Transfer Existing Course Materials To Home Resources

Happy last week of school everyone! By now many of you have added a large chunk of materials to your Schoology courses. To ensure that you have that content readily available for your students next year, you will want to transfer this year's content to your Schoology Resources. This may sound complicated, but it couldn't be easier! Please watch the video below that walks you through the process.

SchoolSpace Go Bye Bye

RIP SchoolSpace
It's been real, it's been fun, but it hasn't been real fun. As everyone is already aware, SchoolSpace is nearly at its end of life. On June 30th Technology will be pulling the plug on SchoolSpace. Your SchoolSpace content has already been moved to a Schoology Group. Once you join this group you will be able to move that content into your Schoology Resources. However, some of you may want to download the content from your SchoolSpace courses to an external hard drive for safe keeping. Below is a video explaining that process.

Schoology Letter To Parents - Schoology Account Creation
Parents & Guardians now have access to view their child's progress in Schoology. This should be a great one-stop shop for parents, bringing all the digital elements of their child's education into one location. It is important to note, however, that we are still telling parents that PowerSchool will continue to be the grade book of record. The expectation is that whenever parents check grades they should refer to PowerSchool NOT Schoology.  Below is the letter that will be sent home to the Holman parents at some point this week. It explains the process of setting up a Schoology account and accessing your course content.

Scavenger Hunt Using A Schoology Media Album!

Yesterday during Holman's Staff Development day teachers had the opportunity to experience how to collaborate and share information using a Schoology media album. Teachers were dispersed throughout the Holman district and tasked with caputing evidence using their smart phone camera based on a list of HMS community criteria. Once evidence was gathered, teachers uploaded their photos to their Spirit Team Color's  Media Album in Schoology. Needless to say, the media album is a great way to share experiences with all group members regardless of location. It also created excitement and dialogue among the teachers as to how they might incorporate this feature into their classroom! If you are a member of the Holman Community Group in Schoology you can view all of the photos by clicking here.

Uploading an Image to A Schoology Media Album
Staff members will be participating in a scavenger hunt during next week's staff development day.

Below are the directions explaining how you take a photo housed on your phone and upload it to a specific album in Schoology using the mobile app. Click here to view the instructions explaining how to download and install the Schoology app to your smartphone or tablet.
