After taking a look at both of these resources, I find that both Schoolbinder and Edmodo could be quite helpful in the classroom. Although, coming from a dance perspective, I am somewhat hesitant to say I would use either regularly. But having spent my first semester getting familiar with Blackboard, I could see myself using the tools on schoolbinder and edmodo that are similar. I would be interested to see if the dance ed students on the k-12 track would find these tools useful. (I realize this is a k-12 course but I needed an intro into all of these tech-y things!) As teachers, we must always be mindful of any costs and also of authenticity/privacy so those are concerns to keep in mind when using any resources similar to these.
I could also be very hesitant to use these resources due to the nature of a dance class and the expectations of the dance student. They are not expecting homework assignments let alone discussion boards, etc.! I am enjoying the process of our current dance classes now which are all utilizing Blackboard so maybe I will have some success in introducing these new ideas into the traditional dance classroom!
