How I Use It
I used it to allow students to collaborate in several ways. They could respond to posts, have online discussions about a topic, to take quizzes and tests which were graded online. Every student had an account because we are a one-to-one Chromebook school. I also post homework assignments and notes on it. We use it schoolwide.
My Take
Edmodo may be the best free app for online collaboration and engagement on the market. It has a social media feel so it keeps students interested.
