Staff accounts for senior-year candidates

Elon has partnered with area school systems to provide you with a staff acount and associated privileges during your senior year internships. Once your school placement has been finalized in fall semester of your senior year, you may begin the process of obtaining a staff account that will give you access to staff email and other privileges that will extend through your spring student teaching experience.

Privileges and responsibilities

Remember the school system has invited you to be a guest in one of their schools and has extended access to technology resources to you as if you were a staff member. Those privileges come with responsibilities, and you are expected to behave professionally and use resources responsibly while adhering to stated policies regarding technology use in your school.

Resources to help you learn

  • SMART Board support - resources and support for using SMART Boards in various ways in your classroom - also has instructions for downloading Notebook software and the code needed to activate it beyond the trial period.
  • Use Google Sites to create a teacher/classroom website that you can share with your students, their parents, and other teachers. You can use your Elon or personal Google account or in ABSS, use your staff account.
