Last week the Wall Street Journal had an article announcing that Edmodo had received a $15 million venture capital investment from the founder of LinkedIn and a former VP of Facebook.

That article gave me the idea for this post of fifteen things teachers and students can do with Edmodo. Edmodo Resources. Resources. Creating an Online Resource Library on Edmodo. Although I use Evernote on a daily basis to bookmark useful websites and clip interesting articles/lesson ideas to build up an enormous bank of resources, it isn't the most tidy of places as I literally just save there quickly knowing that I can find it again later by doing a keyword/tag search.

Creating an Online Resource Library on Edmodo

I do share this collection with people online and in school but I've never really seen it used much because it's not that visually attractive and can sometimes seem a little overwhelming due to she sheer amount of stuff on it. For these reasons, I also store duplicates of my favourite resources on Edmodo using their 'Library' tool. You can upload documents (up to 100mb) in size as well as save links to websites and embeddable content (e.g. YouTube videos). From the Library itself, you can only add resources individually one at a time however by sending a message to yourself on the main Edmodo screen with lots of attachments, you also can add multiple resources at once.

Last week my deputy head put a writing task on Edmodo for KS2 - within four days, 42 children had chosen, in their own free time at break or at home, to complete it!

Simon Haughton's Blog: Edmodo

They weren't forced, it wasn't formally set as homework - they just decided themselves that they wanted to do it. To say that Edmodo is a success at my school would be putting it mildly. Since my last post (view here), I've managed to get about half of KS1 signed up too and have even had children who are off ill logging in at home during the day. Having had more time to explore Edmodo, I can now explain some of the tools I overlooked last time, as well as give you some useful little tips I've discovered to help get the most out of Edmodo. Firstly, let me talk about 'assignments'. To complete an assignment, children have to click on the 'turn in' button on the assignment description before typing their work in (and upload any pictures/files) - they shouldn't do it by replying to the message.

Tagged with: BIEBuck Institute for EducationDayna LaurPBL A few weeks ago, Dayna Laur from the Buck Institute for Education (BIE) conducted an excellent webinar about using Edmodo to facilitate project based learning.

Project Based Learning with Edmodo

Last week she shared her experiences in a blog post that teachers can use as a blueprint for creating their own PBL lessons. In the post, Dayna describes how she used Edmodo with her high school law class to support a project aimed at understanding how to reduce crime in the United States. First, Laur posted relevent articles and encouraged her students to discuss them in small groups in Edmodo. Students then created presentations and shared them with their classmates, allowing them to gather feedback and revise their work.
