Last week on Free Technology for Teachers I wrote a list of 15 things teachers and students can do with Edmodo. One of the items on that list was “access Edmodo through the free Android and iPhone apps.”
The Edmodo Android app allows you to manage the essential aspects of your Edmodo account. The app gives you access to your gradebook, groups, profile, and file library. You can use the app to post new messages to your group(s). My file library was accessible through the app and I was able to add new content to my file library. Students can use the Edmodo Android app to read notifications from their teachers.
The only problem I ran into with the Edmodo Android app was not being able to add new content to my gradebook. However, I was able to open and view my gradebook. I’m not sure if that’s a problem with the app or with something I was doing wrong.Â
If you’re using Edmodo with your students, consider asking your students to install the free app on their Android devices.Â
