Student Success with Unified Technology

“Our biggest goal that excites us is to be able to work with a company that clearly shares that same goal,” says Austin Miller-Siple, the district’s Director of Technology. “PowerSchool Unified Classroom is built around student learning. There’s a clear understanding when you get into Unified Classroom and start to delve in deeper into assessment, into the learning page, into the gradebook, that there’s a lot of focus and time spent understanding student learning, how students learn, and how they’re going to interact with the software.”

Microsoft Buys Video-Discussion Platform Flipgrid

A video-discussion platform originally started by a University of Minnesota professor to keep in touch with students for a course he was teaching has been purchased by tech giant Microsoft.

The tool, called Flipgrid, is based on a simple idea—that people on a team (or in a class) might want to share short videos within their group but not with the whole internet. You’d think that could be done with YouTube or Vimeo but, at least today, those platforms don’t make it easy to share a video with a small group of users while keeping everyone else out. So that’s basically all Flipgrid does. And it has grown quickly in K-12 and higher education—its leaders say it has 20 million users and has been used in more than 50,000 classrooms.
