EDMODO

An Online Networking Application for Teachers and Students

What is Edmodo??
Teachers are using the Edmodo tool in many different ways. Four of my favorite ways to use this technology are assessments, mobile learning, current events, and differentiated instruction. Teachers can assess their students by utilizing the Edmodo quiz builder to assess students’ learning during or after a unit of study. The students can take online tests to see how they are doing and where they need to improve. Edmodo can also help students stay up to date on the latest news by creating a small group called “current events” and leveraging the RSS (Rich Site Summary) that uses a family of standard web feed formats to publish frequently updated information to feed top news sources to the group. One of the most important ways that teachers can use Edmodo is through a from of instruction that meets students’ diverse needs by providing materials and tasks of varied levels of difficulty, with varying degrees of support, through multiple instructional groups and time variations. Edmodo can help teachers do this by delivering differentiated content in a classroom through the use of small groups and shared folders.
