How I Use It
Edmodo can be accessed across multiple devices, using the Edmodo library lets me store content, resources, websites, and more for easy student access. It allows me to streamline the process of sharing content, especially if students will access it via several classes/ throughout the year. I also 'post notes' to the group feed inside Edmodo. Similar to many social media sites, the feed is the easiest way to get the discussion going within my classroom. With the ability to attach files or website links, I can easily share resources, such as notes, powerpoints, videos, and more directly to specified group members. Posting quizzes and assignments, complete with resources and due dates, are some of the other things I share via the Edmodo news feed. These are integrated into the member calendars & grade books. The layout is simple and user-friendly, and allows for student access from any web enabled device.
My Take
Edmodo is an integrated platform for student-teacher interaction, resource sharing, enrichment, and special needs. It fosters student self-assessment and tracking, and allows for transparent and timely feedback for both students, parents, and teachers.
