Edmodo has announced it is now offering educators new ways to share expertise and showcase their professional experiences through its new teacher profiles. The teacher profiles provide educators with a permanent space to connect with peers and the larger education community.
Educators can now add unique features to their Edmodo profiles, including their school and educational experience, teaching philosophy, interests and favorite content or resources. In addition, educators are able to create a personal URL that will allow them to easily share their profile publicly with peers.
As educators are looking to connect with each other through Edmodo Communities and other online channels, teacher profiles will allow them to create their own branded page and share relevant information about themselves. In addition, connecting offline at education conferences and other professional events will be easier through Edmodo's mobile website and updated iPhone and Android apps. The apps now include built-in Bump functionality, allowing teachers to instantly connect through bumping their mobile devices.
