How I Use It
I have been a user of Schoology for some time now and have used the LMS with students in 3-8 to run my computer technology classes as well as many after school clubs and activities. As a staff development specialist, I facilitate online professional development for educators using Schoology, and use Schoology Groups to have the teachers in my region share ideas and resources with one another. I set up my online classes for my adult learners very much like I did when I was in the classroom. Not only is it a great resource to share classroom materials and communication- but an amazing online tool that makes differentiation and blended learning a breeze!
From my experience as an admin of Schoology, teacher, staff development specialist, and student (yes! We used Schoology in my grad classes), I feel that this is an easy application once you get to know the product and learn all of its features. Students have an easy time navigating, submitting assignments and discussions with Schoology. Parents also appreciate the ability to stay informed.
