Dear Teacher/Love Teacher

Dear Teacher,

A new week approaches.  A new performance.  A new show.  A new presentation.

You do the research.  You make the plans.  You write the script.  You learn your part.  You practice, practice, practice (even if only in your mind).

You do your best to be ready for when the curtain opens.

You breathe through the Sunday night “butterflies” as the time to go “on” is only hours away.

And let some of the worries go.

Let them go?

Yes.

Go.

Why?

Because you know that as soon as you step in the door on Monday, your plans will already be changed.  You know that you can never really know what the week will throw at you.  You will have to monitor.  You will have to adjust.  And just when your adjustments are adjusted, you will have to…

1 INTRODUCTION

The world is changing . New and emerging technologies through the web are connecting to our children in ways never before possible. Through blogs , social networking sites , multimedia, and other Web 2.0 tools , your world is becoming more participatory and networked . Students spend more time in virtual immersive environments that encourage creative thinking and problem solving . They often participate in games and social media which routinely acquire and apply knowledge and collaborate with friends . Do we , as educators we are following and applying this change in our process of teaching and learning ? Within these connections and networks , the complexity of learning and teaching becomes more evident , and educators need to deepen their understanding of how networks and knowledge are available , expand and grow . Educators need to develop a teaching practice more effective global and evolve . A practice that continually focuses on maximizing student learning to keep you updated with knowledge about learning . A new culture emerges with teaching professionals , who will be away from a paradigm of isolation and closed doors . Educators have always learned through networks of colleagues who get ideas and with whom they share . Often these networks are small , largely determined by the physical location . More recently , with the availability of technology to make connections and expand learning , the physical limits of the past were erased and the possibilities of connecting and learning has expanded. Are these global connections that promote the development of strategic knowledge communities online , with educators at all levels , in all disciplines , moving toward a form of acting so totally connected and collaborative . Communities form a personal learning network consisting of connections that the educator is to extend the learning environments and spaces are created and how they colleagues or mentors in a mutual learning in a system where educators participating , with people and learn share with them. With communities , educators can connect around ideas for which they are passionate . Everyone can connect to different people , with the construction of a network of learning experiences geared to the individual. Form strategic communities of knowledge online is a complex process in which educators develop the ability to find reliable sources of safe, effective and ethical in this way. Anyway , the communities represent the creation of spaces and personal learning environments . Communities have the potential to profoundly impact learning both professionally and personally . Communities focus on the individual needs , interests , and learning conversations .
For the study of these communities , albeit in incipient complexity of the subject and there is little academic theoretical material on the subject at the moment, Edmodo was chosen to be the largest project in the world community of teachers , as well as Edmodo also allow the formation of various discussion groups and relationships with students in a controlled and logical way . Its purpose is to facilitate students to reach their full potential. With the casting of the main communities of Edmodo , it is expected to give an overview of the state of the art, some of the subjects that intrigue educators around the world .
Fundamentally , an introduction should contain four basic ideas to answer the following questions :
What to do? Ie , what will be themed ?
This article will list the main Edmodo communities , seeking to present the state of the art of the main issues .
Why Doing ? That is why this theme was chosen ?
Participation in online communities of knowledge is critical for faculty to stay connected to their peers wherever they are to get ideas and share experiences .
What are the expected contributions ?
This article listed the major communities chosen for about two hundred thousand teachers in the world : Language Arts , Mathematics , Computer Technology , Science , Social Studies , Creative Arts , Professional Development , Career and Technical Education , World Languages , University Preparation Health and Physical Education , Special Education . Expected to present the number of members of each , as well as some key aspects of what is being discussed .
How do? Ie , what is the trajectory developed for the construction of the work undertaken ?
Obviously to learn about a community of teachers on Edmodo must participate. The purpose of this article is to show that after connecting on Edmodo as a teacher , knowing how Edmodo works and establish relationships , the author of this article asked for and was accepted in the communities listed going to contribute the same . The process of setting up a profile 100 % complete, and the contacts made , is outside the scope provided article because the subject itself is intuitive to most teachers used the technology of web 2.0 . If we were to describe the features and benefits of Edmodo for teachers and students would have to dedicate another article to this subject only by the need for further study . Thus in general, must inform the introduction , in about five paragraphs:
Background to the topic or problem ;
Compensates connect to Edmodo ? What are the communities that I find most interesting ? What are the main issues I can expect to find in each one? Expected to assist the reader in addressing such questions .
trends :
The school in general is getting to bring in access to and dissemination of information . The vast majority of students have a cell phone , many with internet access and an ability to research and response never before imagined . Technology should contruibute , but the role of the teacher is essential , as this is more prepared for a job with technological content systematized school , the better.

Nature and importance of the topic ;
In order to be able to better explain the importance of the subject , translated to English and transcribe the action that the Department of Education of the United States is taking in order to empower teachers with Web 2.0 tools .

Justification of the choice of the theme ;
From the above , denotes that the subject is of fundamental importance and has the advantage of familiarizing the reader with Edmodo , a free platform that is still little known in Brazil , which has already been translated into Portuguese .
Relevance :
In the United States the month of October 2013 is being dedicated to the training of teachers in the various possibilities of web 2.0 . With webinars , seminars and publications , materials did not exist before , we can now take advantage of this in the constitution of this article . The state of the art in this area of knowledge changes too much pretension and would get exhausted this subject here . The need to update is continuous , however , the timing is very appropriate to call the reader’s attention to a subject of major importance : the strategic knowledge communities online .
Possible contributions expected ;
List the major communities of Edmodo .
Enumerate the number of followers in each community.
Present some topics of discussion currently underway in these communities .
Challenge the reader to know the Edmodo and be interested in some of their communities .

Objectives of the study ;
What will be presented in the article ;
We have the following communities Edmodo , Language Arts , Mathematics , Computer Technology , Science , Social Studies , Creative Arts , Professional Development , Career and Technical Education , World Languages , University Preparation , Health and Physical Education , Special Education , listing the amount of followers of each and some main topics addressed.

2 DEVELOPMENT OF SCIENTIFIC ARTICLE

Concepts covered:
The Edmodo in most of their communities , unlike other open web 2.0 , requires prior permission of the moderator for the admission of the subject in a given community . The moderator will seek to investigate the contribution that the subject will give the group. To avoid embarrassment in case of a negative subjects considered unattractive to the communities , are waiting for an approval by the moderator justifying why your interest in that community .
In the design of Connected Educators , there is a simple questionnaire which require the participation of teachers , when choosing between the predetermined key words that most fall into line as a response to the following questions :
How old is the teacher of conducting classroom ?
What are your specialty areas ?
With that knowledge the teacher can contribute ?
What are the areas of interest of the teacher ?
In Figure 1 , we find a diagram of the answers given by the author . The keywords you choose are included in the teacher’s profile in order to facilitate the research of others, with common themes or similar , so you can make contact by e – mail for a specific topic .
In Figure 2 , we can find a table where participants are listed .
In Figure 3 , you can see the indication of teachers according to areas of interest arranged in a graph Pin .
In Figure 4 , we can find the distribution of participants throughout the world map .

A diagram of the responses given by the author , for example, can be seen in Figure

The material in this article is primarily composed of research on the internet without proper pages and their communities . The literature found on the subject is rather scarce , due to the innovative nature of it and the short time of its existence , so only now be calling attention to papers by the academic community .

In most communities mentioned above , one seeks to answer or discuss a particular topic or theme , usually proposed by the group moderator . An indicator of the degree of interest is the number of participants that the group contains , since membership is free and voluntary . Comments are strong indications that the issue deserves attention and is considered by analysts in Internet traffic as a clear sign of the ability to influence other people . The ability to direct and indirect influence that an article can have on readers is the key element in this type of communication. An indicator of the degree of interest of participants is given in case there are comments .
Comments are indications that the issue was strong enough to get someone to write about and is seen as a clear sign of the impact on communication. Even Twitter, with the use of haschtags , now also in use in G+ and YouTube , with more specificity the direct subject matter .

” All together we are better than each alone! ” This is the motto of the participating communities that are expressed in general with enthusiasm by the use of Edmodo . The subject has access to secure information , tested and approved by the participating communities .

2.1 – Language Arts
Language Arts is the community with the largest number of participants .
The Edmodo accounts this month of October 2013 , the mark of over 12 million users between teachers and students .
If we consider an average of 40 students per teacher , we have 300 000 members of the platform Edmodo teachers . Of these , 230,000 have chosen to connect to the Community Language Arts , which corresponds to 77 % of the population of teachers . One must remember that the choice of the number of communities depends on each one , without limits , unless the interest in participating fundamentally theme in this community, which has the English language spoken , read and written in its various forms of expression , which characterizes be currently English language world .

2.2 Mathematics
Mathematics is an ancient art and its proper education requires many exercises constituting a great challenge worldwide . 67 % of teachers chose to participate in the mathematics community , this community placing second in the ranking. From ancient Babylon before man began to count, measure and quantify things . The ability to conduct advanced calculations with the appropriate instruments was and is fundamental to science and technology . Note in this community , mainly linked to the math games from the internet which is an intuitive means for their learning .

2.3 Computer Technology
63 % of teachers are connected to the community of Computer Technology . This area was the fastest growing in the last 10 years and today’s students , start earlier and earlier to integrate the computer world . Teachers are in search of resources that make your life easier and more flexible learning for their students . Obviously this community brings together not only experts , but also all interested in being connected to web 2.0 .

Science 2.4
The sciences of contemporary man did what he is today and it is natural that 62 % of the teachers registered on Edmodo , have opted in to join this community. Clever and creative ways to present the main findings , principles and laws , are the main drivers of this community .

2.5 Social Studies
The North American people is what else participates in volunteer activities in the world , according to the UN . The example of our Civil Defense , the United States , there is FEMA , an agency of the U.S. Federal Government , with the purpose of preparing , assisting and restore all that is affected by natural cataclysms , such as typhoons , hurricanes , earthquakes , nuclear attacks ( by law martial decreed by the President of the United States , including on issues of National Security ) , constituting a task force of thousands .
Contrary to what one might imagine , the Social Studies are important elements for the North Americans who today make up the majority of teachers in Edmodo , followed by Europe and Oceania . Thus , it is perfectly understandable that 56 % of teachers have connected to this community .

2.6 Creative Arts
Four out of ten teachers integrate this community . New ideas , new ways of expression and innovation define the issues of Creative Arts . The United States is the first country in the world in number of patents , according to the INPI ( National Institute of Industrial Property ) , which shows the keen interest in research and innovation exercised this community .

2.7 Professional Development , Career and Physical Education , University Preparation
Interestingly , communities, professional development , career and physical education as well as university preparation are in distinct communities , with 39 % , 34 % and 28 % , respectively , of participation. Apparently , these are equivalent or complementary communities represented by specific groups . As in Brazil there are several schools of thought on education , similarly, these communities represent a diversity in your unit. Obviously , many teachers are enrolled in several of these communities simultaneously.

2.8 World Languages such as Spanish , French , German , Portuguese and other
28 % of participants joined the Edmodo communities about world languages . This is normal , considering that North America ‘s main English language that is addressed in Language Arts .

2.9 Health and Physical Education
Just over 20 % of teachers are connected to this community . This is due to the fact that society of health professionals are a group apart, even in the case of Physical Education and Sports .

2:10 Special Education
Only 20 % of teachers chose to participate in the community on Special Education is therefore the smaller communities of Edmodo . Although inclusive education seeks knowledge about special education is necessary to consider the circumstances in each case . All teachers receive , or at least should receive adequate training to deal with situations involving special education .

Interestingly strategic knowledge communities online Edmodo , little or nothing has been said about problems bulling or indiscipline in the classroom . The main concern is always to motivate students and bring them news and challenges for learning.
We saw that in order of importance , the major communities are: Language Arts , Mathematics , Computer Technology , Science , Social Studies , Creative Arts , Professional Development , Career and Technical Education , World Languages , University Preparation , Health and Physical Education and Education special.
They are, in short , they linked to our primary, secondary and higher education, research, extension , graduate and socialization . Ie how to teach enthusiastically Language Fatherland , Mathematics , Science , Worldview antique and contemporary , for students who have access to this information from various sources. The answer to this challenge lies within each of us . The role of the educator connect , learn, use and teach the tools of web 2.0 , under penalty of being ignored by his students . The Edmodo has proved to be a good alternative technological tool .
