  1. With the introduction of digital technology, the K-12 classroom environment is gradually being transformed. Wish to know how? Go through this list: Student and teacher roles are in flux, with students now taking an active part in their own learning. Teachers are also becoming learners as they shift into new styles of information sharing. Classrooms are also undergoing physical changes to accommodate the structural needs of a technology-dependent curriculum. The classroom of the 21st century reaches out beyond its four walls, bringing in external resources with digital tools. The advent of technological tools like wireless Internet access, mobile communication devices and more has led to the onset of 21st century Blended Learning approaches of learning. Technology in schools has also encouraged our focus on engaging and interactive learning, which is achieved through social forms of student interaction. This allows students to learn off-campus, online. There is enhanced student involvement so that students don’t get bored or become inactive. Students are now prepared for the working environment where technology skills are imperative for job searching and training.
  2. Synchronous learning is where students learn at the same time by activities such as attending a lecture or laboratory.
  3. Location Independent Learning (Asynchronous Learning) is the idea that students learn the same material at different times and locations. Asynchronous learning involves the ability to maintain communication without having to meet at the same place at the same time. The asynchronous learning environment provides students with teaching materials and tools for registration, instruction, and discussion.
  4. Lessons become learner-centred, with the teacher as facilitator. Build an online learning conversation with your class about your subject. It makes using laptops easier by providing simple ways to share files and communicate online. Encourages a peer-learning and peer-support environment – both in the classroom and online. Students enjoy using EDMODO because of its simplicity. Positive effects on the cognitive growth and transmission and acquisition of kills Development of interest and sense of belonging Help the learners in applying problem solving techniques which is more algorithmic Sustainable deep learning
  5. Security Features – why it’s not like Facebook Touted as the Facebook for kids. EDMODO explicitly deals with school and teacher concerns about social networking for students in the following ways: Each EDMODO class group is managed and controlled by the teacher Students need an access code to join the class. If a student shares the code outside the class, the teacher can change it, without affecting students already joined in the group. Students can only communicate to the whole class or to the teacher – private messages between students are not possible. Anonymous posting is not possible. Teachers can delete posts. If schools upgrade (free) to the institutional features, the school can audit all teacher and student activity. Parental access to their children’s posts and to the teacher is an optional feature.
  6. How do I start? Visit – create a teacher account. Think about how you want to use EDMODO in your class – discuss with teachers currently using EDMODO. Create your class group – a group access code is generated – give this to your class. Immediately provide guidelines to the class about the purpose of the EDMODO group (for learning) and expectations of how students will use EDMODO. Remind students of school rules on using online resources and bullying. The most important idea to develop in your class is that the EDMODO group is owned by and shared with the whole class, focused on learning. A few simple starters: Post homework information. Place digital resources on EDMODO for students to access or download, Create polls for students to vote online. Write short summaries of lessons for students who were absent from class (better yet: get your students to write the summary).
