Welcome back to our first Fabulous Friday Find of the new year. If you’re looking for a way to get you and your students organized and on track until May, then this find may be just what you’re looking for. We would like to introduce you to Edmodo! Edmodo provides teachers and students a secure place to connect and collaborate, share content and educational applications, and access homework, class discussions, and notifications. Their goal is to help educators harness the power of social media to customize the classroom for each and every learner.
I bet you didn’t know that CCPS has its own Edmodo domain just for our teachers and students! That’s right…teachers can set up student accounts or let the students do it themselves! Teachers can also post assignments, quizzes, reminders, and add important dates to the class calendar. Do you want to save documents in one space so everyone has access? Edmodo can do that too and much more! You can even assign your students badges when they meet certain milestones in their learning. The platform is very user friendly but if you get stuck, they have an excellent Help Center. So, head on over to our site and sign up today!
If you’re looking for your school’s code, just send a quick message to your ITRT and Edmodo will automatically place you at your homeschool.
