Most lessons are organized into a "playlist" (we use LessonPaths). When students need a refresher on what we covered in class, they can navigate through the steps to locate the one they wish to review. We like this software as a learning tool because it helps students find exactly what they need without having to dig through a long narrative.
THE ANNEX@ is a simple blog. We use Blogger because it is part of the Google for Education Suite. It is easy to access. There is no sign on process so students, teachers, instructional aides, parents, and member of the New Canaan community and folks beyond can all access what we teach. We deeply value that transparency.
Posting to LessonPaths is great for students, but clunky for us. What is coming next
