So...I get it! @Edmodo is a great tool to use when teaching, but it can get frustrating when students are not handing in homework correctly. If student's don't hand it in correctly, it opens up three other programs on your computer and well to be honest wastes your time.
I just wanted to shoot out a quick message to show you how I have tried to combat this problem with my students. I create a "Note" on Edmodo with my rules and "Pin" it to the top of each class. If something is not done correctly I don't grade it, if it's late because of that, it's on the student.
Take, Modify, Share, Repeat!
Text from my NOTE:
1. Always turn in a piece of work as either a comment or a PDF. If you do not submit a PDF your work will NOT be graded. This also means that it will be considered LATE and it will be counted against your "Independent Learning" ESLR grade.
2. If you would like to RESUBMIT an assignment, that's fine, all you need to do is turn it in as a COMMENT under the same assignment. This seems basic, but many people forget to do this.
3. Questions about assignments are fine to ask me face to face, but if you don't write it down on the actual assignment I may not get to it. All assignments, comments and questions should be submitted on EDMODO, I will not accept emails.
4. If you have problems with your EDMODO account for ANYTHING, please come and talk to me. It DOES work, there might just be a small hiccup. If you can't upload an assignment at home, I get it, the internet is much better at the school so try there.
Thant's it for now, but if other things come up please make sure you check here and try and problem solve b4, going coming to me! (Brain, Browse, Buddy, Boss)
