  2. 2. What is Edmodo? Edmodo (Similar to Facebook) is regarded as a social networking site for teachers and students. It provides a free and secure social learning space for a class to connect and collaborate.
  3. 3. National Educational Technology Standards • Edmodo in my opinion help promotes the following standard: – Facilitate and Inspire Student Learning and Creativity • Teachers use their knowledge of subject matter, teaching and learning, and technology to facilitate experiences that advance student learning, creativity, and innovation in both face-to-face and virtual environments. b. Engage students in exploring real-world issues and solving authentic problems using digital tools and resources c. Promote student reflection using collaborative tools to reveal and clarify students’ conceptual understanding and thinking, planning, and creative processes d. Model collaborative knowledge construction by engaging in learning with students, colleagues, and others in face-to-face and virtual environments
  4. 4. Advantages of Edmodo Reasons Why Edmodo Should be Adopted • Edmodo is free to use and contains no advertising • It provides a secure learning environment provided by built-in privacy controls • Teachers can post messages for their students and students can post to the group • Teachers can post classroom assignments, encourage discussions, and track progress online • Teachers can also grade assignments online providing convenient feedback
  5. 5. Advantages of Edmodo Continued: Reasons Why Edmodo Should be Adopted • Enables teachers to network with other teachers to share ideas and resources • Users can connect via mobile smart phones and be updated with the latest post • It has a calendar feature which helps track assignments and events • Students can take quizzes and upload assignments at home or at school
  6. 6. Teacher Perspective • “Edmodo looks and feels just like Facebook, so I haven’t had to spend any time teaching my students how to use it. They can upload attachments and make comments like champs.” • “The first thing students say after signing up for Edmodo.com profiles is, “This looks just like Facebook!” Two minutes later, like clockwork they say, “This is NOTHING like Facebook!” And then the room falls silent as they start personalizing their profiles, writing comments on the class wall, and uploading ridiculous pictures.” http://highlineschoolstechforlearning.word press.com/2012/06/12/edmodo-ateachers-perspective/
  7. 7. Student Perspective Students interviewed on this website said the following: • “Edmodo’s simplicity in terms of interface is what makes it so effective” • “The ability to send homework to the teacher as soon as it’s done” • “Being able to communicate with the teacher or other students if a student is struggling with work or requires further guidance” • Students love the fact that Edmodo is similar to Facebook—a website that is used to communicate with people all over the world. http://www.boxoftricks.net/2008/09/edmo do-what-students-think/
  8. 8. Other Students Perspectives Able to collaborate with others Responses from students at Woodville Thompkins
  9. 9. In Conclusion • Edmodo is a great website for all teachers and students. Edmodo will allow all students to receive assignments, quizzes, etc. either at home or at school. Edmodo will also allow students to become familiar with uploading assignments and taking quizzes online similar to online college classes.
