How I Use It
Upon setting up the class, we were able to allow the students to access Edmodo. Often times we used it to further discussions. We have not used it much with the extensions. The other way that we have used it is to connect with other Edmodo groups to be able to continue to share resources and communicate with each other.
Edmodo provides a protected environment in which students can communicate and work together. Their app store is full of a number of apps that can expand upon the classroom environment. Teachers can use Edmodo to flatten the classroom walls by connecting their classes with other classes. Teachers are also able to use this platform to connect with other educators to share ideas.
Students enjoy this environment as it does mirror Facebook and allows for further discussion that can extend beyond the instructional day. There are many possibilities as to the use of Edmodo.
