BFA High School students and teachers are using the district’s new learning management system, Schoology, to access the resources they need for learning inside and outside the school walls.
Students in all classes are accessing their daily agendas for each class. They can post comments to the their teacher or their classmates.
Students can take quizzes through the Schoology site. This practice provides instant feedback for both the student and teacher.
“It’s great to watch the students make progress through the quiz. It takes some time upfront to set the quiz up, but the grading portion is so much easier” – Tom Pfeiffer, Science Teacher
Students have access to all of the resources for a unit (websites, additional readings, assignments) that their teachers have uploaded to Schoology. There’s no more searching through the backpack for an assignment. Open the Schoology app and the student’s classes are literally a click away.
Schoology allows a student who is absent to make up the quiz, or see what happened in class. We are just beginning to realize the power that Schoology brings to our students. As the year progresses, students will be able to access their grades through Schoology. It will be a “one stop shop” for all of their BFA educational needs.
Parents (at all schools across FWSU) can also have access to the same information through their parent access code. If you need assistance accessing your student’s Schoology account, please contact the school.
Target 3 – Flexible Learning Environments. FWSU will maximize flexible learning environments by redefining the school day, promoting learning experiences that extend beyond the school classroom, and fostering creativity, innovation, and differentiated learning opportunities for all.
Action Step –Provide students with access to content, resources, and methods for learning beyond the school day and beyond the school walls.
Indicator of Success – Staff, students, and community embrace the digital, social, mobile, and “always on” learning styles of 21st Century Students.
