Memiary Tutorials and the Power of Edmodo

I have a teacher who needed a daily journaling program for his music students.  He wanted them to have a place to enter certain information on a daily basis about the music they heard that day in class.  Paperless was pat of the challenge.  We debated using google forms but I posted my question on edmodo and received a quick response from another teacher.  Memiary!
Here are the quick screencasts we made on using this tool.  As a teacher, I can track all my student's Memiarys and make sure they are up to date.  As a student I can see my whole calendar full of what I learned in music class during the year.

A great article to read if you are a teacher or administrator...
