Tech: Sesame IO

 

So far this week we have focused on Technology that makes it easier for teachers to remember and save their various digital files.  Today we will be discussing Sesame IO which is a fantastic Unit/Lesson Planning Software that allows a great deal of flexibility, creativity and connectivity.

It may be a little difficult to understand the concept before you see it for yourself, so we are going to start with the official introduction video. This video is a bit fast, but don’t worry, we will be breaking it down.

So there you have it, a robust online system to help you keep track of absolutely everything.  Sesame IO has the potential to become your calendar, planner, assessment binder/folder, student progress log, curriculum checklist and MUCH MORE!
