Create lessons in minutes with Blendspace

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.

Online boards to organize and share digital content; ability to create multimedia lesson plans


Google Apps marketplace

See Google Apps marketplace to use Blendspace: Google Apps Marketplace – Blendspace (formerly Edcanvas)


10 handy tips on how to use Blendspace (formely Edcanvas)

1. Collaborate with your colleagues on lessons using Edcanvas Premium (50% off until 8/31!).

2. Easily onboard and train new teachers using Edcanvas Free for Schools.

3. Have students introduce themselves to your class by creating “About Me” canvases.

4. Add the free or paid Edmodo app to easily share canvases to your Edmodo groups.

5. Create “Class Quilt” canvases by having every student collaborate on one canvas together on “What I Want to Learn This Year” (Edcanvas Premium needed).

6. Use built-in, auto-graded quizzes to see where your students are in the beginning of the year.

7. Flip your classroom and track how students are progressing on your lesson with lesson tracking.

8. Have students scan QR codes using their tablets to access canvases on their devices.

9. Add the free Edcanvas Chrome Webstore app for easy single-click sign on in Google Chrome.

10. Get inspired by what other teachers have created in the Gallery.

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

– youtube.com/user/Learning4Mastery?feature=watch

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.

Edmodo, wat het is en dat het werkt. « Droog’s leren delen

Wat is Edmodo?

“Where learning happens. Edmodo helps connect all learners withthe people and resources needed to reach their full potential.”

Dat is wat Edmodo zelf zegt. Hieronder volgt mijn versie, van wat het is en wat mijn ervaringen zijn.

Edmodo wordt wel de facebook van het onderwijs genoemd. En dat is het ook. Aan deze informatie heb je natuurlijk weinig als je niet bekend bent met facebook. Wat betekent dit dus?

Om je aan te melden bij Edmodo maak je een docent account aan en leerlingen melden zich aan via een leerling account. De bijbehorende rechten zijn verschillend. Ik heb mijn leerlingen meegenomen naar het computerlokaal en ze zich daar allemaal tegelijk laten aanmelden en hun profiel laten aanmaken. Ik heb de leerlingen verplicht hiervoor hun school emailadres te gebruiken. Dit doe ik overigens bij alle Web 2.0 tools die ik gebruik met mijn klassen en tijdens lessen. Het helpt een aantal praktische problemen voorkomen en zorgt er ook voor dat er op sociale media een scheiding tussen hun school en persoonlijke activiteiten aanwezig is. Nadat alle leerlingen een account bij Edmodo hadden aangemaakt heb ik ze de code gegeven om zich bij de juiste groep aan te melden. Zodra alle leerlingen dit hadden gedaan heb ik de groep vervolgens gesloten. Ik verplicht de leerlingen hun instellingen zo te zetten dat zij van wijzigingen in Edmodo via hun email op de hoogte worden gebracht. Niet alle leerlingen waarderen deze verplichting of controleren hun email voldoende vaak maar ik leg de verantwoording hiervoor heel duidelijk en bewust bij henzelf.

Wanneer je een account hebt aangemaakt als docent zie je de volgende statusbalk:

Image representing Edmodo as depicted in Crunc...

Er is een home button en dus pagina, waarop de tijdlijn met post en activiteiten is te te zien. Er is een kalender, waarop gebeurtenissen en opdrachten zijn te zien. Er is ‘progress’ pagina, waarop te zien welke opdrachten zijn ingeleverd en hoe deze zijn beoordeeld. Er is een bibliotheek, waarin alle documenten die door de docent geplaatst zijn binnen de groep zijn terug te vinden. Dan als laatste is er een apps button, waar apps te zien zijn die binnen Edmodo gebruikt kunnen worden. (Deze is op dit moment nog vrijwel leeg voor Nederlandse gebruikers, in verband met juridische afspraken die hierover moeten worden gemaakt, maar zou gevuld moeten gaan worden met allerlei  handige Web 2.0 tools.)

Edmodo werkt met posts ofwel nota’s, ofwel berichten, die gericht gestuurd kunnen worden aan alle groepen, één groep, een subgroep of een individuele leerling. De nota’s kunnen worden gebruikt om mededelingen van verschillende aard te doen. De keuze aan wie je het bericht richt is in de praktijk een hele fijne gebleken. Ik kan eenvoudig naar meerdere klassen tegelijk een mededeling doen of juist gericht een aantal leerlingen aanspreken zonder dat een gehele klas hiermee wordt geconfronteerd. Dit laatste maakt het mogelijk gedifferentieerd les te geven te geven op het niveau van groepen of zelfs individueel.

Edmodo werkt met waarschuwingen. Deze heb ik zelf nooit gebruikt maar kunnen gebruikt worden om leerlingen op hun gedrag en verantwoordelijkheden of achterstallig werk te wijzen. Belonen voor gedaan werk kan via badges die aan de leerlingen kunnen worden uitgedeeld en die op hun profiel verschijnen.

Edmodo werkt met opdrachten, die voorzien kunnen worden van een toelichting en een inleverdatum.

Edmodo werkt met polls, ofwel enquêtes, die online gezet kunnen worden. Dit kan handig zijn om de kennis te peilen, maar ook om de visies meningen van leerlingen te peilen.

Edmodo werkt met quizzes, ofwel toetsen, die afgenomen kunnen worden en beoordeeld binnen Edmodo. De beoordelingen worden automatisch verzameld en geanalyseerd en zijn per leerling terug te zien op de ‘progress’ pagina. Het voorbeeld hieronder komt uit een test binnen de onderwijsNL groep en dient slechts ter illustratie.

Edmodo werkt met mappen. Hierin kan eenvoudig lesmateriaal worden geplaatst en geordend. Leerlingen kunnen mappen gebruiken om hun eigen materialen te verzamelen zodat ze deze altijd bij de hand hebben
