How I Use It
I share files (pdf, audio, video, etc.) on Edmodo for students to use in their learning. The most powerful step that I took with my students this year was to record assignments (on PC - Accessories - Sound Recorder), convert to mp3, and then post. I did this for question and answer choices on assignments (for those that struggled with reading) as well as spelling test (now students were self-paced). I'll do more to differentiate this year by using EdCanvas to build differentiated lessons.
My Take
Edmodo is a secure classroom management system that allowed me to quickly take my students much further. Another benefit is the vast reduction in paper I used in my classroom. My students would often beg for me to post learning content on our Edmodo site so they could share it at home.
