Students and Parents Debrief on Their First Social Media Summer Program

One of the ideas that came up was utilizing a free web tool called Edmodo to keep students engaged virtually over the summer. Edmodo looks a lot like Facebook, but it is designed specifically for schools and doesn’t require students to be 13 in order to access its controlled virtual learning environment. After discussing a vision for summer use with some parents, we decided to go for it and drafted a letter home.

Below is a window into our planning 1) before the students went home, 2) the actual Edmodo summer topics we proposed, and 3) feedback from a cross section of the 117 participating students and their parents.
