Storage in the Cloud

Cloud storage is an awesome option for students and teachers who don't have enough storage space on their laptops or mobile devices. Cloud storage services will allow you to access all your files anywhere (desktop, phones, laptops, or tablet), share files with your colleagues, and organize them in folders or albums. Additionally, if your computer ever crashes or gets destroyed, you will still have access to your files on your different cloud storage services. 

This week we will focus on the following cloud services: Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, YouTube, Flickr, and ODrive. 

Coming Soon:  Packing your Digital Suitcase.  (For folks leaving KIS this year)  Here is the link to last year's presentation.

Schoology Updated

Schoology Updated

Schoology receives hundreds of requests at any given time for new features and for improvements to their Learning Management System (LMS). 

One way that you can expand your knowledge and understanding of all the features of Schoology, is to explore the Help Centre. It's here too that you can 'Submit a Request', or Vote Up a request someone else has made. It all helps provide feedback to Schoology so that they can improve. 

This session brings to foreground some of the recent changes and improvements to Schoology since our last PD session. Information sourced for this PD is in fact borrowed largely from the Help Centre.

Follow the Schoology blog for all the latest Schoology information and updates.
