I'm in a pretty low-tech district and I am trying to do what i need to
for my students who are the 7-8 graders at a K-8. We have the hardware but no innovation to go with it. My current plan is
to pitch to school (not district) admin that we try something like gaggle for our small (120 or so) junior high population next year. I want them to have email addresses to turn in assignments to us, and also so they can create accounts on edublogs, etc. I'm also very interested in using edmodo, and I've started a pbwiki for our junior high web page (our school doesn't have a web page, just district).
Is there anything that would serve as a virtual learning environment like edmodo that would also integrate student email and possibly file storage? I'm open to any suggestions.
