Playground's Timeline feature, similar Facebook feeds, is a place where you and your student's parents can record and share invaluable memories as they are made. As a teacher, you can post to the timelines dedicated to each class you have access to on the Teacher App; each class timeline is visible to your center's administrators, other teachers associated with that class, and the parents and guardians of the class's students.

How to create a Timeline post

Start on the Dashboard screen of the Teacher App and tap on the "Timeline" tile to reach the Timeline screen. Here, you will see in chronological order the posts made to a specific class's timeline—in this example, it's the Sharks class's timeline. If you have access to multiple classes, you can toggle between them by tapping the down-facing caret next to the timeline name; a "Select Timeline" options menu will appear.

To create a new post, tap the plus sign in the upper right corner of the screen. Make sure you are on the timeline of the class you'd like to make a post for before do this!

You'll be brought to the Create Post screen, where you can enter any combination of text, photos, or videos. Tap "Write something…" to bring up your device's keyboard and enter text.

To select media, either tap the green image icon in the lower left corner to open your device's Media Library, or tap the purple camera icon in the lower left corner to open your device's camera. You can add as many photos or videos as you'd like. (You'll need to give the app permission to access your camera and/or media library.)

When you're happy with your post, tap "Post" on the upper right of the Create Post screen. You'll be returned to the class's timeline, with your post at the top of the timeline.

How to delete a Timeline post

Find the post you would like to delete and tap the 3-dot menu on the upper right of that post. An options menu will appear with the choice to "Delete" or "Cancel." Tap "Delete."

Once a post has been deleted, it cannot be recovered.
