This term in Year 2 we have begun to use Edmodo to share ideas. The children are MASSIVELY excited!!
The pilot has coincided with our Junk Modelling project. As a result, the students have a whole class group to contribute ideas, and a smaller group within that where the children have space to share ideas that are just relevant to their project. They will be creating a TV and radio advert as well as a poster advert for their model.
The opportunity to share online resources and ideas not just at school but also at home has really inspired them. Hopefully this will result in some fantastic audio-visual work to go with their creative skills.
In addition, we are piloting a scheme where parents are invited to follow what the children are doing via Edmodo, which I can add to on a daily basis.
Watch this space!!
