This Year’s Edmodie Award Winners Are…
Posted by: Lucia Giacomantonio
This year at EdmodoCon, we introduced our inaugural awards program – The Edmodies.
The Edmodie Awards recognize educators from around the globe who are using Edmodo in extraordinary ways to enhance their classroom and to create amazing learning experiences for their students.
We launched the program with three award categories:
Edmodian of the Year – Awarded to an educator that is using Edmodo and all of its features, in powerful ways, with both students and other educators.
District of the Year – Honors a district that is actively using Edmodo across all of its schools, in various ways. This means not only teachers and students are actively engaged, but other faculty and staff are also involved.
Edmodo App of the Year – Recognizes an Edmodo App that teachers and students have adopted because of the quality of the app, beautiful design, and great integration with Edmodo.
2013 Award Winners
Please join us in congratulating this year’s winners:
Edmodian of the Year – Kelley Taylor, Christ the King School, Lexington, Kentucky
Kelley is a 6th grade Language Arts teacher. In the 2011-2012 school year, she piloted a 1:1 classroom using netbooks. The program was so successful that it led to the implementation of a 1:1 iPad program across the entire middle school for 2012-2013. She now teaches in a classroom that is completely paperless, utilizing groups, assignments, quizzes, and more.
Edmodo is used as the primary tool for blended learning at CCPS. Edmodo has been widely adopted for course creation, curriculum sharing, communication, and professional development. The district is made up of 62 schools with 4,200 teachers and 60,000 students. 98% of their teachers and students are actively using Edmodo!
This app enables you to create your own stack of flash cards and to share them with your friends and classmates. It allows kids to help each other study for tests and learn new concepts. Easy image uploading makes this app work for any subject, and cool graphics make flash cards fun again. Learn More.
Again, we want to congratulate this year’s inaugural winners of the Edmodies. Stay tuned for more details about next year’s Edmodies.
