Hour of Code

We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. hour-of-code-logoBut only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and less students are studying it than a decade ago.

That’s why our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 7-13). More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code. Our Hour of Code is a statement that Telluride Intermediate School is ready to teach these foundational 21st century skills.

Schoology & Notability

Greetings!

TIS (and TMHS) is converting to Schoology Enterprise this year. This means that all classes and students will be pre-populated in the Schoology platform and be synced with PowerTeacher. schoology_thumbnailStudents will now have one place to go see all their classes, teachers, assignments and calendars making it easy to communicate about all classroom and school related activities. This will also be a place for parents to easily keep track of student progress and communicate directly with you.
SvsGCSchoology knocks the socks off of Google Classroom (click on image on left). It will be a great tool for enabling building wide collaboration and supporting student-teacher-parent communications. The best part of all of this is while PowerTeacher is still the place to post report card grades, you can now create assignments in Schoology and sync those assignments directly with the PowerTeacher gradebook. During In-Service, we go over in detail how to make the best use of Schoology and its features.

Also, we’ve purchased Notability (replacing uPad) for students and staff. This will enable students to easily annotate and share PDF’s and much more. There will be more information shared during in-service.
