Edmodo 4 – The Negatives?

So I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t give a run-down of the negative aspects of Edmodo.

1) It’s pretty easy to crack into  –  so with large groups – safety can be compromised. Should get parental permission (but you knew that)

2(ish) Kids can chat without teacher supervision

3… no… that’s it… that’s all I got. So if you can use Edmodo and you deem it safe, you’ve done all your checks, got all the permission slips back… go for it… it’s incredible…as this teacher says in an *ahem* well-written and thought-provoking post on Edmodos own blog – it really is a wonderful tool for engagement!

and can I just say that this anonymous post has a wonderful style and tone to it… it makes me feel that the author is a really cool guy (or girl – sorry) just trying hard to reach their students on an appropriate and engaging level without ruffling any feathers… good luck to him (or her) ;-)

All the best, Mr F

 

That’s it… It’s awesome – if you can use it – use it!
