Edmodo Presentation Tammy Block Jason Sopko
Tammy Block, Jason Sopko Edmodo Presentation This presentation is intended to to given to teachers, as we both have the opportunity to use professional development time to spend with them. The slides will demonstrate how set up and use edmodo as a teaching tool in the classroom. Just as importantly, it will be to sell teachers the benefits it has by using it in the classroom setting. We chose this because we felt this is an easy, effective way for teachers to implement a blended teaching style to the students. It offers the opportunity for students to interact with the teacher or peers away from school in a meaningful way. The design of edmodo is familiar to many of our students since it set up very similar to facebook. We liked the security and the potential it has for the social aspect. This tool allows for the quietest student in class to have and voice their opinion. We like the fact that if a student or teacher is gone, they can have access to an assignment or activity from home or mobile phone.
