Positives and Negatives of LMS

We are always looking for new ways to assess students needs, while also increasing the efficiency at which we operate as teachers.

One of the ways I am able to do this is using an LMS or Learning Management System. In my podcast I discuss the main reasons I use one for all my classes.  I also discuss the potential issue you my face.

Why I use a Learning Management System

I have used a learning management system (or LMS) since I began my career as a full-time teacher.  In fact, I used the computer for most elements of my classroom: Sharing assignments, bell ringers, formative assessments and so on.

Over the last couple years, I have changed my thought process on that matter. A paradigm shift if you will…I no longer use technology for all things teaching.

However, I continue to build my classes with my LMS because it is easy to use and makes for a more efficient classroom environment.
