Important Technology Information
Posted on 09/02/2020
Hello, Gainesville family! As the resident Instructional Technology Coach, I just wanted to pass on some information regarding Tech Week & Virtual Open House.
  1. Ensure your student can sign in to their Canvas page. They can then join the GVMS Parent/Student page: https://pwcs.instructure.com/courses/154494 (they can click "Join this Course" on the menu on the right-hand side)
  2. You must receive the parent observer code from their account and then sign up for Canvas before you can see the GVMS Parent/Student page. ***You'll only be able to see it if your student joined that page first.*** https://www.pwcs.edu/departments/Instructional_technology/canvas___zoom
  3. You can access the Virtual Open House page by finding the button on the GVMS Student/Parent home page.
  4. Join us to test out Zoom and ensure you can access online Zoom classes on Thursday! More information is provided on the GVMS Parent/Student Page in the Virtual Open House area
  5. Make use of the PWCS Backpack link. It has fantastic resources for parents and students! https://pwcsbackpack.com/
  6. Logins to Office365 must include the @pwcs-edu.org at the end of the username. Passwords can be reset at home.              Password Reset link   https://www.pwcs.edu/departments/information_technology/password_self_service1
