In the ECMP 355 class I am currently taking, we were encouraged to learn about a new educational technology tool that we were unfamiliar with. As you may have seen on my latest posts and technology categories, I dabbled in Tagxedo. Today we shared these experiences as a class and I just had to highlight Edmodo as an exemplary resource. Similar to the Facebook interface, Edmodo allows teachers to setup an online networking community through Edmodo. This would be great for students to interact with the teacher outside of the school setting, develop online etiquette skills and access knowledge with a limited learning curve (due to the Facebook similarity). Please watch my colleague, Denny Park’s humorous tutorial on the uses of this resource in education.
