Open the Playground app. Tap the New Post icon in the top right corner of the screen. Select the icon for the activity you'd like to record.

The Recipients screen will appear. To find a student, you can scroll through the full directory, search by name using the search bar at the top of the screen, or tap the "Classes" drop-down to select a specific classroom. When you find a student for whom you would like to record an activity, tap the check mark to the right of their name; when selected, the check mark will turn blue. When you are done selecting names, tap the "Next" button in the top right of the screen.

The New Post screen will appear. Select a "Start" and End" time for your activity. To add a custom note to this activity, tap "Type here…" to bring up your device's keyboard. Type your note and then tap "Done." Each unique activity will have specific details that can be recorded. For example, for an "Eating" activity, the amount of food that was eaten per student can be selected.

You can also add a photo or video to the post using the two icons in the bottom left corner of the New Post screen. The left icon is to access the Camera Roll to attach photos or videos you've already taken and the camera icon will let you take a new photo or video in real time. You can attach up to 25 photos and videos (or a combination of the two).

Tap "Post" in the upper right corner of the screen once all details have been recorded. Once your post has been added to the feed, you can View Recipients of your post.

To edit or delete a recorded activity, refer to this article.
