No longer do teachers have to search notebooks, online file folders, video web apps or email attachments to continue the learning conversations. With gotLearning, they are all in one place!
Playing an ever important role in student learning, educational specialists can view and participate in student’s learning conversations and see the overall picture of the student’s learning journey. Now the special education, English Language Learning, instructional coaches etc. can follow specific students across all of their classes.
