A super nice member!
I teach ages: 5 to 18
I’m a longtime teacher and instructional designer in the Metro Nashville Public Schools Learning technology Department. We are fully into our first year of implementation of Schoology.
Simply put, Schoology has an incredibly intuitive user interface and a remarkable adoption rate even without training/support. Our teachers are struggling less with learning what all the “buttons” do and how to navigate the system. We are seeing them use Schoology’s more advanced and impactful tools right out of the box. Schoology lets teachers focus on instructional planning and provides standards-based data for timely decision making. It also allows for quick and easy “personalization” by providing the ability to create grading groups and assign content individually. If you’ve never tried it, sign up for a free account and give it a go. If you’re a district selecting your next LMS be sure to include Schoology in your decision making process. Questions?

Schoology helps teachers provide more of what students need (content, resources, ability to engage in 4Cs, rich feedback on assignments and assessments) and helps them get more of what they need from students (progress on where they are achieving, communication, collaboration, etc).
Post-It-Plus is an extremely powerful and easy to use app that allows people to capture paper sticky notes and bring them into the digital world. By scanning you can add as many sticky notes to your digital board that you want. Once in the digital board, teachers and students can manipulate them in a variety of ways. The app has an array of built in sharing formats that allow you to share the board with another Post-It-Plus user for editing, send out a board as a pdf file, export into a PowerPoint, export as images, or send to an Excel file. While the app is free, there are some awesome paid add-ins like additional sticky colors, an eraser that lets you erase the original By creatively using this app, you can plan to get students thinking more critically about content.
