How I Use It
I use this for just about everything! I keep a daily agenda slide show that is embedded in the class so students can see exactly what we did each day and the homework. I put all assignments on Schoology so that students can access directions and worksheets from home. I develop quizzes that students take on line and schoology transfers the scores directly to powerschool. I also put writing assignments on Schoology along with a rubric, students submit the assignment and I can grade it through schoology which pops the grade into my gradebook. Assigning Learning Targets to questions and rubrics has allowed me to show students what areas they have mastered and what they have not so that they can self monitor. I have been able to link many apps to this platform so that students can easily access content. I also use Schoology to email parents weekly about what is going on in class.
This is the best teaching tool I have ever used. It is one place for students and parents to access what is going on in class and makes tech integration seamless. Parents and students are thrilled to be able to easily find what they need and I honestly don't know how I ever lived without it!
