How I Use It
I've used Edmodo several ways in my classroom. One way is to quickly assess their prior knowledge on a particular ELA or Math Standard or an exit ticket to assess what they have learned after a directed lesson. In addition, I've used Edmodo as a platform to conduct digital whiteboard activities like "Window Wednesday" or "Thankful Thursday". Another way allowed my students to pen pal with students across the US after connecting through Skype. Lastly, I use Edmodo to network with educators around the globe to enhance my teaching skills.
Edmodo is an excellent platform I have used for the past 4 years. I love connecting with others who share a passion of teaching. If I need additional teaching ideas or a lesson on any particular lesson, I search on Edmodo using their various groups and communities. My students' needs are met constantly, whether to review, pre-teach, or further apply their newfound knowledge.
