The Global Search for Education: Online Educational Tools

Vibhu Mittal and Michael Horn join C. M. Rubin in The Global Search for Education.

Based in San Mateo, California, Edmodo is the number one K-12 social learning network in the world. The goal of the Edmodo platform is to engage learners with knowledgable peers and impactful content, and it is estimated that 50 million educators in 190 countries are currently doing just that.

"Edmodo has been fortunate in having some of the best teachers already on the platform. These teachers have shared millions of pieces of content," explains Edmodo's CEO Vibhu Mittal. "Resources shared range from a short pointer with immediate applicability to long, thoughtful analyses of interesting questions and possible solutions that might take a teacher days or weeks to think through and write," he adds.

What are the issues and scenarios to consider in the future? Vibhu Mittal and Michael Horn, co-founder and executive director of education at the Clayton Christensen Institute, join me today in The Global Search for Education to talk about learning in a world driven by innovative online educational tools.
