Huge Halloween Dance at Haileybury Public School
Admission to the dance will be $5, but guests are asked to bring lots of money to spend. Proceeds from the events will be going towards the Grade 8 trip to Toronto in June.
Edmodo in class
Monday, September 21, 2011
Starting this year, the Grade 8 class has started using Edmodo, an internet-based social network designed for use in the classroom.
For those who are unfamiliar with Edmodo, it is a network in which students can submit assignments directly to the teacher or share ideas, links and videos with other students or their teacher.
One thing that is very interesting is a feature where students can post a comment directly to the teacher when he or she submits an assignment. The teacher can mark the assignment and give feedback to the student without ever printing.
Another thing that is very cool is a feature in which parents can go on the site and enter a code to access their child's grades to see how well they are doing on school work.
Students can upload photos to their profile or they can use a series of photos already supplied by Edmodo.
It seems that everyone in our class likes using Edmodo and I think that is a very efficient way to bring technology into the classroom and keep all assignments organized. Edmodo in the Class
