How I Use It
I use Edmodo as a running record of everything I have taught. I upload presentations, documents, links and videos that I have used in class so that students and parents can access them easily from home. Students can communicate with eachother and with me. I also give them quizzes and polls to take. The student's love the immediate feedback from these, as do I. Recently, I have been using some of the free apps to assign practice for the students. Edmodo is my most valuable teaching tool.
My Take
Edmodo's user friendly interface allows students to access classroom curriculum more easily than ever before. Students can collaborate, share, access shared materials and communicate with students and teachers in a snap. Edmodo is a safe learning/ communication environment for every classroom. The one thing that would make this a perfect tool is a blogging feature. As an ELA teacher, this would make Edmodo the ideal tool.
