Ms. Tjon, one of our TAG teachers here at Great Oaks, made great use of one of Round Rock's Learning Management Systems, Edmodo, during the recent testing cycle. Because she sometimes has limited time with her classes during the testing period, she set up Literature Circle groups within Edmodo that allowed her keep in touch academically with her students. Edmodo allows teachers to create student accounts, post and grade and comment on assignments. Teachers also moderate and participate in students' virtual conversations. On days when her students weren't in class, they would log in to their Edmodo accounts to read and submit work as well as converse with other classmates. Testing is over, but they continue to use the program because it's useful, fun and allows students to strengthen their technical skills as they apply acquire and apply other academic skills.
