I admit, the more I’ve been exploring and using Edmodo, the more I’ve grown to love it. Last week I spoke with a Science teacher who really wanted to find new ways to get her students to collaborate with each other. She already uses Google Docs on a regular basis so students can collaborate and co-create various projects together. However, she had a difficult time keeping up with all the documents in her Gmail account.
Together we decided by adding Edmodo to the mix, organizing and keeping up with her students’ documents would become easier. How so? By sharing a Google Doc with a specific group of students, she would only need to click on the group to see their document. Plus, when students ask for help they can post questions to the whole class or ask for the teacher’s input while they are writing.
