ABOUT THIS CLASS: This class uses a very deep amount of technology. We will have entire classes dedicated as technology tutorials, so everyone can learn how to use these tools. We use iPads, chrome books, film making, video making, and bring your own device. This class requires out of the box thinking and I want to hear what you have to say, so speak up. We will use a combination of EDLIO, SCHOOLOGY and GOOGLE CLASSROOM for all HW, Tests/Quizzes and assignment postings-SO YOU MUST CHECK YOUR EMAIL EVERYDAY. Powerschool is only used for your grades and attendance.
EDLIO-where your HW and daily work will be posted. GOOGLE CLASSROOM-where you will upload digital assignments, and take your digital Tests/Quizzes. SCHOOLOGY-where other assignments will be posted. You will need to sign up and/or be enrolled in ALL of these platforms.
