What is Schoology?
•Schoology is an internal, educational Learning Management System and social networking platform that offers us a space for online learning, communication, collaboration, and increased student access to curriculum and supplemental content.
• The Mercer Island Schoology site is not visible to the public. All students will have an account at the start of school after they are taught our online rules and expectations, and how to properly use Schoology for school.
Student Login Information: (The account is linked with the student's MISD google account)
Student username: firstname.lastname@example.org
Student password: misd.studentID#
•Parent Schoology account information will be mailed to the address listed in Skyward Family access. Creating a parent account is OPTIONAL. One parent account can be used to monitor any MISD students (IMS and MIHS) in a particular family.For instructions see the how-to's below.How-To instructions for Parents
Digital Citizenship/Online Safety
•Learning to safely navigate in an online learning environment is an important aspect of a 21st century education.
•Utilizing Schoology allows students to learn how to leave a positive digital footprint in a controlled site, which helps to prepare them for interacting in a global, digital world.
•Students last names are hidden and we set expectations reminding students not to post personal information.
