Duration: 20 mins
Positive experiences reported by teachers and students utilizing Edmodo, a social networking tool, suggests that similar results may be possible in organizing a high school service club. A web-based instructional module was created to show club advisers how to use basic Edmodo features to organize students and groups, foster and increase communication between students, and increase student participation in activities. The instructional module, which included a series of instructional online videos, and a set of fifteen pre-test and post-test questions, was tested by graduate students enrolled in the University of Hawaii at Manoa Educational Technology program. The effectiveness of the module, areas for improvement, and suggestions for future implementation are discussed.
