15 Things You Can Do With Edmodo & How To Get Started

15 Things You Can Do With Edmodo & How To Get Started | Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

This morning on Twitter Steven Anderson shared a link to Edmodo's getting started guide. That guide provides a short run-down of the steps to creating your Edmodo account with your students. Included in the guide are links to additional resources like Edmodo's archived instructional webinars. 

Shortly after ReTweeting Steven's link I received a text message from a friend who was wondering what she can do with Edmodo and why she might want to try it this year. That request got me to pull up the following list of things that teachers and students can do with Edmodo.

Here are fifteen things teachers and students can do with Edmodo.

Euneos's curator insight, August 2, 2013 1:28 PM

Vantaalaiskollega kertoi koulunsa uudesta hienosta valokuidusta. Opetukseen on kaistaa tarjolla kuitenkin vain 2 Mb. Niinpä opettaja pitäessään tuntia GoogleEarthillä luo nettiyhteyden 3G älypuhelimellaan ja käyttää sitä. Että näin meillä Vantaalla. Säästetään datamäärissä ymmärtämättä että se mikä säästetään on pois lasten tulevaisuuden mahdollisuuksista. Valokuituun pitäisi päinvastoin liittää teollisuusstandardien mukainen langaton verkko jokaiseen oppimistilaan. Mitä järkeä on vetää valokuitua kouluun, jos sitä ei aiota tosiasiassa käyttää? Sama kuin rakentaisi moottoritien vain pyöräilytieksi.

iPads in the classroom: Creating faculty and students tech-savvy risk takers | Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

The iPad is not just a cool toy — it’s an invaluable tool in the classroom. In fact, the iPad and other technologies are changing how children learn. But today’s teachers and soon-to-be teachers didn’t learn with iPads or much technology in the classroom. So how will they be able to be effective teachers through technology? Cyndi Danner-Kuhn, faculty/education technology integration coordinator for the College of Education leads the college’s efforts to make their faculty and students tech-savvy risk takers. - See more at: http://www.found.ksu.edu/homepage-features/ipads.html
