I’ve been hearing refrains from Oliver Twist in the last week since I rolled out the usage of Edmodo with 3rd-5th grade students. “Please, sir, may I have some more?” Seriously. I received four messages in the last two days from students asking me to give them more assignments, and several have asked me in person. ((Here I was worried that I was asking too much of them!))
This tells me two things:
- Students love learning if it’s engaging and meaningful.
- Students are starving.
Do you have starving students? What are you going to do about it?
