Online Assistant Helps Implement Technology in the Classroom
Group Fusion Classroom, from Centrifuge Solutions LLC, is an advanced platform that is easy to use and affordable for all schools. It gives teachers the ability to implement technology in the classroom and fully realize the power of the Internet in their curricula. This classroom Web site system also provides a powerful array of online tools that allow teachers to post announcements, maintain a calendar and collect homework assignments. In addition, instructors are given the capability to upload files, create additional Web pages, and communicate with students and parents via discussion boards.
Group Fusion Classroom greatly increases a student's ability to stay organized and informed, because every user is provided with a personal calendar that compiles all of his or her assignments from each class into a single view that can be accessed online or printed as a hard copy. Students can also download handouts, participate in online discussions, as well as view teacher-created Web pages and resources that are posted online. Subscriptions to Group Fusion Classroom (www.gfclassroom.com) start at $25 a teacher per semester; group discounts are available.
