Bringing a classroom conversation into Edmodo gives students the opportunity to do some collaborative thinking that might not otherwise happen if done in class. This teacher has designed a great lesson that asks students to write an opinion statement and share it via Edmodo to encourage collaborative thinking and responses.
Project Based Learning (PBL) is such a great way to give students the opportunity to apply what they're learning in the classroom to real world situations. Through the use of Edmodo, this teacher developed a PBL experience that was shared with another classroom in Australia.
One of the things I like best about Edmodo is the ability to collaborate with other classrooms through the use of focused groups. Those collaborations can help to develop many 21st century learning skills. This teacher from Alaska describes how she got started in a global collaboration project through the use of Edmodo.
Quality uses of technology begin with quality instructional strategies. As I read through this article, I kept thinking that all of these strategies can be easily accomplished in Edmodo with guidance from the teacher and the use of features such as polls, quizzes, notes and replies, and small groups.
