    • What is it?
      Edmodo is a Learning Management System (LMS) for students and teachers.
      Think of it as a “Social Network” for your school
      The entire school can participate.
      Students use a code given by the teacher to add that class to their Edmodo account.
      The more teachers in a school use it the more helpful it is to the students.
    • Sign Up
      you choose this one!!
      Teacher accounts allow the user to create and manage classes and post assignments and discussions
      • Student accounts allow the user to join classes using a teacher provided code and respond to assignments and discussions
    • Teacher vs. Student
      A teacher may create multiple classes. The teacher will give the students a “class code” in order for them to join that class.
      English
      Math
      Student Account
      When the student enters the code they will automatically be added to the class associated with that code.
      1st Period
      Science
      History
      2nd Period
      Teacher
      Account
      Students can join multiple classes as long as they have the code for them.
      5th Period
    • Features
      After completing the simple sign-up procedure you will have access to all the great features Edmodo has to offer.
    • Home Screen
      The home screen contains a feed of recent posts and events relevant to your profile. It also contains links to other options and settings.
      The feed can be filtered by group or class.
    • Classes
      Teachers have full control over their classes. They can add, remove and contact students through their group dashboard.
      Teachers can also create “small groups” when the class is broken up for class projects, allowing the groups to share resources with each other.
    • Assignments
      Teachers can add assignments to classes, complete with description, due date, and any necessary links or attachments.
      Once submitted the teacher can instantly grade and comment on the material.
    • Calendar
      Keep students organized by setting dates for tests and events.
      Student calendars will show events for each class in a customizable color.
      Assignments are automatically added to the calendar by their due date.
    • Gradebook
      Assignments added by the teacher are automatically added to the gradebook.
      Students can view their grade from their classes instantly, as well as view any comments made by the teacher.
    • Library
      The Library is a collection of personal and shared material stored on the site that the members can access later.
      Any links or files added by the teacher or student are added to the Library.
    • Usability
      While Edmodo seems daunting it is very simple.
      After logging in to the site simply scan around and find the link you need.
      Edmodo also provides a step-by-step User Guide to help new teachers get started http://help.edmodo.com/userguide/
    • Pros/Cons
      Very Flexible
      Could be used for many grade levels
      Convenient
      Allows learning to take place outside of the classroom
      Ease of Use
      Even non-tech teachers can use it.
      Free!
      And consistently upgraded with new features
      Parental Access
      Parents can access the site for their child to see the progress.
      Implementation
      Some schools may be wary of using a LMS
      One-Way
      Difficult for students to communicate to the group
      Name Control
      Students can create their own names/pseudonyms when signing up
      Daunting
      Site can seem very large and unwieldy at first view.
      PROS
      CONS
    • Use in Class
      As a LMS (Learning Management System) Edmodo is used to organize your classes into one easy to use system. However the system is only as good as the teacher and still requires the teacher to provide quality lessons and assessments to the students.
