How Do I Launch Classwork?

The "Classwork" feature, also know as "Lesson Launch," works with Kiddom’s curriculum management and lesson planning tools to enable teachers to find, customize, and schedule presentations and assignments. Lesson Launch also gives teachers the ability to launch a presentation and real-time assignments during in-class teaching.  

Lesson Launch utilizes the power of technology to get real-time feedback on student engagement and understanding, which allows teachers to make immediate instructional decisions to move forward in the lesson, re-teach a particular concept, or try different strategies. With Lesson Launch, teachers can provide students with support during a lesson as opposed to waiting to receive student work, review it, and then re-teach at a later time. 

How do I add assignments to my queue?

When planning for a lesson, you can add assignments to your queue ahead of time. Assignments that have been added to your queue will not show up in student Assignments until they have been launched.

Adding to your queue from Curriculum

Once you've located an assignment from the Curriculum section of your account, you can add it to your queue. Click the blue "Classwork" button in the upper right hand corner and select "Schedule Classwork". Select the class and adjust the date if needed, depending on which day you plan to launch it to your class. Click "Schedule Classwork" and a confirmation message will appear in the lower right corner. Within this message, click the blue “View” button to be brought directly to your queue within your Classroom. From your queue, click on the assignment and click “Start Classwork” to launch it to your students!

You can also preview assignments with students by clicking on the assignment from your queue. This will open the preview and you can interact with the assignment to model it for students before starting the Classwork. Please note that this will not open the preview on student devices, but this can be displayed for students before starting the Classwork.

You can also locate your queue by going to the “Classes” tab, entering your class, and clicking on the “Classwork” button at the bottom within the control panel.

You can also change the date within your queue to view any assignments that you may have scheduled for a different date. Just click the calendar and select the date you’d like to view.

How do I launch Classwork right away?

If you’re viewing an assignment within your curriculum and you want to launch it to your students right away, you can click “Classwork” and select “Start Classwork”. Click the class you want to assign it to and click “Start Classwork”. The assignment will be immediately launched to the students in your class, making this an easy and fast way to push out an assignment. 

What will students see?

Once the Classwork is launched, students will see a pop-up notification alerting them that they have new classwork to complete. Please note that students should be in the "Classroom" section of their account to see this. Once they click "Begin", they will be taken to the assignment.

What will the teacher see?

As students are working on the assignment, teachers can monitor their progress by viewing the percentage completed and by previewing the student's work. To preview their work, hover over the student tile and click "View". This allows you to monitor student progress and check for understanding to make real-time, data-driven adjustments to lessons and pacing. 

You can also preview live answers from other students in your class within this view. Click on the arrows at the bottom to navigate between student previews.

What happens when I stop an assignment in Lesson Launch?

When you're ready to stop an assignment for students, click the blue "Stop" button next to the assignment in the queue or within the preview.

Stopping from the queue:

Stopping from the preview:

Once you've clicked the "Stop" button, students will see a message alerting them that the teacher has stopped the assignment and their work will be submitted.

The submitted assignment will populate on the teacher's Timeline (via the Planner) and on the student's Timeline (via Assignments). Teachers can begin grading the submitted work. If the assignment is unlocked and has not been graded yet, then students will be able to continue working on the assignment asynchronously and can resubmit. 

How can I use Presentation Slides with Lesson Launch?

Lesson Launch can be used to deliver presentations from the Kiddom Platform so teachers don't have to switch between platforms and tools. Click here to learn more about Presentation Slides within Lesson Launch. Note: Lesson Launch cannot project the presentation directly to student devices.

Once you’ve located the presentation that you’d like to use within your curriculum, click the blue “Present” button in the upper right corner. You can either click “Start Presentation” to launch the presentation right away on your screen, or you can click “Schedule Presentation” to add it to your queue for later. 

Can I use Lesson Launch with all the activities within a lesson?

Yes! If you want to add the lesson presentation and all the activities within a lesson to your queue, you can do so in one flow. When viewing the lesson overview page, click the blue “Classwork” button and click “Start Classwork” to launch the presentation and add all the lesson activities to your queue, or click “Schedule Classwork” to add the presentation and all the activities to your queue for later. Then, start the presentation and activities when you’re ready!
