Please log in to your school email account this week.
We are moving to TEAMS for all weekly assignments except for Currents4Kids.
Each of you has been assigned to a CLASS TEAM!
You will find your invitation in your email.
To login to your email you need your school username and the password you would have used to login to a computer at school. If you have forgotten your username or password please send a message to your Humanities teacher by any email address you can access or by asking your teacher contact when they get in touch this week.
To get into your email:
Google "office.com" or click the link: https://www.office.com/
Choose the "Outlook" icon
Enter your username followed by @nbss.nbed.nb.ca
You should see an invitation to your Team, which will have a link, you click to go to the Team. There is a Welcome message in Posts, which you can read, and you can look in the Class Notebook. Where we have placed some background information for you to read.
In your email, you will also find an invitation to a class meeting.
Please let me know as soon as possible if you are not able to get to your email, cannot remember your password, or do not have an invitation to the class meeting (later this week).
Remember we as teachers are all learning this with you and we will be making changes and asking you to provide feedback about how things are working for you. We will be asking what we can improve and how we can make this a great educational experience for all of you.
Although this unexpected school closure has caused us to implement these changes now, we have always planned to use Teams for teaching, assigning, and grading. This is a great opportunity to get use to technology that we will be using instructionally in the Fall. We are committed to ensuring that you can learn seamlessly in school and at home. No more lost papers, no trying to find your drafts, no more misplaced notebooks---everything you do can be kept in your personal notebook in your class Team. Even better if you have a partner you can use your collaborative workspace to work on your project. You can actually work together from anywhere as long as you have internet. If your partner(s) are absent you can still work.
Have ideas to share with the class you can chat in posts to the whole class or if you are assigned group work you can chat with just your group members. Want to share links or helpful resources you can send me a message with what you found and we can add it to our class content. As we grow and learn the capabilities of Teams together, I am sure we will continue to find ways that we can use Teams to make learning, sharing, and connecting easier.
