Schoology is a great tool for spreading learning beyond the classroom! While schools are able to purchase use of Schoology to integrate with their grading/attendance/etc programs, it is also completely FREE for teachers (and also FREE for students) who do not have that option! https://www.schoology.com/home.php
What is so special about Schoology?
- It looks just like Facebook (and operates similarly too)
- Students receive a "newsfeed" with highlights from courses on Schoology
- Dynamic Discussions, Posts, etc.
- The ability to "like" items or share comments
- Mass announcements
