How I Use It
I used Edmodo to work with another teacher to collaboratively work with her students on book studies and literature circles. We were each able to upload assignments for the students, have group discussions and as well as network with teachers from other schools who are in my connections.
Edmodo is a great way to keep students engaged in learning during and outside of the school day. It has a Facebook/ social media feel with an educational edge. Students enjoyed responding to tasks in Edmodo and being able to collaborate with their peers outside of the school day. Teachers enjoy the fact that you can archive a group for a period of time so that students are not on it all night messaging each other with off task discussions.
