Edmodo Mini Lessons

Showing teachers the potential of Edmodo and how easy it is to post quizzes, assignments and discussion is the beginning part of training. However, teachers sometimes find it difficult to actually use Edmodo long term or in effective ways with their students. It's always nice to hear fresh ideas on how to use Edmodo.

Edmodo has some great examples of mini-lessons they posted on their site. These are actual ideas teachers have used with their classes. Here are a few ideas from that post.

  • Students write a definition for foreshadowing, watch a short film looking for evidence of foreshadowing, and then posting their observations.
  • Embed examples of book trailers for students to view. Create a folder with links to resources. Have students create their own book trailer and post it on Edmodo.
  • Link a video documentary or video commentary about a current or high interest event from any news magazine website. Students must then write a paragraph that either supports, opposes, or offers a new argument.

I'd love to hear how you use Edmodo with your classes. Leave a comment below and let me know!
