications will be a great addition to the Edmodo platform and classrooms across the globe.”
Word of mouth among teachers has lead to phenomenal growth for both Edmodo and VocabularySpellingCity over the last few years.
