ENG 3U 2012: Day 1

Today, I will introduce you to an educational social media tool called Edmodo. Edmodo will provide us with the platform that we will use throughout the semester to discuss key ideas, maintain timelines, and complete a great deal of our work. http://www.edmodo.com/

Why are we using Edmodo?

  • Similar tool are used at Universities throughout North America, including Stanford and Harvard. The Ontario government  is currently considering a significant overall of its university system; potential changes include a move to platforms like Edmodo.
  • The US government estimates that, by the time your generation finishes school, 80% of jobs will require the kind of skills Edmodo will help you develop.
  • You can use Edmodo anywhere. There are Edmodo apps on both the iOS and Android platforms.
