How I Use It
My students created a digital movie. In the past I had to download them onto flash drives. Now the students can upload them onto Edmodo for presentation. This teaches students how to upload documents which they will have to do in college. I also have online discussions in Edmodo. I pose a question and the students answer and comment on other responses. I tie this to the idea that scientists communicate worldwide and that students need to learn how to communicate clearly online. There are many other uses in Edmodo, but I am just a beginner.
My Take
Edmodo provides an online "cloud" to store student work, assign and submit assignments, and perform online testing.CC$
