Edmodo Planner (events)

Every teacher is expected to post what is going on in your class in the Edmodo planner. When the Edmodo Planner is being used by every teacher in the school, a parent or a student can look at their planner and see due dates, test dates, etc at a glance for every class that they have. Here is an example:

Planner Reminders

  • Students can only view their full Edmodo planner on the web version of Edmodo.
  • They can view the planner by upcoming events in their notification

2 things can make it easier to see full version:

  • Edmodo webpage shortcut: Sharrow>Bookmark or webclip
  • iPad Shortcut: Settings>General>Keyboard to enter shortcut for username

Troubleshooting tips if events do not show up in student planner:

  • Check to be sure you and your students are in the same time zone (settings)
  • When adding to the planner, do not use the ALL GROUPS feature, it will not show up

Edmodo Notes

  • An Edmodo note is a good way to get a copy of something to a student that you are planing to collect by paper or is a way to get information to a student.
  • If there is a due date associated with what you are posting, put it in the planner.
  • Good practice: Attach PDFs of documents if the student is only needing to view it. This way the formatting does not get messed up on the iPad.
  • If you want your parents to see the note, you have to add the parent group to the note corresponding to that group. See example in link below.

Edmodo Assignments

  • Edmodo assignments should only be used for something that can be turned in digitally.
  • If you create an assignment here that is not collected here, then it appears late for the student and the parent
  • If you are just trying to notify the student of something, use the planner and/or note feature.
  • If you give the students a choice on whether you accept electronic or paper version, have them turn in an electronic message saying that they are turning in a paper version so that it doesn't appear late to the parent or state it in the instructions

Edmodo Folders

  • Sometimes things you attach in Edmodo can get lost in the posts
  • You can create folders to share with your students to help with organization
