Can online social media motivate your students?
Today’s students watch YouTube, upload images to Flickr and follow their friends on Twitter. And now they can at school, too. With it’s learning, students can create project pages for study groups, share their interests on blogs, take part in classroom debates online, showcase their work in their own ePortfolios, upload videos they make at home, and much more – all within a safe school-controlled environment.
Assessment for Learning
The tools you need for assessment for learning
Every teacher is expected to implement assessment for learning in the classroom. With itslearning, formative assessment has never been easier. You can match learning objectives from the national curriculum with each activity in a course or individual student learning plan. And each student has two portfolios: a working portfolio with a list of tasks, a work log and the learning objectives; and an assessment portfolio for their finished work. You can add notes and improvement suggestions to work in the portfolios – and use the assessment portfolio to reflect with them on their finished work.
Following your child’s progress has never been easier
Parental involvement is essential for a child’s educational success, so we’ve given parents their own dedicated portal. Each parent has a secure username and password, and they simply log-in to get a full overview of their children’s up-coming tasks, as well as their grades and attendance and behaviour reports. The parent portal saves teachers time, too. Activation of the parent portal ensures that relevant information on attendance, behaviour, marks and grades, is presented to parents in a simple and clear overview without the teacher having to spend time writing individual reports.
