Edmodo | Where Learning Happens | Sign up, Sign In - 4 views

      Edmoto is a great way to introduce students to online communities. It models Facebook, which could be dangerous if teachers are trying to create learning community and not just a social community. However, it is a great stepping stone into what online courses involve.
    • Rebecca Brink
       
      I agree that it models Facebook quite closely. I saw this as a perk in the light that it was easy for them to grasp how to use.

    "Edmodo helps connect all learners with the people and resources needed to reach their full potential."

    I tried using this as a Learning Management System (LMS) a few years ago.  I was introduced to it through a Science Technology and Mathematics (STEM) Institute I attended.  I found it to be beneficial in aiding students with personal responsibility, by having information available at all times to access.  I moved away from using it when Google Documents became a feature for all of our students.  It was much easier to share that way.  We know use Haiku Learning that has many similar features but allows for Google Drive being linked.

    This is great for having class discussions that you want to be private, so that you as the teacher can facilitate the conversation.
  •  
    online outlet for student collaboration
  •  
    Students can take quizzes, share ideas, work on assignments and discover new resources.
  •  
    I would use this community tool for cooperative learning activities. The value of other perspectives from different backgrounds is paramount as students collaborate on a given topic.

    I love this web site for suggestions for great books to read for my book clubs. You type in titles or genres you or the kids have enjoyed in the past, and they give you recommendations. (think Pandora for books) I have two accounts..one for my student book clubs and one for my personal reading pleasure. One thing I love is it will make a "book shelf" of hot reads in html code that can then be copied and pasted to your library web site so that kids can see suggested reading.

      Awesome, especially for a world language teacher! As an example, I could post a picture and ask students to talk about it/describe it. Great for a fun oral assessment tool. Thanks for sharing this!!

    This tool allows groups to have a conversation around a visual. Very Cool!

    I love this website for online teaching if you have to present a lot of content. I also use it if I have a lot of students who are going to be absent for a particular lecture. This site allows you to upload lecture motes of some kind, and then narrate those notes. Additionally, people you invite to view your presentation can make comments or ask questions within each individual slide. It's a fantastic tool for asynchronous teaching.
  •  
    Great site for interacting asynchronously in many forms.
  •  
    This tool allow collaboration over one document. This can be by voice, video or type. Ideas: Art classes, editing, practicing for speeches, science projects, history from those that lived it. Or personal uses such as long distance communication about student's homework with parents.

    A VoiceThread is a collaborative, multimedia slide show that holds images, documents, and videos and allows people to navigate slides and leave comments in 5 ways - using voice (with a mic or telephone), text, audio file, or video (via a webcam). Use it to for online discussion and collaborative project based learning.
  •  
    VoiceThread is an interactive tool that allows for collaborating, sharing, and commenting. VoiceThread is a free program that can be operated by students and easily monitored by teachers. It allows for uploading pictures, narration by the creator and commenting by other viewers in 5 different ways-including audio and text. It has revolutionized story telling and can be used by teachers in all subject areas to present and share information. VoiceThread can be used as a creation, discussion, and assessment tool. VoiceThread is changing the way in which information in presented and shared.

    "Classroom 2.0 is a free, community-supported network. We especially hope that those who are "beginners" will find this a supportive comfortable place to start being part of the digital dialog. " While this isn't is a Web 2.0 tool, it looks like it might be a helpful group for beginners like me. Living in Laos, I like how international the group looks. Does anyone else have suggestions of this kind of support group for beginners?

  •  
    Resources like Classroom 2.0 are what a lot of my "beginners" would benefit from. A community supported network aimed at easing one into the technology discussion and learning some cool resources along the way. I encourage teachers who want to find some level of comfort with technology to engage it through sites like Classroom 2.0
