Google Classroom for Monroe
Edmodo for ICS
Monroe Teachers use a resource called Google Classroom to provide class information to students and parents. The Google Classroom app is pre-loaded on each student iPad. At the beginning of each semester, teachers will provide your student with an enrollment code that will grant access to course information and assignments on Google Classroom.
Edmodo is a social learning network and secure message platform where teachers and students can interact and collaborate online. It has an interface similar to Facebook, however it is much more secure since it is a closed network (Students CANNOT communicate outside of their class!). Both teachers and students can share notes, links, files and resources with each other.
In addition to this, teachers have the ability to post alerts, assignments, grades, reminders, conduct a poll and share events. Students have the ability to participate in online discussions on the message board, submit homework, view grades, and communicate with their teacher. Also, transmission is fast, and it saves paper.
