1. Post assignments for students. Edmodo allows teachers to attach files to assignment announcements. If there is a file your students need in order to complete an assignment, they can access it at the same place they view the announcement. Less clicking is good.
2. Create digital libraries. Students and teachers can create digital libraries for housing their important files. No need to keep track of USB drives because you can access your files from any Internet-connected computer.
3. Post messages on the “wall.” This allows students to ask questions of each other and their teacher. Teachers, of course, can post messages for all students to read.
I cannot say enough about how great Edmodo is. If you have not checked out Edmodo as a possible classroom management system, you are doing yourself a disservice.
Agreed! This will be my second year using edmodo, and as long as it continues to be free I will continue to use it.
