As youngster’s up and down the country prepare for school this September, education technology continues to be an extremely hot topic and mobile apps are proving to be a perfect solution for teachers hoping to enhance their classroom experience. Mobile apps can not only help teachers, but also students and their parents. Here are five ways teachers can use apps to engage their students.
1. Improve in-classroom communication
Schools and academies across the length and breadth of the country are full of staff battling stress and anxiety, leading one Trust to explore an innovative solution to the problem.
Leigh Academies Trust in Dartford decided to look at ways to combat stress in school staff by using Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) with the use of an Alpha-Stim Device.
Two thirds of the teaching profession are women and yet only one third reach a level of leadership. This is an incredible and tragic fact, isn’t it?!
For most, this might be surprising, yet in the 21st Century we have all continued to allow it to happen. Diversity across leadership teams is a highly important issue that until recently has not been valued in many schools.
Two years ago, I connected with six secondary school leaders via social media. They were all women and were equally exasperated by the lack of females in school leadership roles.
Parents are feeling in the dark over their children's education after two fifths admitted they didn't know what their child was doing at school.
New research from Canvas, the Virtual Learning Environment, examined the relationship between schools and parents as calls were being made to the government to do more to encourage parental engagement with schools.
A new website designed to boost communication between parents and teachers has been released.
EES for Schools has announced the launch of its new website, Target Tracker Link.
The site will work alongside existing Target Tracker software that is already being used by a quarter of UK schools.
This new site will enable teachers to create pupil observation reports while in the classroom or by using the app while on the go.
Once the reports have been completed, they will be quality checked before being made available to parents.
Schools are under constant pressure to update their policies, values and goals to reflect the changing nature of education and society, and to ensure that students, teachers and staff alike, are following the same path to improvement. But how should you go about setting achievable but ambitious goals for the school, and how can you monitor them effectively throughout the year on an individual and whole-school level?
Teachers from some of the UK’s leading digital schools gathered in Birmingham on Friday, to share the very latest ideas for using technology in the classroom.
