How I Use It
Introducing Edmodo in the classroom to the teachers and students I work with as a Technology Integration Specialist has revolutionized their classrooms. Having a Facebook appeal the younger students were very anxious to get started using it after school. The teachers like all the features but especially the fact that they can submit a quiz and get immediate results for summative assessment.
My Take
Our county has their own subdomain within Edmodo so we have district wide access to the the data usage. It is great resource for teachers to house their documents and resources for a particular lesson using their library feature. Several of our teachers use it for Professional Learning Communities and book clubs for professional development as well. Edmodo has the capabilities to be used in multiple ways in and out of the classroom and yet is safe for our students to use. The Snapshot feature is a wonderful tool to be utilized when implementing the Common Core Standards and gaining knowledge about the students' learning.
