Step 1 Step 1: Go to www.edmodo.com www.edmodo.com Step 2 Step 2: Select I’m a student on the edmodo homepage under the sign up section.
Step 3 Step 3: Enter the school code so you can be added to an IUSD edmodo account. Your school code is: m77xd9 Step 4: Enter a username and password Email is optional, but nice if you’d like to receive notifications when students post. Title, first and last name are required. Step 5: Step 5: Click Sign Up!
Step 5 Step 5: Now you should see the groups and communities you are a part of on the left menu bar. You can edit your account with a picture if you like under Profile on the top right. Step 6 Step 6: Select Join or Create on the left if you would like to create a group for your class. Just like you did with Blackboard. For example: English/Language Arts 7. Step 7: Step 7: You will see a collection of posts from fellow SV teachers, students, and any connections to other people you have on your wall.
Step 8 Step 8: To create a group for your class, select Create Group on the left. Step 9: Step 9: Develop a group name, set the grade level and subject area, and click create. If you want to set it so that every post is approved by you first, select Advanced Options and click the appropriation setting.
Step 10 Step 10: Now you will see a group code on the upper left hand part of your profile. This code is what you give to your students to allow them access to the group. Every code is different, please don’t use the code on this training. Step 11: Step 11: Students can also give this code to their parents so they can access the account.
Here is where you will see notifications about a post a student made either direct to your group page, or in reply to another student. To change notifications and how you receive them go to Account Settings at the top right. The library automatically collects all of your uploaded documents, videos, or PowerPoint's. This would be the “Course Documents” of edmodo. Once in the library you can create folders to organize your documents, and can sort by either uploading them to posts, or straight to the library. Here you can organize what you see on your wall. By clicking on what posts you see, it will organize and limit your view. This is helpful if you want to see what your students have posted directly to you, or overall. This helps to monitor what they write if you didn’t select at the beginning to limit student posts.
To write a reminder like you would have an announcement on Blackboard, click note to post. You can also attach a file, link, or link to something already in the library. Select who to send it to if you have separate groups. You can also send it to parents, once they sign up. To only upload an assignment, click assignment and load it. You can set the due date here, and it will save in the calendar. To have students take a quiz on here you can create one. When I started my edmodo group, I had the students take a poll if they liked edmodo better than Blackbaord. It does a live update as students answer, showing a bar graph for the answers.
The calendar feature is great for planning ahead and helping your students stay organized. Just double click into the date, enter the information, and choose the group to notify.
