How I Use It
I use Edmodo to post assignments, create quizzes, discussion board, and to share content via videos or websites. We are a Google Apps district and Edmodo has integrated Google Drive into their system for easy turn in or sharing of student work. Edmodo allows students to help each other outside of the classroom by replying to others posts 24/7. Edmodo provides a safe and secure platform for students to develop online etiquette according to teacher direction. I also used the badge system to award students for positive behavior. When this is tied to a reward such as extra credit, prizes, participation points, etc. students will work for those positive rewards creating a better online and physical classroom environment.
My Take
I have used Edmodo in my own classroom for three years and now I support several teachers and one Middle School who have chosen Edmodo as there LMS. You will get out of it what you put into it. There are a lot of tools available to educators which are well outlined in the review. The most powerful aspect to me is the ability to communicate with students outside of the classroom to remind them of upcoming assignments. When students create their profile they can choose to have those reminders go to their email, phone, or both.
