Toolset for Connecting with Students During Remote Learning
FreshGrade has launched FreshGrade Next, a learning network for the age of instant access, combining elements of lesson planners, portfolios, communication systems, and gradebooks into a seamless experience. Using the same technology as consumer social media, the platform gives administrators, teachers, students, and families access to a communication system that simplifies interaction and emphasizes engagement. Teachers can build lessons and add dynamic resources, curriculum standards and assessments—no matter where they or their students are. They can make learning visible with diverse media, personalization, and tagging and filtering. And they can guide student growth with standard or score-based evaluations connected to curriculum standards. Signup is free.
When I was in fifth grade, I remember my teacher showing us pictures from his summer European travels. It was amazing to me to see such incredible structures like the Eiffel Tower and the Roman Colosseum. Our teacher did a wonderful job of sharing what these locations were like but I remember wishing I was there.
Each month we publish blogs and several newsletters full of digital learning, funding, professional growth, social media, and STEM resources. Below are items from our blogs and newsletters that educators turned to the most in February.
