How I Use It
In my classroom, I have used Edmodo to allow students to collaborate in a safe setting. Students enjoy being able to collaborate with the peers using Edmodo because the site feels like a social media site they would use during their leisure time. I use the site for students who are part of my literature circle groups. I post discussion questions and they respond to one another using accountable talk.
My Take
Overall, I feel that Edmodo is a time worthy tool to use. It does take some time initially to get each student set up with an account, but once your students are assigned to your classes/groups it is very quick and easy to use. I value the collaboration that the students have with each other.
