How I Use It
I teach teachers across my district how to use Edmodo. Teachers use Edmodo to remove paper from their classrooms. I've seen several classrooms that have gone completely paperless because of Edmodo. Edmodo is really what the teacher makes of it. Teachers can use Edmodo every once in a while, or they can literally make Edmodo an extension of their classroom. If teachers aren't ready to use it with their students, Edmodo offers teacher communities. In the communities, teachers can join their subject area community and get ideas for lessons in their subject area. I highly recommend Edmodo to extend your classroom.
Edmodo is the best place for teachers and students to take learning beyond the classroom. Edmodo allows teachers to communicate with their students 24/7. Teachers can post notes and include any type of file (.doc, .pptx, .pdf, etc.). In addition, teachers can post alerts, assignments, quizzes, and polls. Edmodo is also great because it is totally free for everyone. Edmodo also has the best support team of any App or program I have ever used. They respond quickly to email and phone calls, and they have a dedicated space on their site to contact support. Finally, the provide an 11 hour free PD opportunity called Edmodocon each year before school starts.
