One of my awesome coworkers went to a conference recently and brought back information about a cool new edtech platform called cel.ly. It is a secure way for teachers, students, parents, and other education professionals to communicate via the web, text message, or the celly app.
I'm just beginning to think of all the ways this platform could be used to harness the power of "student device love" to enhance my instruction. Below is an introduction to this cool new tool. including a couple of ways I was able to use it in my classroom.
- For students using text instead of the app, standard text rates apply so students need to work responsibly
- The platform is free for the basic options, but it is $5/mo for teachers who wish to have more advanced assessment
What do you think? Could you use this in your classroom and if so how?
