Last night’s system upgrade included a few new exciting features including:

    • Student profiles: Get more insight into each of your students through new student profiles! Students profiles allow you to view that student’s teachers, groups, classmates and recent activity.  This information is automatically generated based on their Edmodo activity, but the student can also share a little bit about themselves by selecting their learning style and career goal.  The ability to select a favorite quote is on the way!
    • Badges: The new student profiles also include badges.  These new badges enable you to incentivize your students and provide recognition for their achievements. To award a badge, visit the profile of the student you’d like to award and select the “award badge” button at the top of their profile page. A panel will open up that will allow you to create a badge, or select from a list of Edmodo created badges.
    • Assignment Filtering: New filtering will help you and your students organize and find assignments.  Simply filter your post by assignments (from the left navigation) and you will then see the ability to sort by those that are “coming due”, or “most recently posted” at the top of your stream.

    I just checked out the new features. Can’t wait for school to start so my students can add to their profiles. I think the badges will be a great hit.

    is there any way to post-date an assignment and have it ‘pop-up’ on the set date?

    I am even more excited to start using Edmodo with badges!  Now we can finally reward students more simply!  

    Would be interesting to have an option to announce the badge group-wide or at least as a notification to the student!

    Is there a way to add badges to multiple students? I have 300 students and I would love to give a badge to more than one student at a time.

    Love the badges, but would like to be able to award them to my faculty members for PLC/PLN time. I created a badge, but do not see where I can award them to the members on their profile pages. Can this be done?

    So I went to fill out my student profile and there’s something I’m really disappointed about. You give people the option to add their future career, but I know that mine isn’t included. So either a new method of adding careers needs to be used, or you need to expand your range of careers.

    Is there a way to pick custom quotes? None of the examples are ones I like. My quote would be: “I wouldn’t say I’m an evil genius…I’m not sure I’m evil, and I’m not sure I’m a genius.” Adam Savage.

    LOVE the website and think its awesome!!!!!!!

  26. Elle Moore says:

    Please add this quote options so I can complete my profile:

    “Simple can be harder than complex.” Steve Jobs

    Why can’t we type in our own quote??? Quotes are very personal, and I don’t want to select one you hare already provided.
