Learning to use Online HWDSB tools

09 Sep

If you are done your survey and are looking for something to do, why not start to learn how to use your online tools?  Under the “Links”tab on the right-hand side of the website, click on HWDSB dashboard. As a student, you have access to many of the tools listed.

You all have your username written in your agenda (stickers to come) and you have all reset your password.  Feel free to explore the following:

-Office 365 (your email account)

-Google Apps (your Google Docs account)

-HWDSB commons

*Our Google Classroom site (not on the dashboard, but linked to your HWDSB log-in).  To join our classroom, you have two options: log into your e-mail and find your invitation, or join using the class code.

We will be doing tutorials about how to use all these things, but it never hurts to preview.  Feel free to ask me if you have any questions.
