How I Use It
Classrooms are set up and all assignments are directed through the site. Students complete assignments and upload to their own folder. Although awesome, the students still need to be monitored, especially when blogging. Teaching at the middle school level, the students made many attempts to become accustomed to it. Now, we couldn't do without it!
My Take
Once set up, Emodo is awesome for teachers and students. The students love the "FaceBook" set-up and enjoy interacting with peers. Teachers are wise to monitor, monitor, monitor. Set-up took a bit of time, but it was worth it! With this product, and all others, you get what you put into it.
