Join us on Saturday, August 23rd, when our special guest will be Carlos Fernandez, creator/developer of a fantastic, free new backchannel tool for the classroom called 81DASH. Please join us to learn about 81DASH and the ways teachers are using it in their classrooms. We know you are going to be eager to start using it too! If you're already using it we hope you'll share your experiences either in the chat or on the microphone during the Q/A. Communication is vital in the 21st Century way of work and education is no exception. As the 81DASH team saw schools make the digital transitions, they knew that they needed to come up with a safe solution that would allow students access to communicate anytime, anywhere. But they also needed a solution that would keep students safe and give the teacher the opportunity to monitor and have full control of that chat environment. Although the chat feature is heart and soul of 81Dash, they believe that students need more than just a safe chat environment. They need a Dashboard that allows them to communicate, share files, take notes, and keep track of important tasks. 81Dash has been a tremendous passion project of theirs and is created by teachers for teachers. Follow 81DASH on Twitter and sign up on 81DASH
