Hi Week 9,
I enjoyed using Edmodo as a social learning site. I’d heard my teacher friends talk about it and finally had a chance to use it last week. Based on the levels of discussion it generated during the week, I think it is an excellent collaborative site. It provides a safe environment for young learners and parents to keep an eye on the interaction among their peers. I am curious to know if there are incidents of students giving the code to outsiders, if teachers need the consent of school authorities for these educational practices, and if parents are enthusiastic and supportive. Thanks for the wealth of information on social media that was presented. It was an eye-opener! My only suggestion for improvement relates to the poll in Socrative. The poll questions were very specific to the classroom/school environment, so my responses to quite a number of the questions were “Not Applicable”. Other than that, great work!
