Technology Help for Students and Parents

School @ Home 

Dear Students and Parents,

In an effort to make the transition to learning at home easier, we are putting together a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page with explanations, help documents, links to helpful articles, and instructional videos.  It is our hope that these resources will help you utilize technology better while at home.  If there is something you would like added to this FAQ, please feel free to email me.

General Information

There’s a few steps to it, but you can edit it on your Chromebook.  We’ve created a PDF document that explains how to do this.

If you don’t see your FISD Bookmarks from a PC, then you need to log in to your Chrome Browser.  Watch this video to see how to do it.

If your teacher wishes for you to use Zoom for video conferencing, it is available in the Forestburg ISD Chrome Webstore for you to install.  

Important:  Do not sign up for a zoom account.  You do not need one to join a meeting.

Here is how you do it:

 

1. Open your browser

2.  Type in "Chrome Web Store" and hit enter.
