Today we all joined Edmodo which is a social networking site designed for education. We have a class group which is totally private. There are a lot of really amazing feature that will help our class to stay organized and to collaborate. Here are a few:
- Calendar where assignments are posted.
- Posts – I can post links to helpful review and content sites. Students can post sites or ask questions at any time. Parents who join can post questions and comments also.
- Marks – I can enter marks for assignments which students and parents can view, this is private of course.
- Parent access. Parents can sign up and check out what’s going on, this along with the blog will keep parents fully informed of everything that is going on.
