SCHOOLOGY USER GROUP JOIN CODES
Everyone has a Schoology account (Faculty, Staff and Administration). When you login to the Portal, click on the Schoology tile. 

We have created more than a few User Groups to share resources and collaborate across divisions and content areas around specific tools we have available. Crowdsourding has long been a reputable method of research, and who better to ask about best practices than those who are in a similar context (i.e. each other!)

Once in Schoology, navigate to Groups, and choose My Groups, and then click "Join Group". Enter the codes as indicated below.

  • iPad Users' Group: WT6F-H9R8-GVRC7
  • Surface Users' Group: P5VH-27K2-37JC5

And now, for the questions (I'm starting with easy ones, and also completely google-able)...

1. What is the birth flower for August? (Bonus points if you can name which LID Director is born in August)
2. What date is National Toasted Marshmallow Day?
3. When and where did the first swimming school open in the United States?
