How I Use It
surveys, forums, discussion, homework submission.
Edmodo is like facebook for the classroom. There are other sites very similar as well. Edmodo had some quirks I didn't like, such as the survey I created made it so I couldn't read the comments my students took so long to write. (Weird formatting issue on the tech side). I do like the idea, and currently use Schoology, which seems a little more mature. I suggest Edmodo for elementary-middle school. There are great ways to get involvement with students, like forum posts, submitting assignments online, even taking tests.
