How I Use It
I have used Edmodo for the following -discussion forums -small group remediation -curation of class materials and resources -posting of HW and other assignments -make up work -blended classroom through videos posted on Edmodo -connecting with other teachers and expanding my PLN -connecting with parents regarding due dates, etcetera -using the calendar feature with students and colleagues to share important dates You can use it for all sorts of things! I do admit, it is not set up for easy group discussions, but I would simply take ll if my students and put them in a 'small group' for our discussion prompts. That way, the discussion does not clutter your(or your students) Edmodo feed.
My Take
Edmodo transformed my classroom! Through Edmodo, I was able to build classroom community, encourage accountability, and extend the learning outside of my classroom. The iPad app is great for 1:1 schools. It gives students a free way to turn in assignments, take quizzes, respond to teacher feedback, etcetera. I love it and try to share the many uses for Edmodo with the rest of my faculty!
