Edmodo in the classroom

Christie DeCarolis HS History teacher in NJ

I teach high school world history and I've been looking into using Edmodo with my classes this year. My students had a lot of fun with glogster last year and I want to incorporate more ongoing technology.

I'm interested in how teachers have used Edmodo and what their successes/problems were with it. What kind of assignments did you use Edmodo for? Were there any problems that you encountered unexpectedly?
