RECORD KEEPING: Here’s an idea! For those of you who keep records of what you are learning – these ClickSchooling reviews can be very helpful. Since they are dated and divided into subject content, simply print out the reviews of the sites you actually explore and put them in your student’s portfolio for easy-peasy record keeping. :)
