Edmodo:  The Culture Builder Principal Blog does not address specifically one project but demonstrates how Edmodo can be used by students to create groups in which they have an interest.  These groups allow students to share and discuss issues and are placed on the principal blog.  Since the groups are student generated with the approval of the principal, they have pride in ownership.  eDCSD: The Colorado Cyber School takes great pride in the fact that their students belong to such a collaborative community with Edmodo being the delivery tool of choice.
