How I Use It
I have used Edmodo for many years as an elementary classroom teacher. Edmodo allows me to communicate with students and parents safely and securely, anytime from anywhere. In Edmodo I use the Groups feature to provide differentiated instruction to meet the learning needs of each student individual student. I can facilitate whole-group and small-group discussions, assign flipped learning tasks, assessments, award badges, provide remediation, gain feedback via polls, encourage the use of technology via SSI access to an unlimited amount of Edtech tools, and so much more. My students have always been very responsive to this platform and love the opportunities it provides for a more connected learning environment.
In my opinion, Edmodo is a one-stop shop providing teachers with everything they need to foster a more connected learning environment built upon collaboration, communication, trust, and more self-directed learning opportunities that are more meaningful and relevant to our digital learners.
Additionally, Edmodo has allowed me to connect with educators worldwide to expand my own skillset, in order to learn and grow professionally. In this large community of educators, I have gained valuable ideas and resources that have given me new insights and allowed me to see things from so many different perspectives. I have gained valuable friendships and connected with so many amazing educators that continue to inspire me and ignite my passion to teach. This has allowed me to grow and become a better teacher and for that I am truly thankful.
