    I had never heard of Edmodo before looking at the title of this webinar, so I truly feel like I have learned something new today. :-) I believe students learn better when they are interested in the topics they are studying. Promoting student interest is an excellent way to engage the students. Also, it keep teachers from falling into an educational rut. We all could stand to shake things up a bit. :-) Differentiating instruction will definitely keep students engaged. Thank you for a wonderful webinar full of insight for both the teacher and the student.

    Thank you for sharing Edmodo with us. It would be a big help once i start on integrating it in my lessons.

    Please keep on doing what you guys do. You make our lives and our student’s easier. Good job!

    This is a great way to engage my students and make them more of a partner in their learning instead just an audience. Thank you so much! I will be using Edmodo next year with my students!!!

    Thanks for all of the thoughtful comments and remember to share strategies right here in the Blog when you find ways to differentiate with BrainPOP.

    Brittany – So glad the webinar was thought provoking. Keep in touch as you make the small tests, we would love to hear about the journey you take to increase your student-centered activities. Glad to hear that both you and Sheridan will try out Edmodo and perhaps Edmodo with BrainPOP. Let us know how it goes!

    Jennifer – Thanks for your feedback about embedded videos. Currently you can only embed our free featured movie onto blogs or websites. Teachers can assign BrainPOP Topics in Edmodo, but your class or school would have to have the 24 hour student access subscription. There are many subscription options available too, if you want to check those out and share with your principal or school. Here is the link:

    This was a good overview on using these tools. I wonder if Brainpop will begin to allow a way to embed videos in edmodo without requiring login info, or rethink the standard subscription so that students can access these videos later. My students do not get home until 4:00 (or later if they have sports and activities) so they do not have much access from home.

    I loved learning about Edmodo today. I had never even heard of it before and can see so many uses for it in the classroom. I also love the use of it and BrainPop for differentiating instruction. It definitely makes effecient use of time too.

    After this webinar I am excited to begin using Edmodo in the classroom, particulalry for the potential to differentiate according to student interests. While I am not sure my school or district is ready for a “flipped classroom” yet, I like the idea of taking small steps towards that model. It really got me thinking about 21st century learning and trying to shift towards a more student-centered classroom.

    Thank you so much for this webinar! I loved how Paula included the students in her presentation. I enjoyed getting their input on using BrainPop and Edmodo. I also enjoyed learning about how to give assignments based on interest, and how to give students opportunities to improve their grades by doing a little more research and retaking the video quiz.
