Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Love this site. If you try it and like it please don't forget to help foot the bill. Classjump isn't overly sleek but I can connect with my students here in a great way and it is very easy to use. Students and parents are informed the site is learning and club supplement only. All formal issues having to do with grades or problems go through the official school sites and procedures and are not dealt with on this class web page I set up with classjump.com.
I can print off any inappropriate entries submitted (which has never happened so far) and report it to administrators just as I can in my classroom. I inform the students and parents through "must sign as read" printouts of conduct requirements and use of the class web page. I can also ban inappropriate users from making entries. The WEB page is solely to connect online learning experiences and class related online discussions within class to an extended online learning format and provide makeup info for those out sick or need a review and for those that wish to learn more on their own. I think public writing challenges all of us, including me to improve writing and proofing skills. No one wants to look bad in front of others if they can avoid it. We have never had anyone make fun of weak writing skills displayed from each other. I think we all know we could be the next one to "mess up"' our written statement and understand we are there to share our thoughts, work, enjoy connections and support but mainly seek to encourage and understand each other while we learn.
My students have indicated they would like to be able to comment on each other’s art work, upload their work from their own devices and interact about their work on this site. So far students can only personally send/upload me a document or photo to review and the other students cannot view or comment on what they send to me. With appropriate etiquette and criticism training it would be great if the students could comment on the work documents summited when fellow students seek input. I can post these as photos and use the class message boards for comments. It would be good to be able to post a pic of their art work to the message board so that students wishing input on their work could request it there directly. Only I can post the photos on the photo albums. Students cannot upload images of their artwork from their devices.
I use the site also to connect my students with enrichment material and hope to back up my own classroom instruction there and on JUNO/Jupitergrades.com as well with video and printouts of my core instruction. I find myself repeating the same thing over and over to those that miss class or just don't pay attention. I’m sure hearing all this repeated in the background isn’t fun for those that listened the first time and have to hear it continually restated for those that couldn’t or didn’t listen. I intend to give them a link to replay very soon. It will take some time to get all my key content uploaded. My only regret is that all this wasn't available years ago when I would have looked better on videos.
