Communication and Collaboration Tools
What are they? And why should my child use them?
OneDrive is the place to go to store all your child's information. OneDrive makes it very easy to upload a file from your phone, tablet, or computer and share it with others. The best part about it is that you can store just about anything whether it is a PDF copy of your child's notes, an audio recording from your child's class, or a video your child made for a group project. OneDrive is free to use with a Microsoft account, but if you store a lot, you might have to upgrade and pay a small subscription free. Click here to go to OneDrive.
Twitter is an awesome way for you or your child to communicate with his or her classmates and teachers. Users tweet out messages that can be seen by others. There's two simple ways to get your message to people: 1) Use a hashtag that others can search, or 2) Tag someone in a message. So next time your child doesn't remember what his homework is or wants to find out if anybody would want to study with him, go to Twitter! You can make a Twitter account here.
