How I Use It
Edmodo enables me to be a highly effective teacher under the Danielson rubric. In particular, Domain 3: Instruction, in the following areas: 3a: Communicating with Students 3b: Using Questioning and Discussion Techniques 3c: Engaging Students in Learning 3d: Using Assessment in Instruction And, also in Domain 2: Classroom Environment 2a: Creating an Environment of Respect and Rapport (both in and out of the classroom) 2b: Establishing a Culture for Learning
My Take
I used Edmodo to both inform students about homework due dates, projects, tests, etc as well as to further the classroom conversation. I pose higher-level questions to students related to the day's lesson, and find that not only to the "usual" students participate, but also the students who normally do not raise their hands in class! They have given me tons of positive feedback and Edmodo is a terrific social learning network.
