Edmodo in Spanish

Edmodo is a educational social media tool. It is just like facebook, but is set up for education so that students can interact with one another on the class page. The teacher can post links, videos, questions, and even quizzes on the class page for students to respond to.

For ideas on how to incorporate edmodo into your Spanish class….Lately, I have been posting several videos to our class page. If we watch a video in class, I will post it on edmodo so students can re-watch it at home. Or if we listen to a song in class, I can post the video online for students to watch. I have given students several additional adjectives that they can use to describe the videos when they post a comment.

Today in class we listened to Sr. Wooly’s “Guapo” during our unit on descriptions. The kids absolutely loved the song. So I posted the video to the song on our edmodo page.
There are so many videos on youtube that it is not difficult to find something that relates to our lesson.

We will be posting many other ideas for edmodo throughout the year. Do you use edmodo in your classes?

    thanks for this post! I am going to try and figure out edmodo this year.

  2. Using Edmodo this year to get my upper levels to write & speak to another class in a Spanish speaking country. First week of communication is complete and students are loving it so far. Most are very eager to log on and see what the other class has posted on the group page and learn about the other students. Hopefully soon we will incorporate Facetime or Skype to communicate as well to practice their oral skills. They are quite excited about this.

      I’d love to know how you use Edmodo to write and speak to a class in another country. I’d love for my Spanish students to do this. I know they’d love it, but I don’t know how to go about setting it up. Any input appreciated!
