How I Use It
Students can view links to translations or to websites on Roman culture and history. The comment system allows for alternative assessment and stimulates discussion where it might not have existed in the classroom. My Latin club officers communicate and keep members up to date on events. It would be nice to have an easier way to import students or control their profile pictures on the site.
My Take
Edmodo has helped my Latin classes experience more Roman culture than traditional classroom means. By creating a community online, students are able to view links to Roman culture and discuss them easily within the site. It's similar to Facebook which seems natural to the students and they pick up on it easily.
