edmodo-conferenceOn August 4, educators from around the globe will join the online educational conference, EdmodoCon, for a full day of professional development and learning.

In its fifth year, EdmodoCon intends to help teachers navigate the digital learning environment and introduces them to new ideas and tools to improve student learning. Last year, more than 44,000 educators from 172 countries registered to virtually attend.

This year, Edmodo welcomes Michael Horn, co-founder and executive director of education at the Clayton Christensen Institute, as the closing keynote, during which he’ll discuss how educators can design blended learning environments and harness its benefits—personalization, access, and equity at scale—to unleash student achievement.
