Get to Know Schoolology...

  Schoolology is a website that combines a social networking page similar to facebook with useful tools for education that can be utilized by teachers. Teachers can post assignment which can be turned in and graded online, meaning students would not have to be in class to get their assignments done.  The site looks very similar to social networking sites students are already familiar with, so adjusting to using this site would be easy.  The site also allows for teachers to track attendence, manage grades, and be open to questions from students at any time.  The site can be made private to only class members if necessary, so security is not a concern.  With teachers looking for practical ways to incorporate technology into classrooms, this site could be a big help.  This video provides a good overlook of how this site could effectively used for students.
