It's easier than you think to differentiate with technology.
Would you like a safe way to differentiate with technology in your classroom, a place online where you can connect and collaborate with students, parents, and others at your school? In this 3-Minute Classroom Problem Solver, SimpleK12's Teacher Learning Community presenter Kim Munoz explains how you can use Edmodo to connect with students safely online, and differentiate learning.
Edmodo is a safe, secure learning network specifically designed for use with students. And it's completely free for classroom use. Edmodo is great for many things, and differentiation is one of them.
Watch Kim's video above to learn how you can use Edmodo groups to differentiate with technology in your classroom. However, that's just one way to use this tool in the classroom. Here are a few of my favorite ideas:
- Allow students to submit their projects via sharing on your Edmodo homepage. This is a great time-saver and allows them to take pride in their projects by sharing on your public classroom space.
- When students share their projects on the classroom page, encourage other students to critique their work. This provides an opportunity to discuss with students digital citizenship and peer review etiquette.
- Create your own book clubs with the Edmodo group feature. Students can discuss their reading virtually wherever they might be, all they need is a device with an internet connection.
If you're looking to differentiate with technology, Edmodo is a great tool to use to get the job done. Have you tried this out yet with your students? If so, what do they think of it? Let me know in a comment on this article.
