How I Use It
I use it to share videos that I created to help them with their assignments and create quizzes for them to complete upon watching the video. I create polls to get a feel on how the students felt about their learning for the day, and I create exit tickets that they can complete at home to assess what they have learned. Students are also able to ask me questions about assignments when they get home and do not have to wait until the next day for an answer.
My Take
I like the product. It allows the students to collaborate together and encourage each other as they are learning. since it is similar to facebook the students are comfortable and familiar with the set up and easily take to it. I like how it allows me to create quizzes, store video links and other materials for my music classes to use. It needs to allow the teacher to be able to upload more than 1 file to the students. I would like to upload multiple worksheets to absent students but would have to take extra steps to make it 1 file which is time consuming and i do not have the time to spare. Need more apps in edmodo that are for music (instrumental and general) and more free apps that schools with no budget could take advantage of especially in the Arts. Reading and math teachers are not the only teachers using this program. Need a way to embed videos in the quizzes.
