EMAIL 

Faculty Staff, Students and Families

MANAGEBAC AND KOGNITY

ManageBac will continue to be the primary place for students to find assignments and expectations. Teachers may also post additional instructional materials and provide feedback. Kognity will be used by Diploma Program teachers in Individuals and Societies subjects, Math and Science.

GOOGLE DRIVE

Students and Faculty

Many teachers make use of Google Drive for collaborating on documents. However, there are a number of students who will not have legal access to Google products in their country.

ZOOM AND GOOGLE MEET

Students and Faculty

Teachers and Advisors will use Zoom or Google Meet for synchronous experiences, like a class discussion. While it can be helpful to download the application to a laptop, only access to a browser is necessary to participate.

APPS FOR LEARNING

Students and Faculty

Students familiar with subject and class specific apps should expect to continue to use the specific apps indicated by their teachers for various types of learning. Depending on the subject matter, a teacher may introduce a new learning app. Teachers will be selective about choosing a new app and provide adequate time for students to learn to use it

Students will have off-campus access to library resources and databases as usual.
