How I Use It
I created an online classroom for 2nd and 3rd grade that the students have been using throughout the year. Creating a lesson is very simple and all the links can be directly added to the lesson for student access. This allows for focus and easy access to learning activities for the students.The students enjoy the independence and can progress at their own pace, allowing for differentiation among learners.
The students work on using their digital voice in their responses which are seen and approved by the teacher before they are posted.
The students love the platform and as a teacher I enjoy creating a lesson that has ease of access which leads to being able to share more activities with the students.
Edmodo supports grouping of students, posting of lessons, and student submissions. Teacher and student responses can be set to different levels--public and private. The classroom can be closed, so only those with the access code can have access. Edmodo is a wonderful, safe environment for students to learn and share.
