General
How I Use It
I am a student who is is in preliminary education classes and I would use this app to its fullest. I think that this would be a great way to stay connected with students outside of class and there is also a way to key parents into the mix. I love that you can add journals, activities and I can check it all from my app for instant review.
My Take
I found this app really easy to use and it offered a lot of helpful hints and tips when getting started. Technology can get the best of me and i felt like this app supplied easy directions and minimal set up time. I got to name my class and I could add links, photos, documents, and even activities to do in the app. I think this would be good for homework and extra credit opportunities. I love that the app includes parents which can keep a really good connection between students, parents, and me. You can also use this app in the classroom as a tool for answering questions and doing things individually and working as groups. I am really glad something like this exists in my time.
