I introduced the flipped classroom model to the 7th graders today and modeled how to create an Edmodo account. They seemed to be all for it, especially when I mentioned the lack of “workbook page” homework.
I asked them to create their account by Monday morning. As of 8pm tonight over 50% of my class had set up their accounts :). I even received a few nice messages thanking me for setting up the “cool website”. One student said, “This is sooooo awesome! I love it!”.
This is my first time flipping with Edmodo and I’m happy to hear that the kids are really into it.
This week I am going to give the students a few fun videos to watch and comment on so that they get a feel for the site and how it works. On Monday we will dive into new content and I will assign our first content-related video.
Our Back to School Night is on Monday, and I’m wondering what kind of feedback I’m going to get from the parents considering I’m the first person to do this at our school.
I’ll report back on how that goes 🙂
