How I Use It
Use it to post assignments and quizzes as well as polling students on a variety of things throughout the school year. Able to assess and post grades as well as have whole group or individual communication online both in and out of the classroom. I found it to be very valuable when I was out sick as I could simply post an activity for the students and my substitute would just need to monitor students and answer any questions. Worth the investment of the initial data entry.
My Take
Interface is similar to Facebook so most students are able to catch on quickly. It is more of a controlled environment as the teacher must moderate all comments and communication between individuals and the whole class. Possibilities are endless.
