Welcome to Student Information Systems Week! This week we are going to be hearing from experts on how to manage your student’s grades through the online programs many schools are now using. In my neck of the woods, everyone seems to be using Infinite Campus. Boy do I hear a lot about it in my neighborhood, on the street, and in my office. Some folks love this technological tool that allows parents and students to view teachers’ grade books in real time. Others feel that the technology is just another way for “helicopter parents” to keep tabs on their kids. I’m not sure where I stand at this point in the week, but I do know that I see a lot of conflict between parents and kids around Infinite Campus use.
Do you have an opinion about this technology? Are there ways to use it well? Poorly? I would love to hear your point of view!
