The SOMS library Edmodo group has become so much more than just a place to talk about books and get questions about school work answered. It has become a place where students showcase their talents. Talents I never know they had. Last year my students took it upon themselves to celebrate poetry month, by writing the most amazing poems on the libraries Edmodo page. This year one of my students William posted this question to me in the library group.
I just loved the idea!
So then William decided to crowdsource his drawing ideas via Edmodo.
And that is how he got his idea for his first drawing the 50 Foot Duck which you can see above. He did another drawing yesterday of a Mutant Cyborg Potato and will do more drawing each day next week. He asked if he could take the weekends off and I said it was fine :-)
I asked him how he came up with the idea to do this and this is his response which I just love!
This ability for him to be able to share his absolutely amazing drawing would be not have been made possible with Edmodo!
I can't wait to see what he makes next!
