Are you looking for a way to stay organized this year? One of your teachers recommended the myHomework app. It’s an easy way to track your homework, get reminded when projects are due, and syncs across a variety of devices.

If you are a teacher, you can use the Teacher.io app to manage your class syllabus, and remind students who use myHomework of upcoming deadlines, handouts, etc.

marvels of the Mango

Need some help with your languages classes at school?

Planning on going on a Missions trip?

Try out Mango: an online language-learning system that can help you learn languages like Spanish, French & German, and many more.

“Mango uses real-life situations and actual conversations to more effectively teach a new language. By listening to and repeating after material designed from native conversations, you’ll not only learn the individual words and phrases, you’ll know how they’re used in practical situations and conversations. You’ll learn more than grammar, vocabulary and conjugation, you’ll learn how to communicate.” –FVRL

 

You can find MANGO by going to the FVRL website – online resources (language section).

 

 

 

Click on the Mango Languages link and login using your FVRL library card and pin number.

You will then be prompted to create a free Mango account.

An activation email will be sent – check your junk mail folder if you don’t see one right away…that’s where mine went!
