<div>While it is lovely my district has access to such great technology, we have no vision for it. All of these tools and resources are handed to us with no training, no long term plan in place. We wind up spending all this money on technology that is really ineffective.</div>
<div><span style="font-size:16px;">This is the most amazing resource my district provides, which I didn't appreciate until I saw all the other tools other teachers use which is all encompassed in Jupiter. It is a gradebook, assessment platform, essay writing/feedback, parent/student communication, discussion forum, all rolled into one. I'm sure this is other stuff it does I am not familiar with!</span></div><div><br></div> jupitered.com Learning Management System, Gradebook, Learning Analytics, and Student Information System for K-12 and higher ed. Jupiter Ed is used for 3.9 million students in all 50 states.
<div>Our district recently adopted a new curriculum. We purchased StudySync. So far, we have had no training, although we are expected to implement this year. We also will still be using our old, outdated novels, making a large part of this useless. </div>
<div>Last year our school purchased one Chromebook cart per grade level. I was lucky enough to host one, and I used it basically everyday. The district recently committed to going one-to-one, so that is coming down the pipeline.</div>
<div>I have only recently begun using GAFE in the classroom. Mostly Google Docs, where I have students read and annotate collaboratively. I also have them keep a Google Docs notebook. So far the response has been positive.</div>
