Using the Google Assignment App in Schoology

With the way education has changed because of COVID 19, I wanted to make sure that I included a video on how to use the Google Assignment app inside of Schoology.

How to Create a Discussion in Schoology

Below you will find the video on how to create a Schoology discussion. I really like discussion because the students do not have to type up a response, they can give a video or audio response. You can also set it up so that students have to respond before seeing other students' responses.

How to Create an Assignment in Schoology

When I left the classroom 4.5 yrs ago, I became the IT trainer for the district I had taught in for 18 yrs. About a year later, my job morphed into what it is today, that of Ed Tech Coordinator. One of the aspects of my job is to train the teachers in my district on how to use Schoology. So instead of just sharing what I have learned with the teachers of my district, I decided to also share it with those that follow by blog.

Learning the Basics of Schoology

About the middle of March, my district closed down and the teachers in my district started teaching from home. Many had not used Schoology, our learning management system, with their students before this closure so I was tasked with getting our teachers up to speed. The first week, I trained over 700 teachers on the basics. As we know, everyone has different learning styles so I wanted to make sure to have videos that teachers could watch if they couldn't make my training or wanted to go back over what I had taught them.
