A fantastic collaboration tool for students to ease into social media connectivity.
Community Review for Edmodo
Edmodo is a website and application that allows the teacher to extend classroom learning of content beyond the classroom. Students will be engaged by opportunities to share their learning and input that vary from the norm. My favorite capability encompasses a student's ability to take ownership of one's learning by checking grades online, looking at an agenda for upcoming assignments, and inputting upcoming important dates on an online agenda, amongst others.
How I Use It
I use Edmodo to assess students understanding and to provide an outlet for the shared knowledge of students. I hope to better create a domain for student's to communicate project based learning concepts and navigate resources to teach each other. This year I plan to assign specific login information, primarily due to student's not remembering login information last year. I allowed them to choose meaningful logins that were memorable, but this strategy was unsuccessful. However ,I will implement the usage of Edmodo in a similar way.
