Tech Talk Tuesdays: Social networking made easy with Edmodo

When: Tuesday, May 8th 4-5pm (Melbourne time, Australia gmt+10)

About the session: We’ve all heard the statistics, and rightly or wrongly Facebook and other sites are playing a major part in the day to day lives of our
students. For most schools concerns about safety mean that Facebook and the like is just too great a risk. Enter Edmodo, a social networking developed by teachers with education in mind. Simple to use, because access is controlled by group codes generated by the teacher, it is very safe. In this “Hands-on” session with John Pearce, participants will engage in a virtual exploration of Edmodo getting a feel for the ever expanding features provided within Edmodo.

About our presenter: John Pearce is an educational consultant based in Portarlington, Victoria, Australia. He previously taught in a number of primary schools and has won several awards for his work in the classroom. He has also presented at a number of conferences, statewide and nationally and internationally.

    Hi Anne,
    I am learning from your posts and wanted to thank you for sharing. I am a 52 year old teacher librarian in School District 60 (Peace River North, B.C. Canada). I have taught for 23 years and presently work at a K-12 rural school with 330 students (Prespatou Elementary Secondary School). I am going to try to join this session tomorrow night (It starts at 11;00 pm my time and I am usually in bed by 10 pm)! I have never done anything like this before but I have read the information attached title for first time users of the blackboard platform and apparently my computer should be able to support the program so I am hoping I am good to go!!! Thanks again. Donna Ritchie
