MassONE is a set of web-based tools for communication, collaboration, and curriculum planning, which are designed to support PreK-12 standards-based teaching and learning. One valuable function of MassONE is the Virtual Hard Drive, where users can upload their documents and files and then access the same documents and files from any computer connected to the Internet. There is also a drop-box for students to submit work to their teachers, as well as a forum area and survey tool. All Waltham teachers, administrators, middle and high school students have access to MassONE at http://massone.mass.edu. Teachers and administrators should have a MassONE account; new teachers and administrators should contact Sandra Roby or their building-based Instructional Technology Specialist to be registered for MassONE.
SchoolTube - a website for K-12 schools that blocks out inappropriate content through an innovative Chain of Accountability process. Videos and pictures are student produced and moderator approved, thus producing a pure and refreshing site that is appropriate for school use. Library Teachers and Instructional technology Specialists are set-up as moderators for their school. Additional teachers can also be added as moderators.
