First Week Using Edmodo

This week I have begun using Edmodo with my Year 3/4 class, primarily as a homework tool. Previously we had a class blog, and I made the switch to Edmodo in the hope that children would be more motivated to add their own ideas and comments. It has proved to be very popular with the class, notably with more reluctant writers and EAL students. 

Here you can see a discussion thread started by one of my Japanese students about her cat. The homework task was to upload a picture to share with the class, and to tell us a little about the picture. Students were also required to ask questions about their classmates photos to earn a 'Questioning Badge'. Emma did a great job responding to the questions.

    Hi Celia,

    Thanks for sharing!  Clearly the social aspect of a tool like Edmodo is a way of generating opportunities for authentic language exchanges between students.

    Hi Celia,

    This looks great! We are considering using emodo to share learning tasks at home and to hopefully engage our parent community more readily. Did you experience any problems setting this up with your class? Do you encourage your parents to comment and have there been any issues with managing comments?  If they do comment how have you set them up to the site or do they use their child's login? It would be great to have your expertise and any helpful advice.
