Educational Technology Guy: EdmodoCon 2012 - free online educational conference Aug 8th

When I first shared Edmodo with classes, students thought I had magically bypassed the district's block on Facebook. I'm not quite that tech savvy or that well connected.

 

I am a big fan of Edmodo because of how similar it is to Facebook, even down to the color scheme. It's so easy to use and quick to learn that several teachers were using it the day after I introduced it to them. They could be presenters themselves now.

 

The ed tech buzz I hear predicts that Edmodo will surpass Moodle in a few years. Given its format, ease, and quick responses to queries, I agree that could happen.

A Fair(y) Use Tale

This is a great video in which Disney characters explain copyright fair use guidelines. Gives the viewer a bit of whiplash, but it's a great resource for introducing the issue to classes.

Copyright rules need to be taught in school. There is a difference between fair use for students, educators, and the average Joe.

Recent discussion with colleagues supports the notion that Edmodo will surpass Moodle as the platform of choice, in part because most of us don't teach online classes. In response to a group discussion, I gave my two cents:

 

"Edmodo's like a motorcycle: fun, quick to learn how to drive, and doesn't require a lot of gas. Moodle's like a tour bus: great amenities, but it takes a lot more time and fuel to get it up to highway speed before you can hit cruise control, plus it takes a lot of graphics to make it look stylish. Ed Tech experts I've talked to agree it's best to use both if you can. Students don't have any trouble with either. Option: Link to Edmodo from Moodle. Use Google Docs for both so you don't have to re-upload revised documents. I can get to both on my iPhone. ♥ them both."

Copyright & Fair Use @Web English Teacher

How shall we encourage students to observe copyright when it's so easy to violate? These lesson plans help us all understand copyright principles better.

 

The links on this site provide good depth to understanding what copyright rules students and teachers should be following. The lesson plans on the NCTE's readwritethink site could be abbreviated to fit shorter time frames.
