EDMODO: ENHANCING CLASSROOM COLLABORATION
This seminar focuses on strategies for integrating Edmodo into K-8 classrooms. Edmodo is a "secure, social learning platform for teachers, students, schools and districts. We provide a safe and easy way for your class to connect and collaborate, share content and access homework, grades and school notices. Our goal is to help educators harness the power of social media to customize the classroom for each and every learner" (Edmodo, 2013). Through this educational platform, teachers can post assignments, create polls, embed videos, and establish groups for collaborative learning. Students can join an established learning group, access the shared resources, and submit assignments. Parents and families can also be invited into the secure network and provided with opportunities to engage in the learning community.
