How I Use It
I have utilized Edmodo with all levels of students. Many tout Edmodo as the Facebook of the classroom, but I believe this comparison diminishes its actual value. I use Edmodo as a tool to provide my students with access to my handouts, templates, and assignments and primarily to turn in assignments. I can also share links and upload videos. I set alerts and send out reminders, keep track of assignments that have been turned in (or not) and address student questions outside of the classroom. Students have access to my notes, presentations, handouts etc. while being able to check on their grades, turn in makeup work, and get notices about upcoming due dates.
I have found Edmodo to be an invaluable tool in my classroom. It is easy to use and easy to set up and can be accessed through a PC or an app. I also found that students with limited digital skills are able to navigate it with relative ease.
