Edmodo Turns Five!
Posted by: Lucia Giacomantonio
Today marks Edmodo’s fifth anniversary and we are excited share this special occasion with over 23,000,000 Edmodians around the world.
When we first launched Edmodo five years ago, all we had was an idea and a dream. Looking back, it is incredible to see how far we have come. We saw how teachers were frustrated when they found themselves surrounded by digital content, but lacked the tools to share it within their classrooms. Five years later, thanks to you – our teachers – Edmodo’s dreams are coming true.
You are in every U.S state, teach at 180,000 schools around the world, and come from 190 different countries. Your continuous insightful feedback and unending passion to collaborate and educate has helped make Edmodo what it is today.
We asked you to tell us how Edmodo has transformed your classrooms and we were overwhelmed by your responses:
“I did not grade a single printed paper last year!!!! Students submitted essays in Edmodo, peer edited and revised in Edmodo, and I graded and annotated in Edmodo. Saving the planet, one tree at a time.” Teacher from Lafayette
“Edmodo has completely change the way I run my classroom. Before I was the sage on the stage. Now the learning is placed in my students hands. Edmodo has opened up new worlds of learning for myself and my students!” Middle School Teacher from Richmond, Georgia
“I had a very quiet student. We used Edmodo as a ‘backchannel’ while viewing the crucible play. He connected a song he loved to a character in the play and was so excited. He couldn’t contain himself and kept commenting and connecting the rest of the play. It was a good day to be a teacher!” – High School English Teacher from Coatesville, PA
Stories like these fuel our passion for connecting learners with the people and resources they need to reach their full potential. But Edmodo is so much more than a platform, to our educators, Edmodo means so many things:
We are so happy to celebrate this milestone with you today. As you continue to collaborate, communicate and engage with your students and colleagues through Edmodo, we will continue to design, develop, and innovate to provide for you the powerful and time-saving tools that you need. Thank you for all your love and support throughout the years. Here is to many more years of learning together!
