So, it's Saturday and I'm just now getting around to posting this week's Friday Freebies. What can I say? It has been one of those weeks...one of those months. My apologies.
Anyway, I wanted to take the time this week to blog about making part of your classrooms and class procedures digital. There are several ways to do this, but I have found that students really appreciate it. They talk about how much they like being able to find and post assignments online. If they lose something or are absent, they are able to find out what they missed/need without hassle.
Edmodo is a website teachers and students can join for free. Teachers are able to post readings and assignments online. Students are able to create accounts and submit work. It is a great way for students to keep track of their assignments. If they lose handouts or forget what the homework is, they can look it up. It is easy to navigate and provides students with the practice they need to help them navigate the requirements of online courses.
