I follow Teacher Tipster on facebook. He has a post today on his dollar tree finds. He has some amazing videos on his youtube channel that makes things easier for you. I wonder if some of our middle school students could do some of these things and then go down to the elementary school and pair with some students. Would teach them and reinforce their skills too. Most of his ideas are probably for elementary. But love his energy. Some of the ideas can be used for middle school. One of his videos talks about Jinga sightwords. We have a Middle School Science teacher that has numbered the blocks and then the kids pull a card according to that number I think. I will have to ask her how she uses it, and post later. I am excited to watch more of this guys stuff. One of my goals last year was to bring back some of my elementary roots into the middle school classroom, with middle school content. And his website at TeacherTipster. Wonder if he is on twitter, need to check that next.
So so excited that edmodo came out with an app, not just a web version app... Our school uses iPads on a cart, not 1 to 1 devices. So having an app that has different users and profiles quickly.
We started using the feature of adding documents using share in another app. The steps to save a document to your edmodo library..
1. Log into edmodo
2. Click home button on the iDevice
3. Open the app you are going to upload from (I am using Pages)
4. Open a document
4. Click the wrench in the top right corner
5. Choose Share and Print
6. Choose Open in Another App
7. Choose how you are going to save the document (I choose Word)
8. Choose App
9. Choose Open in Edmodo (picture 2 above)
10. Choose an Action, Attach to Note, Attach to Assignment, Add to Library (picture 3 above)
I am so excited about this change and the app has not crashed on me doing this process, which was a common things for us on the web app on the iPad
I know the look is a little different and it will take a little getting use to, and if you have to you could just use safari to log in to get the no app view if you need to..
