What the LMS?

First off...flirting in Middle School is SO HILARIOUS! I love being in the halls and noticing the love lashes!

But for real... every kid has a device, every teacher has a device and we are thinking of picking an LMS (Learning Management System). Two platforms are frequently used in our district: Edmodo and Schoology. Several teachers are holding out for Google Classroom  but after participating in Classroom (which is awesome) it’s not a true LMS and won’t be available until at least January for our district (since we have multiple domains). I suggest you pick an LMS NOW (before fall) and kick off your year with it.
