The FWSU Teacher Evaluation Committee continued its work earlier today and, in the spirit of Digital Learning Day, reviewed a new technology now available to all educators in FWSU. ENA Live is an easy-to-use, cloud-based videoconferencing solution for schools and classrooms. What makes the technology so exciting is the ease of collaboration that it offers.

Panorama has been selected by the committee to develop and facilitate our teacher and parent feedback surveys which will be implemented next year. The data analytics that are compiled after the surveys will provide teachers with incredible amounts of information.
