Students will be accessing their daily work via Schoology. Parents, if you are interested in what your child has been doing, you can log-in to Schoology with your parent log-in and have "view-only" access to see the same thing your student sees. The only difference is that you cannot see your students work itself only their assignment directions and scores for graded work (or missing notations if work was not submitted).
This course focuses on Microsoft Office. While students will have a base knowledge from Google that can be applied to Microsoft, new skills will be obtained that are necessary in the business world - which still utilizes Microsoft over Google.
