How I Use It
Teachers can post current articles to the website, and students can read the links and respond to the articles. Students like that they can get text messages when a new assignment has been posted to the website. This way they can work ahead if they want to.
Edmodo is a great way to tie social media with current events. Students really like their social media, so by posting current articles to the website, students are more likely to do their homework. It doesn't feel like homework to them!
