Classroom Applications

  1. Teachers can post an assignment(s) to their Edmodo website and have students digitally submit their work, which teachers can then grade and return to students online.
  2. Teachers can post a question using their Edmodo site and require students to post a response and comment on each other’s responses (e.g., After reading a text, teachers can require students to post their opinion about the text and respond to one or more of their classmates’ posted opinions).  Teachers are then able to grade the original response, as well as the comments.
  3. Teachers can use Edmodo to pre-assess student background knowledge about a particular topic using Edmodo’s poll feature. Teachers can then use the poll results to inform and design upcoming lessons that are matched to their students’ needs.
  4. Teachers can create folders to store digital course content for students.
