Technology integration in our classrooms is supported by our Technology Coaches at the Elementary and Intermediate buildings, while our Director and Integration Coordinator provides integration support at our Middle and High schools. We work to prepare staff and students through a multi-tiered approach involving in-person professional development, asynchronous online training resources, and in-class co-teaching opportunities.
In the classroom, integration is driven by a few primary systems. Instructional materials and communication are driven primarily through Schoology, our district's Learning Management System (LMS). Each child's course schedule is imported directly into Schoology, where teachers are able to post assignments, deliver assessments, and guide student learning, both within the school building and outside of the school day. Students also have individual accounts through Microsoft 365, Microsoft's online productivity platform. Among other items, Microsoft 365 provides students with access to online versions of Microsoft's traditional Word, PowerPoint, and Excel productivity suite. Microsoft 365 also provides students with 1 TB of online, cloud-based storage through OneDrive for business. Saving and working within Microsoft 365 allows our students to transition seamlessly between home and school, as well as between different devices, including laptops, Chromebooks, and mobile devices.
In all of our efforts, we work to support students and staff in cultivating a creative, collaborative, and meaningful educational experience for all members of Granville Schools.
