Teacher Review For Edmodo

I really like the concept of Edmodo, however, NONE of the apps I tried to launch were pad-compatible. I wasted $50.00 of my money on an app that kids begged to do in paper and pencil. No support from Edmodo or the developer. Disappointing.

How I Use It
If I ever DO use Edmodo again, which is unlikely, I would only use it to push out communications. My students posted nasty pictures and bullied one another from their phones at home and during lunch, so I had to turn off the discussion feature. I think this is a good app for small classrooms of students that have access to desk tops or lap tops.
My Take
NOT! I will not use this app unless some major changes are made: in particular, the use of Edmodo on pads. It fell far short of my expectations which were cultivated in 2 Edmodo workshops.
