How I Use It
In my digital photography class, students are able to shoot and edit pictures on their phones, then upload directly for grading via the app. Grading of app submitted materials is very easy. Students also complete discussion based assessments via commenting. Unfortunately, our school district uses another grade book system, so I have to export my grades, but this system works well for students as it helps them keep track of overdue files for assignments.
My Take
The Edmodo app compliments and mirrors the experience on the site, allowing for a connected classroom. During the school day, it's a launch pad for assignments. After the bell, it allows for social interaction between students, and a quick way for students to get a hold of me. With notifications and messaging, students are a click away. Enrichment is easy as links to useful sites are easily shared and discussed.
