Week 14- Learning about LMS
This week we were out of school for Veteran's day on Tuesday. Wednesday and Thursday I was at Central Office for meetings. I was selected to be a member of a team to review Learning Management Systems. We had several different presenters come and share about their LMS and explain how to use it.
There were 2 that stood out above the rest. We are considering using the paid version but there is a free version for both of them. I have to say that these are both similar to Edmodo but with many more features on the paid version. I'm not sure how the free versions compare but I think these two are worth a look if you are thinking about using a LMS.
I really like Schoology best but they are both very comparable.
I also learned how to give a quiz to my students using Google Forms combined with Flubaroo. The best part is that you can make it self grading. Woo hoo! I'm excited to share this with teachers who are looking at using BYOT or 1:1.
So this week was all about what the teacher learned. :)
STUDENTS: Do you like taking your tests and quizzes digitally or would you rather do paper/pencil only? Why? Give evidence to support your choice.
