The Teachers Role and Responsibilities


Instructional Technology is excited about the use of Edmodo throughout the school district. We continue to encourage the use of Web 2.0 tools effectively and appropriately accross the district. For many of our students (13 and younger) it is IMPERATIVE that parent/student consent forms be signed to stay in compliance with CIPA and COPPA. Web 2.0 tools are an important part of 21st Century Learning Skills but as educators we need to continually keep the best interests of our students in mind.
