    What about Edmodo for Creative Arts or Health and PE?

    • Hi Tony – The new user group topics are determined by our support ambassadors. While we may not have a Creative Arts or Health/PE category this semester, it’s possible that someone will begin one another semester.

  2. Sandy Maye says:

    Hi! I am a Music Teacher (K-9) – feel free to join the Elementary Group – and I will do my best to help guide you. BTW – I have a Smart Board – typo I guess! :)

    • Sandy Maye says:

      Also, please note that these groups have temporary membership (by semester with rolling membership), and are meant to simply guide new users to what is available in Edmodo. There are groups to join specifically for subject areas such as Music/Band/Chorus/Drama and so much more. I am always willing to help in any way that I can.

There ARE many, many active teacher groups in Edmodo that are specific to countries outside of the US and their Curriculum, etc. Again, the groups advertised right here is meant to assist new teachers in finding those groups and other helpful areas of Edmodo.

    I am a parent and I would like to learn more about it I have a daughter in the Sixth grade and one in the 1st. and both along with my wife are new to it we would like to get more familiar with it so I will know how to assist my kids. Any Suggestions. I signed up for a webinar on the ninth hopefully that’s a start.

    • Eric – I recommend you sign up for one of our Intro to Edmodo webinars at https://edmodointro.eventbrite.com/

    • Sandy Maye says:

      Hi Eric!

      Are your children using Edmodo at school? The groups that students join are lead by their teacher(s). If your children are IN an Edmodo group, you can join as a parent. The code you need is in your child’s account, and is specific only to that one child. You will need the code to create an account. Both parents can join – just be sure to use different email addresses and your student’s code if you want to have separate access. Please keep in mind that you will have limited access – you will not see other students in the class – that is of course part of confidentiality and security. Best of luck – and glad to have your support!

    Thanks Will Do

    Hi! I am in high school and have been on Edmodo for two years now. I just want to leave a recommendation for Edmodo. I think that they should add in teacher emails so that way you are able to get in contact with your teachers more easily. Especially for new users.
