SAN MATEO, Calif., Nov. 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Edmodo, the world’s leading global education network, today announced a new partnership with Clever to give millions of teachers, students and parents immediate access to fully rostered digital classrooms.
Edmodo and Clever are two of the world’s leaders in bringing technology into the classroom, enabling teachers to spend less time on administrative tasks and more time teaching. With over 86 million members sharing more than 600 million resources across 400,000 schools, Edmodo has long been recognized by educators globally as a powerful platform to customize their classrooms and collaborate in a safe and secure network. Clever, with half of U.S. K-12 schools and over 1.1 million daily student users, is the most widely-used single sign-on and rostering platform in education today.
Together, these leaders are making it easier than ever for teachers to access Edmodo’s many resources, save time planning lessons, and help students master concepts even faster.
Jodie Johnston, Curriculum Technology Specialist at Blue Valley School District, was able to automatically roster Edmodo classes for her entire district using the integration between Clever and Edmodo. "Using the Clever sync with Edmodo this year was such a timesaver! It saved me hours of work during back to school, and having students automatically show up in the right classes that enrolled after school started was amazing!"
“Classrooms have never been and never will be one-size-fits-all models,” says Edmodo CEO Vibhu Mittal. “Both Edmodo and Clever are in the business of giving teachers access to the best technology to maximize learning. With Clever, a district can provide all their teachers pre-rostered classrooms in Edmodo. Teachers can then instantly use Edmodo to discover the best resources—whether that’s from their Google Drive or a fellow teacher in their Edmodo network—and deliver those resources to their classes in a differentiated, social, highly engaging way.”
Tyler Bosmeny, CEO of Clever, echoed these sentiments by stating, “We are thrilled to provide single sign-on and automatic rostering to the millions of students and teachers that use Edmodo every day.” Tyler continued, “This partnership makes it even easier to engage with the social learning tools that Edmodo has pioneered in the classroom.”

Clever was founded in 2012 by educators and technologists who knew that widely available educational apps could improve both teaching and learning, but that tools to deploy and secure the applications were simply unavailable. Today, half of K-12 schools in the U.S. trust Clever to secure their student data as they adopt learning apps in the classroom. In 2014, Clever won the ‘Crystal Clear’ award by the Digital Innovation Learning Awards. It is also the trusted provider of the American Federation of Teachers, who uses Clever to secure its own ‘Share my Lesson’ platform with its teacher members. Backed by Sequoia Capital, Lightspeed Partners, Peter Thiel’s Founders Fund, and GSV Capital, Clever currently has 100 employees and is based in San Francisco, California.
