Today we began our Edmodo journey.
What is edmodo ?
Edmodo is a web-based platform that provides a safe and easy way for your class to connect and collaborate, share content, and access homework, grades and school notices. It is like Facebook but in a safe and controlled environment appropriate for school.
How can teachers use edmodo with students ?
Edmodo provides you with a secure environment where you can create a classroom group for your students. In this virtual group you can :
Place digital resources on edmodo for students to access or download,
Write short summaries of lessons for students who were absent from class (better yet: get your students to write the summary).
Post homework information.
What is it that makes Edmodo class a secure environment ?
Each edmodo class group is managed and controlled by the teacher
Students need an access code to join the class. If a student shares the code outside the class, the teacher can change it, without affecting students already joined in the group.
Students can only communicate to the whole class or to the teacher – private messages between students are not possible.
Anonymous posting is not possible.
Teachers can delete inappropriate posts.
