About this session: Private social networking sites are fast becoming an everyday part of the curriculum at schools across the globe. Can these technologies be meaningful in the early and middle years of school? One school is making sure the classroom is always open, even when the students are at home. This session will introduce Edmodo, a safe social network for students and teachers to conduct formal and informal communication, sharing of ideas, reminders and inquiry projects. Edmodo is forever changing and this session will peruse the new aspects and discuss how you could tailor it to a particular age group.

Participants will then be taken on a hands-on exploration of Edmodo including how to embed content, set assignments and quizzes, create polls and work collaboratively.

This session is great for the teacher that works in a school where digital technology is slow to get off the ground and has little take up across the staff; the busy teacher that wants to ‘try things out’ but doesn’t know how to in the busy weekly timetable. This session will also include a ‘hands on’ section where participants can join an edmodo group and actually experience how it works.

About our Presenter: Rick Kayler-Thomson is a primary teacher in Geelong, Victoria, Australia with his feet firmly planted in ICT
