I believe Edmodo is fantastic for our students and teachers. Edmodo allows our students to access information 24/7. Our teachers have taken to it and put up blogs, tests, quizzes, PowerPoint presentations, etc…One of our teachers is even using it in a flipped classroom scenario to give more time for labs and other hands-on activities. - Jeremy Way, Principal at Warrenton High School
Edmodo has been an excellent on-line classroom management tool for our students. They [students] are able to access information that they would have only had access to during the school hours of 7:45 – 2:35. Edmodo has expanded the learning opportunities for our students to give them opportunity to learn from each other anytime they want. -Dr. Gregg Klinginsmith, Assistant Superintendent, Warrenton School District
