How I Use It
Edmodo provides the ability to build an online social community with students while also providing teachers with a learning management system. The new snapshot tool makes it very easy to assess students on the new Common Core State Standards. The ability to quiz, poll, create assignments, and share with my students made is easy to start the process of becoming a, partially, paperless classroom. The students enjoyed its simple interface and resemblance to Facebook. Its usage for them became easy and almost a daily routine.
My Take
Edmodo is a great, simple-to-use learning management and social networking tool that teachers can implement into their classrooms. The ability to communicate through the site, as well as poll, survey, and create assignments makes it an ideal tool for a paperless classroom. My recommendation is to use this tool with students in grades 8 and down and older students may find its simplicity unappealing.
