Edmodo is a great tool for privacy.  Read more here:


We want to help students learn to the best of their ability, and that means helping you bring them the best educational tools. We also know that you want to protect the privacy of your students, and so do we.

To help you navigate any student privacy-related questions that you may have, or that your school leaders or parents might have, we’ve put together aPrivacy Toolkit that outlines our policies and practices, answers commonly asked questions, and provides additional privacy-related resources.

We’re as focused as ever on keeping your students safe, so that you can focus on the most important job of all — teaching.

What’s New With Edmodo?

Posted: 23/09/2015 by broadyesl in edmodo
Hi Christel,

When students explain the whereabouts of a missing assignment, they can get quite creative. Now that Microsoft Office Online is integrated into Edmodo, you can make sure their imaginations are used to create great work instead.
With direct access (no extra accounts or permissions required) to Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, you and your students can upload, create, edit, and view all your files, all in one place. And with everything automatically saved to your individual accounts, the only thing that gets lost are those excuses.
Create Microsoft Files
To access these features click the red “Office Online” logo in your Apps Toolbar.
Want more support for all that you do every day? Get families involved in a few easy steps:
  • Connect with parents. As your students are getting to know you and each other, invite parents to see and support what’s going on in your classroom.
  • Send notes home. Post announcements, questions, permission slips, and more directly to all parents in your class.
  • Update families on student progress. Give parents a window into your classroom by posting class assignments and quizzes on Edmodo.

When you give parents insight into what you’re doing at school, you can make sure everything you teach today gets reinforced tonight.

Some Edmodo Pointers for Teachers and Professors

Posted: 19/08/2015 by broadyesl in edmodo

Hi Christel:

Still need to get your classroom in order, before that first bell rings? Let Edmodo give you a head start—no seating charts or school supplies required. All you have to do is:
  1. Start an online classroom. Build a blended learning environment in an instant and flip how students experience and interact with lessons (and each other).
  2. Set up an internet safety zone. Use Small Groups to give students a place to access Common Sense Media resources and develop digital citizenship skills.
  3. Moderate communication. Automatically build safety into every conversation by setting Members to read-only, or choosing to approve all their Posts and Replies.
  4. Post an introduction. Write a welcome Note and attach a short video or article for students to review when they visit your Edmodo Group for the first time.
  5. Invite your students to join. Help them get a head start, too, by sharing the Group Code and asking them to come onboard before the first day of school.

Repeat as often as you’d like, for every subject area or class period; there’s no limit to the number of Groups you can create on Edmodo.
