With your interest in Technology, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service. Here’s a public class recording you might find of interest.
Hello Karen, the software tool that you are working on looks really interesting. I know I will certainly be going in to check it out later on today. I love the idea of it being useful for parents as well.
I'm passionate about eliminating busy work so teachers and parents can get on to the more important things. VolunteerSpot does just that. It automates scheduling, signups and reminders, makes clipboard signup sheets obsolete, and helps teachers and parent helpers get to bed on time. Doing Good just got easier!
