How I Use It
I use Schoology to organize all of my resources and assignments. I can enter grades that are linked to the tests, assignments, and discussions. I sometimes have issues with the gradebook sync, but in general, it is a great tool that keeps our students and teachers all on the same track.
This depends on how well the teacher is willing to use it as a teaching tool. I've seen some teachers use it as a bare, minimum file storage system. Others will create activities that take students through different learning tasks based on their level of mastery and skill. There are opportunities for students with slower learning paces to gain access to more supportive resources.
