How I Use It
Specifically, I allow students to apply to be either flipped workers or orbital workers. Flipped workers do all the same work as classmates, but they are allowed to work ahead using digital copies of the notes/activities and they are required to do 2 projects where their classmates do 1. Orbital workers do 3 projects and do not do the regular "pencil and paper" work. I use edmodo to place students in small groups, so I can communicate with ALL of my Flipped workers or ALL of my Orbital workers whether they are in First or Fourth period. I love being able to manage and document my communication with students. ,
I teach US and World History and I used Edmodo daily in a variety of ways: to schedule due dates, tests and activities with the planner, to share links to pertinent websites, to share digital copies of handouts (lessening my environment impact).
