My Take
It has really changed my teaching. First, we have gone almost completely paperless, but more importantly, now I get more individual time with my students. Instead of having them at my desk, all calling out my name and asking for clarification. I post EVERYTHING on Edmodo. This covers the whole assignment, no lost work, no questions all of it is there. If they do need any clarification a simple message usually does the trick. I cannot teach without it. Not mention their help desk is AMAZING, almost instant answers even late at night (don't these people sleep?). Did I mention it is FREE.
