Projects

I’m working on...

Sodalitious

My Teaching & Learning Portal (formerly BaltimoreTeacher.com)

A database driven, responsive website that is intended for all student devices. Currently working to fold together a customized Leaning Management System (curriculum + assessment + student page with grades/feedback and projects).

Mobilitious

A simpler student interface for teaching and learning: giving students tools for learning and ways that they cn connect and collaborate with each other.

Similar in scope to "Edmodo"— the difference? I can tinker more with it and have more control over delivering widgets to students that I customize, including robust feedback and grading. Standards based.
