Create lessons in minutes with Blendspace

Why I use Blendspace

I love working with Blendspace, bacause I can create a lesson in a couple of minutes. I share this lesson via Edmodo to my students. I create an assignment with a link to this blendspace lesson and I am done!

Best of all: I can see who watched a video and for how long they did that. The students can also respond, so I can start a discussion in my real life lesson.

What is Blendspace

Blendspace, formerly known as Edcanvas, is a visual learning platform for teachers and students to organize educational materials. It features grid-like “canvases,” much like Pinterest’s boards, that allow users to curate digital content such as videos, images, links and other files. Built-in search tools allow users to quickly and easily embed content from Google, YouTube, Flickr, Dropbox or a user’s desktop. The addition of an Edmodo app in Blendspace has allowed for easier sharing of a user’s canvas on an Edmodo profile.

Explain Everything & Google Drive Part 1: Sharing a Google Folder With a Class

This is why you should use Edmodo in your classroom

Why should you use Edmodo in your class?

Edmodo can be incorporated into classrooms through a variety of applications including Reading, Assignments, and Paper-studying. Current uses include posting assignments, creating polls for student responses, embedding video clips, create learning groups, post a quiz for students to take, and create a calendar of events and assignments. Students can also turn in assignments or upload assignments for their teachers to view and grade. Teachers can annotate the assignments directly in Edmodo to provide instant feedback.

It provides a secure environment

http://trendytechtipsbd.blogspot.com/2012/07/edmodo.htmlThe classrooms are completely teacher controlled, which means teachers can manage student passwords, delete inappropriate posts from students, or even make the class read-only. In addition, students cannot message each other privately, and all student posts are visible by teachers and parents. You can post text, polls, videos, links, quizzes and assignments all directly through Edmodo. It has a calendar feature so students can keep track of due dates and major events. It has a digital backpack for unlimited storage of files, documents, photos, etc. Seriously, you can do SO much!

Connect your classroom

The most exciting thing I find about using Edmodo is its potential to connect my classes with others from both within my country and with those overseas. I have participated in global classroom groups with classes and teachers from the U.S., China, Vietnam and New Zealand.  We have used small groups for different activities (polls and discussion, cultural Q&As), and within these groups, we share and comment as an authentic audience. Edmodo has really broken down the global wall for my small, rural school, and allowed my students a real connection with other cultures and other schools.

Differentiation

I make a lot of use of small groups in my private classes to differentiate projects and activities for my students. We are able to give each other positive feedback and criticism as well. Edmodo has been invaluable in promoting digital citizenship for my students, and an awareness of appropriate, but exciting, online participation.

Quizzes

Naturally, the quiz and assignment features, the backpack, and the ability to showcase student work for all the class to see are wonderful features of Edmodo, too. I love how groups can be archived and work brought out for later perusal if necessary, how students can have quick access to work I post from home, and how they can participate while out of class.
