9203_31904_3.png Traditional communication
Many teachers require students to complete projects throughout the semester/term/year. Students usually divide into groups- whether assigned or chosen - meet regularly, brainstorm ideas, manage tasks, collect information, compile the project, and present and showcase the project. Traditionally, these tasks are performed outside of class, with minimal teacher input until the final presentations.
9203_31904_3.pngFirstClass ED is a project management tool
FirstClass lets you create customized project areas that you have full control over.
You can choose your level of involvement in student projects. You can be totally involved in every step of the process, or step back and allow students to be more independent. Creating a project area centralizes the work so students can meet and perform all of their projects tasks in one location.
Simply create a project area in your class Projects area, add members, and the projects will appear in the relevant students' My Project areas.
