Recently I posted about Google Sheets and how awesome the query function is. I thought it was so cool that I would make a little video about how to do it, in case my instructions were not super clear.

Edmodo Guide Version 3.1
If you’ve been thinking about trying out Edmodo now is the time and to help you out I’ve updated and embedded my guide below. Edmodo is a great way to increase the communication in the class, help students organize and to build a stronger learning community. It’s free, powerful and if you’re on the fence I urge to try it out.
Here is another update to my guide for Edmodo. When I started this guide it was only 9 pages long and now here it is 36 pages later. This guide covers everything from signing yourself up to managing grades and everything in between. Feel free to download, print and distribute the guide however you want.
Enjoy and happy Edmodoying (that’s not a word)
