Today I hosted the webinar “Introduction to Edmodo”. This is my third webinar for OCDE and I think I’m finally getting the hang of facilitating and moderating a webinar using WebEx.
What I like most about webinars though is meeting new teachers. Today’s webinar afforded me the opportunity have teachers create their Edmodo account, set up a group, join our Edmodo Webinar group, post a note, and participate in a poll. If you think about it, it was quite a bit to do within a 60 minute period! This was a participatory webinar. 😉
In fact, I was going through the presentation, demonstrating certain features of Edmodo, answering questions, etc. and then I looked at the clock. Holy smokes! Where does the time go?!?! I could have easily used an extra 10 minutes. Oh well. Next time.
Hopefully the teachers found this presentation informative. I spent additional time after the webinar talking with a couple of teachers about Edmodo and technology. I even sent out connection requests through Edmodo to the teachers who attended the webinar today. What makes us strong as teachers is our ability to connect with fellow educators. And Edmodo provides an avenue for just that.
