Hello Parents! I wanted to give you some information regarding the use of Schoology in my classroom. First, it is a great way for students to stay connected to the learning that occurs in the classroom. It expands the walls of the classroom allowing for interaction between students and teachers, and allows more flexibility for assignments, both in the type of assignments and when they are completed. As a parent, you have the ability to create your own account in Schoology. If you have more than one child, you still only need one account - you can link your children with the associated codes. The benefit of having an account is that you can see upcoming events in the classroom and see what your child is doing in the program. Since this is being used in my classroom, this is where I will maintain upcoming events, homework, etc. Please consider creating an account!
I do link the updates I create in Schoology to a Twitter account, follow @dmoyscience to receive them! If you download the app, you may even get push notifications when I post things (this would be based on the notifications that you choose to receive in your account settings). I have links below that you may find useful.
You will need a code to associate your account with your student, so please email me if you need me to provide you with the code. I also believe that you can get the code from your students account.
If you have any questions, or to receive the parent code, please email me. Please include your name, your student's name, and what period they have my class (makes searching the codes faster).
