Edmodo in the Grade 5 Classroom

Edmodo in the Grade 5 Classroom

Edmodo in the classroom makes good sense for so many reasons …
If you were a fly on my classroom wall you would see and hear me promoting its use for so many reasons … there are so many opportunities, so many “things” that it can bring to the classroom experience … here are just a few of them (alphabetically speaking).

Alphabetically Speaking –
From “A” to “V”

  • address/recognize different learning styles
  • alternative opportunity to communicate
  • back channel discussions
  • blog
  • book clubs
  • communication with parents
  • communities connect
  • complete assignments
  • connect with students
  • connect with other teachers
  • create book files/lists
  • create quizzes
  • differentiated instruction – create groups
  • digital backpacks
  • digital libraries
  • engagement
  • exercising personal responsibility
