Measuring the impact of poverty in education

Measuring the impact of poverty in education | EdTech_Gal | Scoop.it

Social justice outside of education typically incorporates public views on inequalities in housing, income, and criminal justice administration.

Finding the right parent-teacher communication app for your class

Finding the right parent-teacher communication app for your class | EdTech_Gal | Scoop.it

A recent study by Gallup found only 1 in 5 parents are fully engaged with their child’s school, meaning 80 percent of parents are either indifferent to or actively disengaged from their kids’ school. There's an app for that - but which one?

K_Lynam's insight:

I'm a fan of using Edmodo for P12 - it's a self-contained all-in-one platform to engage students, parents and provide educators a professional learning community.

But from the list of apps discussed here, REMIND is an easy choice - simple, safe and appropriate for all levels, P20+.
