How I Use It
We have used it to train teachers in a professional development situation. They enjoyed the ease of accessing resources and the sharing of ideas anytime anywhere. The ability to grade work and comment on post was useful as well as the ability to post to just certain groups. The social media style interface made the learning management site feel more flexible and fun. Edmodo is much more visually attractive than the traditionally used Moodle or Blackboard systems.
Students were engaged to really reflect in their comments and loved earning the badges. They enjoyed the “Facebook” feel of the tool. The ability to use app on iPad as well as traditional computer was helpful for some that needed to continue work on project at home. I do wish that we could organize my groups into folders as my list has become very long. On a last note, the support community is amazing with Edmodo.
