Why?


-----Students NEED feedback and they WANT feedback, they DESERVE feedback.

How?


Annotate


-----This is built in to Edmodo, so you can comment on Word.doc's submitted as assignments in Edmodo.
----------Edmodo is now synced with both Google Docs and Microsoft Office 365.
----------You lose the clutter of paper.
----------You can open docs of differing formats without downloading.
----------Students gain valuable feedback.
----------Give feedback within apps listed Assess section too.

Folders


-----Organize your resources however you choose; SHARE folders with your Groups, individuals.
-----You can now group folders within folders for better organization.
-----Edmodo has reworked the Library feature to make storing, accessing, and sharing files easier.

PIN


-----You can now "Pin" posts.
----------Keep important information at the top of your Group feed for as long as needed so it does not become lost in the shuffle.

Parent Code


-----Allow parents to see what their student does, securely and easily.
-----Parents see what is due, turned in, or not turned in. They can also see your feedback.

Network


-----This has been mentioned in some of my past presentations, and often in life, you need a Professional/Personal Learning Network (PLN). Edmodo allows you to build an effective support network. Teacher Groups, Professional Communities exist within Edmodo. Join and follow for free. Opt in or out of notifications.
