—This paper examines the use of social learning
platforms in conjunction with the emergent pedagogy of the
„flipped classroom‟. In particular the attributes of the social
learning platform “Edmodo” is considered alongside the
changes in the way in which online learning environments are
being implemented, especially within British education. Some
observations are made regarding the use and usefulness of
these platforms along with a consideration of the increasingly
decentralized nature of education in the United Kingdom.
