Literacy Tools: Using the Journal

Learners love to get feedback from their teachers! Using the Journal in myON’s new Literacy Tools makes it easier than ever to have ongoing discussions more often. Use journaling for a specific purpose or simply to comment on student work. The dialogue will motivate students to think more deeply and encourage more writing. The benefits for educators to be able to “see” what their students are thinking and respond in a thoughtful way are limitless. The Professional Services team welcomes the opportunity to provide a session on integrating the journal and other components of the Literacy Tools to deepen literacy teaching and learning.

Additionally, myON has recently released the fifth video in our tutorial series focusing on the Literacy Toolkit. This mini-tutorial will help you understand how users can access the various reading tools to improve their understanding of text. To view the video, please click here or watch below.

Our team of facilitators are experts at collaborating with educators about how best to incorporate myON into existing curriculum. After participating in one of our Professional Development sessions, participants can walk out with a plan on how to implement something new the next day. Our hope is that every myON user sees a way that our content and management features can enhance instruction and increase student engagement.

myON is Committed to Good Student Data Practices

Today President Obama announced the New Privacy Protections for the Digital Age and myON is proud to announce that we stand alongside the President in safeguarding the data of our customers, students and families in the classroom and beyond.  myON is committed to ensure that student data is safe, will not be sold and that we will not misuse or mishandle student information.

myON has been an active member in the Software and Information Industry Association (SIIA) for the past five years and was one of the first signatories of the recent Student Privacy Pledge which was co-developed by SIIA and the Future of Privacy Forum to safeguard student data privacy. These commitments are intended to detail ongoing industry practices that meet and go beyond all federal requirements and to encourage service providers to more clearly articulate these practices to further ensure confidence in how they handle student data.
