Successful Methods of Implementation:

Assignments are best executed by using the “Group Access” functionality within PLT4M, which allows students to see all 12 assignments at all times within their accounts. Then, as the teacher, you can alert them to which assignment is meant to be completed on any given day. They can then complete the assignment and answer questions by way of the App (via our note functionality), or your own LMS.
