So what is Blended Learning vs. Schoology?
Blended learning is a combination of face-to-face and online learning. The face-to-face time happens in class where students have direct access to the teacher. The online learning can be done at school or at home. Blended learning lessons contain three parts: in-person learning, online learning, and independent study time, which can all be combined differently. Obviously in-person learning needs to happen during school hours, but the online learning could be a video to watch for homework, a lesson prepared by the teacher, use of online sources at school, some type of digital curriculum, or assignments and discussions on [Schoology].Kristen Cole
Think of it this way… Blended learning is the instructional delivery method and Schoology is the platform.
Creating i-Ready Annotations
Follow along as Jimmy Stewart, TIS, demonstrates how to annotate PDF documents from the i-Ready Teacher Toolbox. This technique also applies to annotating PDF documents in general.
Sharing PDF documents via Schoology gives you a powerful tool to allow students to markup and/or add text to a document and then return it to you… Great for ‘yellow’ learn-at-home days.
