Edmodo is a web-based platform that provides a safe and easy way for your class to connect and collaborate, share content, and access homework, grades, and school notices. It is like Facebook, but in a safe and controlled environment appropriate for school.

How can I use Edmodo with my students?
Edmodo provides a secure environment in which you can create a classroom group for your students. In this virtual group, you can :
  • Place digital resources on Edmodo for students to access or download,
  • Create polls for students to vote online.
  • Write short summaries of lessons for students who were absent from class.
  • Post homework information.
  • Create quizzes for students to take online.
  • Post questions and have students respond.

What makes Edmodo a secure environment for my students?
Edmodo explicitly deals with school and teacher concerns about social networking for students in the following ways:
  • Each Edmodo class group is managed and controlled by the teacher.
  • Students need an access code to join the class. If a student shares the code outside the class, the teacher can change it, without affecting students already joined in the group.
  • Students can only communicate to the whole class or to the teacher – private messages between students are not possible.
  • Anonymous posting is not possible.
  • Teachers can delete posts.
  • Parental access to their children’s posts and to the teacher is an optional feature.
