EDMODO NEWS: Below are the letters that went home regarding the use of Edmodo during the unit on Shiloh. Please access the letters below for information regarding how to set up an Edmodo account with your child.
What is Edmodo?
Edmodo is primarily a tool for within-class communication. It allows students to publish posts and participate in discussions within a secure classroom blogging community. Also, through the use of Edmodo, teachers are able to gauge students’ understanding by creating polls, formulating online quizzes, and posting online assignments.
How will Edmodo be used in our classroom?
During various novel units in Language Arts, students will utilize the blogging capability of Edmodo. They will answer weekly response questions regarding the current literature they are reading and engage in an online discussion with their peers. Aside from using this tool in Language Arts, Edmodo will also be used to enhance instruction in Science.
In order to participate in Edmodo, students need to sign up (they will receive instructions in class). Students, please record your username and password, and keep it in a secure location.
