A Journey into the Teaching Experience

A site maintained by teachers for teachers

Using Edmodo for the benefit of the teacher, student and parents.

Edmodo is a social learning platform for teachers, students, and parents. It is commonly thought of as the Facebook of schools.

Edmodo can be incorporated into classrooms through a variety of  applications. Current uses include posting assignments, where they could be sorted for example by either who did not turned in their assignment or graded and not graded. It is also good for  creating polls for student responses with the advantage of instant feedback.

Edmodo allows the students to upload assignments for their teachers to view and grade.  Students who are normally shy in the classroom, can take advantage of edmodo  and use it to speak privately with the teacher.

Parent can also do an account which will  allow them to see their children’s assignments and grades. Teachers can also send alerts to parents about school events, missed assignments, and other important notices through Edmodo.

    This looks like a good thing to use since it will definitely help in the communication between parents-students-teachers. If the students run into any difficulty while doing their homework or studying they could easily contact their teacher about any problem they may be facing.

    Have you used this yourself? Have you tried creating a group or a fictitious classroom? I would really like to know your views about how this can be used in a real classroom context and which type of lesson, for example could best benefit from its use?
