I invite you to join my Research Ready Edmodo group. Do you use a learning management system- Blackboard, Moodle, Schoology, Edmodo?
Are you on a fixed schedule? Are you on a flexible schedule? Is research important to you? If you answered yes to any of these questions, consider creating a course on the topic in your LMS. As part of a graduate school course, I created a group of resources for third through fifth grade students and teachers to help teach the research process. I plan to use it in collaborative lessons with teachers and in my own fixed schedule lessons.
Even though some of the resources are elementary specific, most of the resources apply to any grade level. Go to www.edmodo.com and join my group as a teacher with the code 5eadg5. I welcome your feedback and suggestions. While you are there, check out the Common Core aligned and ready made “snapshots” that Edmodo has created.
I encourage you to give it a try, because as a previous post mentioned, Edmodo will be used to house materials for our annual conference! Let’s share!
