How I Use It
I set up small groups within edmodo and was able to differentiate tasks according to who I established in the group. I also was able to assign tasks and get feedback while a sub was in my room and I was away. I teach ESL and I found it quite helpful for sending students to links quickly even when they had limited tech experience.
My Take
Edmodo is a great tool for communication, quick polls, quizzes and student responses. Its social media feel engages students. Since students don't use email as much as the teachers' generation, this is a great way to interact! It doesn't offer content itself unless apps are purchased, but it does offer a great tool through which you can teach content in an engaging way.
