Classroom Management brings all academic programs, subject study guides under one platform for easy access, and foolproof storage. Faculty and students can typically access it on desktops or on their phones and tablets. When applied, this software makes the classroom experience much more powerful and acts as a complement to classroom learning. It aims to analyze and reduce the training and learning gaps by using analytical data and reporting. It is a technology that has the potential to improve learning, make it faster, more reliable, cost-effective and trackable. Effective classroom management helps in:
- Creating and assisting an orderly environment in the classroom
- Increasing meaningful academic learning and facilitating social and emotional growth
- Maximizing the engagement time spent academically
How School LMS helps in Classroom Management
Support efficient distribution of class materials
By using the LMS to share class materials, all students regardless of whether they are in class or learning remotely will have access to the lesson including objectives, activities and resources. Textbooks can even be shared online via software applications. Instead of students purchasing and lugging one giant textbook to and from school everyday, an up to date product can be integrated into the class page.
Resources in a variety of formats
Resources are able to be sourced and disseminated in a diverse range of formats. This allows teachers to gather multiple resources on a topic or skill that will help students understand the context in a way that suits them. Videos and external sites can be embedded easily into the class pages to allow students ease of access as well as aesthetically engaging learning pages.
Parents and guardians can have access to their child’s calendar, class timetable, outline and assessment dates. This creates opportunities for conversation to meaningfully occur outside of class time and parents or guardians can actively engage in their child’s learning. For students who need help with organisation, this can be a big help.
Transparency on feedback
Feedback from a teacher for formative and summative tasks can be easily shared with the student via the class page of an LMS. These can also be sent onto the parental page and allows all feedback to be kept and stored so students can easily access and action in later tasks.
Education providers face the problem of going through different platforms to organize the teaching process. In this way, they conduct live lessons on Zoom or Skype, sell online courses on different platforms, create tests on Google forms, get in touch with the students through various messengers, and so on.
All the live lessons are scheduled, online video courses are published to sell, quizzes are ready for checking the acquired knowledge, there is additional educational material in the form of blog articles, and everything is implemented automatically with a few clicks.
As a teacher, you just need to prepare and organize the material and follow its flow. In case students have questions or concerns, they may easily get in touch with you through live chat.
You don’t have to contact or inform them about the upcoming lessons as you invite the interested members and they automatically get emails.So, everything is done on one platform. And there is no need to jump from this platform to that in order to organize the process.
Schools can set up a variety of access points and groups to communicate learning via the Learning Management System. Class pages, home rooms, year level or house pages are common.
Tracking student data
Data from student assessment and attendance can be stored in the LMS and used to provide progression with learning. Those students who need extra support across subjects can also be easily identified. Likewise, students who are gifted and talented in more than one subject can be highlighted.
Enhances student organization
When uploading assessments, due dates, task requirements, criteria and information regarding a formative or summative task, an LMS allows teachers to automatically populate into the students’ calendars. This then helps students plan their homework and assignment time as they can see all of their tasks for the week, month and term and also add in extracurricular and personal commitments. It is also possible to share the calendar with parents or guardians.
Digitalization of teaching and learning
By digitizing the curriculum, students have access to the same unit outlines and resources regardless of what class they are in and create cohesion and equitable access across the grade. Units can also be archived for the following year, eradicating the notion of recreating work. Teachers can then use this archive feature to reflect upon, review and improve units for the following year.
Technology has proven to make every task simpler, and School Management System is no different. With an integrated school platform, teaching, learning, and administration become simple and effective. eduTinker offers schools the digital infrastructure to set up and run such a complex solution and offers a whole lot of features that can make the operations of all the associated stakeholders easy and efficient.
