For our Living Schools Lab project we have decided to roll out Edmodo across our school. Our initial plan was to get up and running in a small number of classrooms before Christmas and then extend the roll out to all classes in the New Year. This roll out will be overseen by our ELearning team.
We had our first staff meeting of the year last week, and as part of the meeting I was asked to give a short, 30 minute, presentation on Edmodo and it’s practical use in the classroom. This was received very enthusiastically by all staff members and as a result we now have sixteen teachers signed up and planning to use Edmodo. This was a lot more than I had initially hoped for but think reflects the usefulness/ease of use of Edmodo as a teaching/learning tool.
From here we would wish to encourage those signed up teachers to move to using Edmodo in their daily practice. The first step of which will be sending home letters to inform parents in the participating classrooms of what we are doing. Our progress in this will be monitored by our ELearning team at our regular meetings.
