I plan on teaching digital citizenship at the beginning of the school year. I would like to get Edmodo up and running in the first few weeks of school. I will also have to educate parents on the uses of Edmodo. This will be a place to post assignments, upcoming events, discussion questions, helpful links or websites, and even videos for students to view. It will be a place teachers and students to communicate with each other. It will be very important to set clear guidelines.
It will take some practice and planning to make all this happen in the classroom. I think starting with a few tools and then adding on will be the best way for me to accommodate the 21st Century learner. I also think teachers will benefit from collaborating with each other as grade level teams and across grade levels.
I look forward to the challenge!!!!
