Mrs. Mixon and I are excited to start using Schoology with the 7th graders! Towards the end of next week, your child will be creating a Schoology account. This account with enable us to facilitate online discussions relating to what is occurring in the classroom.
Students will learn the importance of Digital Citizenship before we begin our use of Schoology. Our goal is that students learn respectful, responsible, and safe skills while using online discussion boards! Then, seventh graders will learn how to write a “substantive response” to the discussion questions posted on Schoology. This will enable students to collaborate and “keep the discussion going”, rather than cutting a discussion short due to a response like, “That’s cool! I agree!”
Please let me know if you have any questions about Schoology!
