This cycle, I’m teaching students how Edmodo can help organize their busy lives. Edmodo offers many resources to help them. Here’s what’s new:
Calendar – Students now have the ability to add their own reminders and important dates to their calendar. As the date approaches, they will be reminded via their yellow notification box in the top-right corner.
Badges – Students can earn “badges” for exemplary work on Edmodo. They show up on the students’ profile pages for things like proofreading posts, digital citizenship, contributing to discussions, sharing research and projects, and many, many more. They can even earn a badge for having you sign up with Edmodo as well!
Assignments/Gradebook – I will be asking students to send assignments to me through Edmodo. Grades will be given which you are then able to see if you have signed up for Edmodo. If they forget to submit an assignment, you’ll be able to see that as well.
Library and “Backpack” – Unless your son or daughter has their own USB memory stick, transferring computer work from home to school is extremely difficult. I’ll be encouraging students to use their Edmodo “backpacks” to store and access their files privately and securely within their Edmodo accounts.
