EDMODO at Hull Middle School for Ms.

Salomons Students
http://www.edmodo.com Sign up code: xy239bcs (valid until 3/14)


Dear Parents and Students,

This year we will be using EDMODO in Ms. Salomons classes. Edmodo is a free and
secure learning network for teachers, students and schools. It provides a save way for us to
connect, share content, access homework, participate in discussions, and receive class
information.
Unlike social networking sites such as FaceBook or Twitter, EDMODO is a tool strictly for
educational purposes. There is no private student-to-student messaging and the site is to be
used for school related content only.

Student Expectations:
1. EDMODO is intended for educationally enriching purposes only. Any inappropriate
content will be deleted.
2. Assignments can be posted by the teacher, and students have the ability to submit work
to the teacher through EDMODO.
3. The guidelines set by the GCPS district-wide acceptable use policy regarding educational
technology will be expected to be followed by the students, as well as the teacher.
4. Students are encouraged to post interesting findings, questions, etc. to the group, use
the site to check on work missed when absent, ask questions about assignments, and
respond to the teachers postings, each others postings, etc.
5. Students must return the bottom of this form signed by a parent or guardian (on both
sides) before being allowed to continue using their teachers EDMODO group(s) after
their introductory lesson.
6. Students and parents must also sign the agreement on the reverse side of this page to
acknowledge the class guidelines for posting in Edmodo.

Cut at the line and return the bottom portion to Ms. Salomon:

Student Guidelines for Posting in Edmodo

2. Posts must be related to teacher prompt. No random or greeting comments.
3. Add to the conversation. Compliment another student in a specific way, ask a question or add new
information.
4. If youre not sure if a word is okay, then it probably isnt.
5. Post a note to the whole group if your question is about something the whole group should know.

Conventions
1. Always use correct spelling, punctuation and grammar. (NO SLANG or Text-type)

3. Avoid texting shortcuts like u for you.
4. Use full sentences.

Tone
1. Be polite, friendly, and encouraging.
2. Respect other opinions. If you disagree use sentence starters such as, I respectfully disagree, you make a
good point but I think, I support... and give details or evidence for your position.
