Using Technology in Class: Engaging Parents with Tech2016 | Admin | February 8, 2016 at 8:44 pm
One of our amazing schools, Jefferson Middle School, has a story to tell. We caught up with Darlene Pope, teacher and GEAR UP Leadership Team Member, who shared with us the technology she uses in her class to support her students and stay in touch with families. Zoom video conferencing is free up to 40 minutes. I meet every Wed evening in a virtual online face to face session with students and parents for an hour. Remind is awesome. It is how I communicate with parents and students. This is how I alert parents their student has missed an assignment and how I send homework tasks to my classes. I can also text with students about homework. It is a free and digitally safe texting tool. I can even attach documents, www.remind.com. Read the whole story on the blog!
