Connecting to the Classroom

Depending on what grade students are in, District 191 uses two platforms that allow families to track their students' learning in real time. Elementary students use Seesaw as a digital classroom, and students in grades 4–12 use Schoology to track class materials, assignments, turned-in work, daily grades, and class calendars. 

These connections bring families into the classroom and provide an ongoing snapshot of how and what your student is doing in school.

Seesaw (Grades K-3)

Your student's digital classroom, Seesaw is a fun way for students to showcase what they do in elementary school. Students add pictures, drawings, videos, voice recordings, notes, and more to their online journal. The best part is, through Seesaw, families get to follow along with their student's learning journey.

Schoology (Grades 4-12)

Schoology connects students to their teachers. Students get class assignments, link to readings and guides selected by their teacher, collaborate with classmates, and work on self-paced learning activities. Families can see upcoming assignments and announcements, view assignments, test schedules and daily grades for current classes, and more.

Student Devices (Chromebooks)

All K-12 students will receive a district-issued Chromebook, charger and case to take home in order to access learning. Students use varying models of Chromebooks depending on grade level. These devices provide students access to the internet, their Google accounts and other web-based applications, including district resources such as Seesaw and our online learning system, Schoology.

Digital Learning

Digital learning in District 191 teaches foundational technology skills that prepare students to blaze their own paths, and enables them to use those skills in creative ways.

Digital Learning in Elementary School

In elementary school, digital learning focuses on helping students develop the skills needed to use technology for learning. Students apply these skills through instructional units that focus on an introduction to One91 Pathways, design and design-thinking, coding, using technology for communication and showing learning, digital storytelling, and digital citizenship.  Digital Learning class is part of the specialist rotation, which also includes Art, Music, and PE. 

Digital Learning in Middle School

In middle school, students in 6th and 7th grade take digital exploratory classes that teach age-appropriate technology skills and embed those skills as they learn how to make videos, study copyright laws, learn web design, computer animation, and programming, and investigate careers in these areas. In 8th grade, students are able to take One91 Pathways technology electives that enable deeper exploration.

Digital Learning in High School

Embedded technology education throughout elementary and middle school prepares students to take advantage of different pathways at Burnsville High School, which provide opportunities for students to explore different technology-related careers and prepare to blaze their own path.
