Edmodo Transforming A Bilingual Classroom
I will show how Edmodo has completely transformed my 3rd grade bilingual classroom into a digital classroom. I am a 2nd-3rd grade bilingual looping teacher who has been a member of Edmodo for almost 4 years now. My students will be using the Edmodo apps this year to integrate digital content in all subject areas particularly in math and create videos using GoAnimate as well. With their new upgrade this fall, I hope to be able to utilize all the new features it has to offer to teachers and or administrators along with the online quiz feature as well. Digital citizenship plays a key role in mobile device learning and Edmodo is a great tool to teach bilingual students what that means in todays digital world.
