If anyone is interested in using CLASSCRAFT with their class for your behavior management this year please let me know. I'm an ambassador and can get you 2 free months of the premium version for you to try it out. I highly recommend it. If you don't know what it is, check it out at classcraft.com

Just got the following info via email:

Smore Classrooms! Coming this September!

We designed Classrooms to ensure that the Smore experience is hassle free for educators and their students. With Classrooms, educators will manage the wonderful flyers that their students create from a simple dashboard. Each student will have access to their own Student Dashboard and the ability to create unlimited flyers without the need to provide an email address to log in. And to top it off, Student's accounts are enhanced with extra privacy measures so that their flyers are only accessible to them and their teacher.

More information about the ins and outs of this new feature are coming your way!

Do you agree with the predictions in the article? How do you think education will evolve?
People have spent their entire lives trying to predict the future. We admire those that can accurately anticipate what’s around the bend, though I’m fairly sure there’s many more predications that fall flat and simply fade into the background. So, by talking about the future of education, I know I’m going out on a limb. There’s a good — perhaps substantial — chance that I end up totally wrong. And so be it. I’m not going to say these things wi...
