Tooele County School District is excited about launching a new teaching, learning and communication service called Edmodo. This free service provides teachers, parents and students a tool to communicate together in many of the same ways social media tools do but in a safer, more controlled environment. Edmodo’s feature rich tools allow classroom instruction to go beyond the four traditional walls of the classroom and extend to assist students through on-demand instruction (learning how and when they want). Teachers are in the process of setting up their classroom accounts and will soon be able to provide students with their logins. Parents, teachers, students and administrators can access and register for accounts at our launch page by clicking the link below:
Should a security certificate message pop up, please click continue to website to enter the Edmodo launch page. Enjoy the new, safe learning, teaching and communication tool.
