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?
