PODIO in education

Does anybody of you use PODIO to organize learning? I am gathering some teacher friends in a workspace and would love to see you in that, too. Don't hesitate to contact me.

Hello, Gerd. I teach English literature and composition in a high school in California. I discovered Podio early in the spring semester and have become OBSESSED with it (as my students will affirm). I believe Podio's potential for education is vast and intend to use it in every part of my instruction, planning, assessment,  classroom management, and communication next year. I'd love to share ideas and experiences with other educators.

By the way, when I say I am obsessed, I mean that I have designed apps IN MY DREAMS, awoken, gotten out of bed in the middle of the night, created the apps, and gone back to bed. (Should I be worried? Gustav, do other users have this experience?)

@Joseph, I know exactly what you mean about dreaming in apps!

Joseph: I think you can ask anyone in the Podio team and they'll tell you that they've dreamt about Podio at some point :D 

Your case is one of the more extreme things I've heard, but I wouldn't worry. If you overdose on Podio though, I'd be happy to talk you through it ;)

In my dreams I see bored students jumping off their classrooms and simply doing what they want - everyday. One of my big goals is to write the "how to become a pilot"-app one day.

Thank you, Gustav and Sara, for your comforting reassurance. I have always suspected that someday I would lose my mind, but at least I know that if I am smitten with insanity because of Podio, I will be in good company! Gerd, I would love to join your workspace AND to see that app for learning to be a pilot, Perhaps I shall one day learn to fly . . . .

Hi Joseph. I'm a first year public school educator that has used Podio to design a workflow for my wife's design business and now would like to put something together to help organize, manage, and facilitate learning in my Computer Systems Technology course . I would love to see how you are using it in your classroom.
