At their Feb. 11 meeting, A-W Business Teacher Andrew Thonstad (r) explained how he and some fellow teachers use an online free learning management system called “Schoology.” With this computer program, he saves much money by having students get their assignments and instructions from this website, complete the assignments on iPads or computers and submit them via a computer file to a website class folder. Therefore, it’s all electronic — no paper wasted. Students can access the class assignments anywhere internet is available — they don’t have to be in the classroom to get, work or complete assignments. If the internet is not available, they can work and save their assignments to their computer’s desktop. Thonstad uses this technology for the courses he teaches: Career Focus, Entrepreneurship, Keyboarding and Computer Applications. Students can also track their grades for each of his class with Schoology. Thonstad is also working on creating a new website for school district.
