We know that sometimes the terms on our platform need some explaining; here's some Kiddom jargon for you:
Academy - Measure the pulse of teaching and learning in your community. When your school or district signs up for a School Plan or District Plan, you get access to additional, community-level features and support. Find out about Academy.
Assignment Group - Within Planner, you can add a number of assignments that are grouped together to serve various purposes, such as remediation, self-paced instruction, differentiation, review, or by topic. The assignments in them can be assigned to students together as a set or individually. See more about Planner
Class Code - If a student wants to join a teacher’s class, he or she will need to use the Class Code unique to that class. Where is my class code?
Collaborator - A collaborator can be anyone in the school community with whom you share edit or view privileges of your class data and curriculum. See more on collaboration
Gradeback - The student work will be graded for you. If you attach a CK-12 or Khan Academy assignment that falls under the ‘practice’ category, students’ grades will be automatically entered into your Kiddom gradebook. This feature only allows only one attachment per assignment. See… Attaching more than one Gradeback
Planner - You can think of Planner as a digital curriculum binder or bookshelf, storing resources like lesson plans, activities, worksheets, and videos for later use. For each class there is a ‘master curriculum’ that you can share with whom you collaborate. See more on Master Curriculum
Timeline - This is where you create or drop assignments from your Planner to assign. You can edit who receives it, the due date, and grading options. See more about Timeline.
Resource Room - Professional development materials on your own time: teaching resources and guides; resources for students, parents, and more. Check out our resource library.
