Digitize and Assess Student Work with ThreeRing

Digitize and Assess Student Work with ThreeRing | Montessori & Technology | Scoop.it

This is an app for the iPhone or Android, but I am posting it here in my "Montessori & Technology" Scoop.it page because this fits with a concept shared with me by a Montessori teacher who is seeking digital tools that will support and enhance the process of monitoring student work throughout the learning process.  This isn't a complete solution for that teacher's need, but it is a step in that direction... -- SDS

What do Maria Montessori and Steve Jobs have in common? - Eagle Harbour News

"Although nothing can replace the authenticity of actual physical materials or social interactions that children have in a dynamic Montessori classroom virtual manipulatives may extend learning beyond the classroom.
