FMYI for education

Did you know about how the education sector is using FMYI? From Michele Snyder, Science Curriculum and Instruction Advisor at the Arkansas Department of Education:

“Thank you so much for the opportunity to use FMYI to conduct a successful collaboration with Arkansas science teachers to create the Arkansas K-12 Science Standards for Grades K-8. The platform you provided allowed for the teachers to work in small teams to review drafts of the standards. This was a confidential place that allowed them to read, study the 4 versions, and make comments on changes for improvements. It also kept the control of the content to me which is important when working with 35 different individuals. This digital collaboration also allowed the teachers to stay in their classrooms. Thank you again and I look forward to continue working with you on FMYI.”
