Edcanvas + Edmodo = Better Learning
We have brought the fun and ease of Edcanvas to Edmodo! What’s a better way to introduce the free app than a guest blog from a fellow Edmodo Ambassador, Kristina Holzweiss:
Are you looking for a website where your students can organize their research and annotate websites without an email?
Do you need to create a hotlist for your students so you can minimize search time to provide more time to read and analyze?
Would you like to manage all of your students’ projects onto one location so that you can easily access and view their work?
I can’t believe that Edcanvas does all of this for free!
My students have used Edcanvas to organize research for their National History Day projects, collect favorite cupcake recipes, and organize their favorite athletes. It’s so fun, easy, and visually-appealing that your students will actually forget that they are learning. As a school library media specialist, I have used Edcanvas in conjunction with other web tools to help science teachers create an online unit about endangered animals. Late one night, a colleague sent me an email that she was having problems with organizing links about the periodic table on another site. It was an emergency since she team taught with a science teacher who was home because his wife had just delivered a baby. My colleague sent me the sites and I added some of my own to create a hotlist on the periodic table so easy for his substitute teacher to navigate.
I have been an Edcanvas addict since I first learned about this web tool on Edmodo. The Edcanvas app on Edmodo will make a simple solution even easier for teachers and students to understand and use. I only wish I had this tool when I was a kid!
