Managing activities

  1. 1. Eduphoria Forethought<br />Managing Activities<br />
  2. 2. Managing Activities<br />Activities are created by teachers for publishing to the district activity bank to share with other teachers. Once activities are ready to be shared, teachers can publish activities for review. You can then review, edit and publish activities to the district scope and sequence. The process is outlined below.<br />
  3. 3. Activities are published according to the first learning standard in the list, to keep the scope and sequence well organized. Teachers may include multiple learning standards in activities, but they will only be visible when clicking the first standard in the scope and sequence.<br />
  4. 4. Teachers can choose to have activities published anonymously or have their name and email address available for other teachers to contact them with questions, comments or kudos. Each time an activity is used, the Times Used number increases.<br />
  5. 5. Approving Activities<br />Activities published for review appear in the Manage Tab > Approve Activities<br />Select an activity in the Pending Activities list.<br />Review the content and learning standards.<br />Click the Publish button to approve the activity.<br />Enter any comments to include in an email that will be sent to the teacher.<br />
  6. 6. Return activity to teacher<br />Select an activity in the Pending Activities list.<br />Review the content, possibly adding notes for improvement.<br />Save any changes you make<br />Click the Return button.<br />Enter any comments to include in an email that will be sent to the teacher.<br />The teacher can now make any adjustments and re-publish<br />Please remove the table from the body of the lesson and insert it as an attachment. Then, resubmit. Thanks!<br />
  7. 7. Delete Activity<br />Click the Delete button<br />Click OK to the confirmation prompt<br />Note: Deleting activities permanently removes them from the Forethought system. Teachers will NOTbe able to access their activities that have been deleted!<br />
  8. 8. RECAP<br />When managing activities, make sure that:<br /><ul><li>The first standard in the list is the one that you want the activity to be visible under. (Ex: Do you want “Triangles, Circles, and Squares” under “Resources” or “8A”?)
  9. 9. Always add helpful commentary when returning an activity to a teacher or deleting.
  10. 10. Check through the “Pending Activities” list on a regular basis to see what has been submitted.</li></li></ul><li>The END<br />Produced for <br />Conroe Independent School District<br />You may now close this window and proceed with the rest of the instruction.<br />
