Edmodo is becoming a powerful tool used by teachers for teacher-student and student-student collaboration. Volusia teachers and district departments also use Edmodo to engage in Professional Learning Networks with teachers in-district and internationally.

Best Practices

For a complete description of Security Best Practices, please click here.

  • Always login to Volusia's subdomain: http://www.volusia.edmodo.com 
    (do NOT login to http://www.Edmodo.com
    )

  • Never post group codes publicly.

  • Lock group codes after all students have joined.

  • Monitor student posts. Use the “read-only” features, as needed.

  • Set expectations.

  •  As with any classroom management, working with students to develop clear expectations for the use of Edmodo and reinforcing how to appropriately communicate in an educational setting online is important.

  • Each school should designate at least one (we recommend two) Edmodo School Contacts.

Edmodo School Contacts:

  • Manage all teacher and student members in your school (for example, reset passwords)
  • View your school’s analytics
  • Remove teachers from sub-domain (delete accounts)
  • View Message Streams – view any member’s message stream by clicking on their name in the list
  • Train and share best practices with faculty
  • Ensure students have the appropriate Volusia County Electronic Use Policy signed and on-file at your school. Parents should also be informed and consent to their student’s use of Edmodo.

If your Edmodo School Contact changes at any time throughout the year, please submit a Tech Services ticket with your new Edmodo School Contact information by emailing the name of your Edmodo Contact to HelpDesk@volusia.k12.fl.us
