With the rapid growth of social networking sites influencing education, policy makers and educators face numerous challenges in order to meet the growing demands and expectations of the learners. Our learners are born and brought up with technology and they expect the same life style in their education system. As educators, we must recognize the potential for ameliorating student engagement inside and outside the classroom using these technologies. Facebook has been used as a tool in education throughout the world. With many of its advantages in the daily life of our students, there are many risks involved in it. Edmodo, on the other hand, is purely a personal learning network (PLN) developed by educators with education in mind. It has a similar interface to Facebook and is free of charge, it is easy to create the account or a classroom, and has simple functionality. It is very safe since an educator can limit who may join the group; i.e. students are invited explicitly. This professional development workshop explores the numerous ways in which Edmodo can be an ideal tool for meeting the ever-growing challenges to support student motivation and participation inside and outside the classroom. It is a short result-based training course adapted to meet the needs of 21st century teachers who wish to acquire new skills or enhance their competencies in real-time situation.
