In weeks 4 and 5, during our senior lunch hour, we (the team of 20 Year 7 student tech leaders) visited the Year 6 unit to give students a taster of Edmodo, the Senior School’s social learning network. The Technology for Learning teachers, assisted by the Head and Assistant Head of Year 7, Mr Edwards and Mrs Biddles, started by explaining how the platform is used in the Seniors, then walked the students through the signup process. Then we all helped the Juniors complete a scavenger hunt activity in which they needed to find found out for themselves how to use the key functions of Edmodo. We noticed that the Juniors couldn’t help but use text talk and emojis to begin with but they soon got into good habits! They were obviously right at home with this platform and were excited by it. This time next year some of them will be helping the next lot of Juniors use Edmodo!
