|upload 1 photo at a time||upload multiple photos at once|
|Gradebook and portfolio looks different on all devices||Gradebook and portfolio look the same on all devices|
|Announcements go to the whole class||Announcements can be customized, can be used like email. (i.e. you can email 4 students through fresh grade next rather than the whole class)|
- Important to educate parents!
– When they post a comment, only the teacher can see it, not all the other parents
– Privacy concerns – when you download a class photo from fresh grade you cant post on social media
– When first starting, just use for communication and announcements
– Focus on 1 subject
-Photograph groups and tag students
When you “share as a highlight” – this notifies parents to look at your post
-When you email FreshGrade with a concern, make sure you email them with your school district email so they will reply to you ASAP.
