#EdTech Thought

Time for New Tools

Google Classroom is coming but it’s coming in September. That doesn’t make much sense. I believe Google should be releasing this potential game changer in the world of LMS’s NOW. Teachers need time to play with new tools and work out the kinks and bugs. I don’t know many teachers who could just say on the first day of school, “I feel like starting to use a new LMS with my students this year, I will start now…”
