Penzu Classroom is wonderful new web 2.0 site that allows educators/students to create online journals and more. This is done in a safe environment where educators create a journal/class and then students join via unique code (similar to ClassDojo). Once a student has joined a class a educator can send assignments, instructions, comment on student's work, etc. This is a great way for educators to organize and track their students all in one place via the cloud.
Educators can use it for any type of writing assignments, rough drafts, and even use it to "flip" a lesson.
I highly recommend checking out Penzu Classroom by clicking here!!!
