How I Use It
I use this as my text book. I use this for blogging & peer review. I use this for short & long term assignments. StudySync is my go-to for nearly all my classroom lessons & assignments. You can use the lessons created by StudySync, you can adapt them, or you can bring in your own unique lessons & texts. I can not speak this program's praises highly enough. My one & only critique is that there is not a way to deliver any multiple choice questions. You can use them, and have students respond in a writing prompt, but then you have to hand score each answer. This is really the only thing missing!
My Take
My classroom has been changed for the better because of StudySync! This is my classroom textbook. I love how students are able to review peers work, while being anonymous. I am able to grade assignments within the program, and give annotated feedback on their written work. So valuable to have all of the students work online in one place. Students love the "Blast" assignments, which are short "tweet like" responses to high interest non-fiction reading prompts. My students love the videos included in the premium lessons, and they will watch them over & over to gain further understanding of a topic.
