How I Use It
I use Edmodo with my middle school students in the computer lab. I post assignments for all work and students are able to turn in their digital projects to me on Edmodo. The site allows students to use the backpack to take work home to finish. Students can ask questions about the assigned work and receive a prompt answer from another student or from me.
Edmodo has so many different aspects to it that enhance learning for students. It can be set up so that it is private to your classroom group. Parents can be given a code to access all their student's posts and assignments. Teachers and students can have discussions about classroom assignments. Assignments can be posted online so that students and parents are always aware of deadlines. Edmodo also provides a space for teachers to place videos or other resources for flipping the classroom. The backpack area allows students to take home work to finish without the need of a flash drive. Students can earn badges as they complete assignments or gain achievements.
