    Not familiar with Schoology but the Edmodo list looks correct. I am a big fan of Edmodo which we started last year. Unfortunately, the population I work with has limited computer access at home so it was mainly used by about half of my students. I still plan on using it because it is one way to meet the needs of some of my learners.

      Thanks for sharing… I like both but it think in the end it depends of yours and your students’ needs
