Edmodo has recently launched some exciting new features on their platform which have made the facilitation of online courses better than ever! In addition, the integration between Edmodo and the Google Suite has gotten pretty slick (with more exciting improvements to come)!
In tandem with these releases, Edmodo will be partnering with MisterEdTech to promote an interactive online course titled, “Using Edmodo and Google to Facilitate 21st Century Learning”. The course will begin March 20, 2017, will last eight weeks, and will cost $129 per participant. Everyone is welcome to participate in the course, and 20 clock hour credits will be offered through ESD 171 for Washington State teachers for a cost of $40 extra to be paid directly to the ESD. Participants will be asked to spend 2.5 hours per week engaging in the course and will learn the baseline technological knowledge needed to integrate Edmodo and Google Apps. The course will also focus on best practice and will ask teachers to be reflective about their pedagogical applications of these tools.
If you are interested in the course, create an Edmodo account if you don’t have one already. You will find the sign-up page for the course and more details here on Edmodo Spotlight! You can also check out the course syllabus here and/or send Randy an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions! Here’s a bit more information as well:
