I am excited to announce that I am officially (as of yesterday) an Edmodo beginner! I have joined a class and we are conducting class in the Edmodo social network's learning environment this week. From my introduction readings, I learned quite a bit about what Edmodo is capable of doing for us. I was pleased to see that parents can participate (in a limited capacity) as well. I fell that parent involvement in a real bonus when using a networking site like this. Social networking sites like Facebook often get a bad rap with parents because of not so positive ways that students conduct themselves while on these sites.
As we begin this week of class on Edmodo, I look forward to experimenting with the features myself and becoming immersed in the use of this technology.
