By Dylan Peers McCoy
06/23/16 on Chalkbeat

Teachers in Indianapolis Public Schools use a motley collection of tools to track student grades, from paper notes to Excel spreadsheets. When it comes time to send home report cards, they have about a week to go through the tedious process of entering those grades into the school database.

“And of course, it’s really, really slow because everybody is trying to do it all at once,” said Laura Larimer, Chief Information Technology Officer for the district.

‘Student-Centered’ Approach Transforms High School

by Eleanor Chute

06/17/16 on EWA

For Nancy Barile, who teaches English at Revere High School, turning around a reluctant reader meant turning on her own TV.

The student wouldn’t read or do homework, Barile said, but he was “obsessed” with The Walking Dead and urged his teacher to watch the program. So Bartile, who has taught at Revere for 21 years, made a deal: She would watch the TV show if he would read.

by Joyce Russell

05/19/2016 on NWI

PORTAGE — Some students here will be able to lighten their loads if the proposal to move from textbooks to digital learning is approved.

The Portage Township School Board on Wednesday night held a discussion on the adoption of high school social studies and elementary through middle school math materials.

Superintendent Richard Weigel said, if approved at the board’s May 26 meeting, high school students will no longer be assigned textbooks. Instead, all of the materials used in and out of the classroom will be digital and accessible through iPads, computers and other electronic devices. The only textbooks would be a classroom set for back ups.

Column: Using technology to boost student engagement

By BARRY FISCHER, District 518

April 29, 2016 on Daily Globe

WORTHINGTON — In 2013, Gallup’s State of America’s Schools report stated that 55 percent of U.S. K-12 students are “engaged” in their education, 28 percent are not engaged and 17 percent are actively disengaged. Technology can be one of the keys to increasing engagement in our classrooms.

First of all, let’s set the record straight — technology in the hands of a student is not necessarily engaging. Handing a tablet to a student is not engaging. However, it is how we craft the learning experience with great lesson delivery and technology as a tool.

Wheaton College Overhauls Learning Management System with Schoology

Schoology is selected for learner-centric design, ability to support traditional and online teaching methods, and integration capabilities

WHEATON, Ill. – April 13, 2016 – Schoology, the education technology company that puts collaboration at the heart of the learning experience, today announced that Wheaton College has implemented Schoology as its new learning management system (LMS). The five-year contract makes Schoology available to more than 2,500 Wheaton College students and the institution’s academic, extracurricular and administrative branches. Click to Tweet.

Research from EDUCAUSE reports that while learning management systems are installed at nearly every college and university campus, only half of the professors use their LMSs. Reasons for lack of use include poor integration, difficult interfaces and the inability of many older LMSs to keep up with the sophisticated needs of traditional and online teaching methods. Furthermore according to the research, very few professors use their existing LMSs to engage with students outside of the classroom.

Wheaton College stated that Schoology was a new and more technologically sophisticated LMS able to combine instructional and communication tools into a collaborative learning interface as reasons for selecting the platform. “We are pleased to welcome Wheaton College, an elite liberal arts college with forward-thinking leaders, as a new customer. Wheaton College saw the power and potential of Schoology’s learner-centric design with a more invigorated focus on student engagement, achievement, and retention than the course-centric designs of a traditional LMS.” said Jeremy Friedman, CEO of Schoology.

Schoology connects all the people, content, and systems that fuel education in a platform that’s so easy to use, it’s second nature. The platform offers higher ed institutions time-saving course management, assessment management, in-depth analytics, and flexible standards-based integrations that make it simple to connect other systems. Schoology also provides native mobile apps so faculty can manage their classes on the go and students can stay connected on any device.

“Our students and faculty participated heavily in the selection process for our new LMS. The students were clear that they wanted a platform that was simple to use on any device and powerful enough to be fully adopted by all faculty so that there would be just one LMS for all of their courses and activities,” said Wendy Woodward, Chief Information Officer (CIO) at Wheaton College. “We selected Schoology because of its intuitive learner-centric design, its ability to support our traditional and new teaching methods, and its strong integration capabilities.”
