Question

What is the PowerSchool Learning Library and how do I use it?
 

Answer

The Library contains content contributed by other teachers and administrators, which you can copy and use in your class. You can browse resources, and if you find something you’d like to use, you can copy it to a new or existing class.

How to Browse the Library


To browse the Library for content, you can select a category, filter by subject and/or grade level, or just type keywords into the search.

How to Contribute to the Library


Domains can specify who is able to contribute to the Library. Some schools may allow all teachers & admins to contribute. Others may restrict it to admins only. If you have been given access to the Library, you will see it as an option when you use the Share option inside a class.

 

To share content to the Library, go to the Share option underneath the Manage Class, Manage Page, or Manage Block menu within a class.
