Edmodo also has a new feature called Snapshot it allows teachers to assess the students on common core standards.

Edmodo makes it easier for teachers to grade students work all in one place there is no need for teachers to carry around tons of work. Edmodo also allows students and parents to share thoughts and interact with teacher through conversation. Teachers can add videos to show examples and tutorials if students need guidance.

CONNECTIVISM
AND

SOCIAL CONSTRUCTIVISM

Because the whole class is placed online, it is easy for students and teachers to connect with one another.




Teachers can post a discussion topic towards a group and here students can learn and interact about that topic. Thus, incorporating it into Social Constructivism and Connectivism.

Adding comments to these posts is a great way for students to learn from one another. They always say, "Two minds are better than one," so here there are plenty that they can take information from each other and help better comprehend the material.

Teachers and students can use the web to share links, videos, which allows to better educate the topic being shared among the class.

The use of the Internet allows users on Edmodo to upload recent current events to help stay updated and connect with one another.
The purpose of Edmodo is to build a learning environment online. Social Constructivism stresses the significance of interacting with others that way it can help he or she expand their knowledge and help them learn the new material. The goal for Connectivism is to encourage the use of technology and networks in order to better educate an individual. Therefore, the features on Edmodo falls into both of these learning theories because students and teachers are interacting online and keeping one another updated with the use of this social network.
Edmodo is typically known as the "Facebook" for schools. While the outside of each page looks similar to "Facebook," there is even more to see within that teachers and students can utilize.
