How I Use It
I have used this site for whole class assignments, polling to begin a lesson/unit, small group book studies, homework submission, parent communication, and so much more. It is quickly replacing my school website as my "go to" spot. I really should just put a link on the school website pointing to my Edmodo account.
My Take
Edmodo creates an environment that allows the teacher to send content to the whole class, small groups, and individuals. Students learn online communication etiquette, while engaged in meaningful work, dialog, and discussion. I love the polling feature, assignments, and parental involvement. In addition, I use many of the apps to promote classroom management, practice of skills, and for notifications.
