Website / Moodle Update
Prepare for Open House and the rest of your school year. Update your website's schedules, syllabi and class policies, or revamp your site completely with a new theme and layout.  Refresh your Moodle course by removing students and their records, and updating or creating groups for the new year.  In a just few minutes, you can be ready to go!
September 8-10
Infinite Campus Messenger
The IC Messenger tools allow teachers to communicate with students and/or student guardians.  Send a message to the whole class, send a missing assignment message or a grade message.  No groups to create, just click and send.

September 15-17
Create Your Own Google Classroom
Google Classroom is now available at District 219. Classroom is a platform that allows you to easily share and manage announcements and assignments with your students. If you’ve been frustrated with sharing, organizing and grading student work with Google Docs, Classroom could be a game changer!

The Pluses of Google+.   What is it, and why do I need it?

Google+ is social networking for Google. It integrates with other Google Apps, but also offers some unique tools, like:  Hangouts, video conferencing, Circles, contact groups of people like Classes, Colleagues, Friends, and Communities, topics-based groups. Communities consist of people with similar interests and provide great resources and PLN opportunities.  Join us and find out what all the Plus is about.
