How does a school management system effect the teacher in the classroom?
Being a teacher is considered to be one of the noblest professions that are respected around the world. Many teachers describe the profession as one of the most fulfilling jobs, while many others describe it as more than simply a job, it is a vocation that calls for the utmost dedication and patience possible.
However, handling a class of multiple students with different intelligence levels, communicating with the parents as well as handing had-to-day administration tasks can lead to a lot of stress and fatigue for the teachers.
However, it has been found in schools that employ a school management system (SchoolPortal®), the teachers are more relaxed, are able to concentrate wholly on the students and do the best possible job of teaching and imparting knowledge to the students
How does a SwiftTalk SchoolPortal® benefit the teachers?
It takes the burden away from daily administration tasks
If one were to speak to teachers around the world, the most commonly detested task would be taking the attendance of students – day after day and sometimes even multiple times a day. Similarly, teachers have to struggle with the challenges of other mundane tasks such as creating timetables, making report cards, grading assignments etc.
However, with the use of SchoolPortal®, routine tasks become easier than ever before. Using the software, teachers are able to free up their time from administrative activities. It makes classroom management less burdensome and time-consuming, thus enabling the teachers to do and to focus on what they love most: teaching.
It improves parent engagement and drives student growth
It has been over time and again that the involvement of parents in the school activities enhances the personal and academic growth of the students. By knowing the student’s grades, understanding his strengths and accepting his struggles, the parents can create an easy starting point to open dialogue for discussing student progress and working together with the teacher to achieve the same., offering advice, working on projects together, or giving congratulations.
With the help of SchoolPortal®, teachers in the classroom can inform the parents, engage with time through real-time student performance updates and other convenient communication tools — such as the online software portal accessible by parents and the mobile app that can be downloaded by the parents. This empowers the parents by giving them access to 360-degree views of their student’s performance. This access is no longer limited to the bi-annual parent-teacher meeting, but in fact, it is in real time.
Teachers can also easily send and receive messages from the parents about the behavior of the students or any other matters of concern.
The use of SchoolPortal® has proven to be one of the most effective and efficient ways for teachers and parents to communicate with each other, with up-to-date data and progress at the click of a button.
It helps to become better teachers
Learning is a limitless experience and in the classroom, the teachers have the key responsibility for creating a quest for learning in minds of the students. But very often, the teachers are helping back due to a lack of time as well as resources and very often we find teaching sticking to the guideline of the course.
However, the use of an online SchoolPortal® system completely changes the concept of teaching and learning in the classroom. For instance, with the help of SwifTalk SchoolPortal® the teachers can look up online resources, games, videos, blogs that will make the subject more relatable for the students and inspire them to learn more in their spare time.
Outside the confines of the classroom, the teachers can use the online school management system to send across assignment and homework that is interesting to the students while staying relevant to the topic that the students learn in the classroom.
This is a great way to encourage the students and challenge them at the same time.
It helps students to become better learners.
Beyond these three reasons, teachers love an online school management system because it is the one tool that helps the students perform to their fullest potential. This is achieved in the simplest and most effective manner. SwiftTalk SchoolPortal® lets the students focus solely on their primary responsibility in life – studying. They do not have to run around to teachers, to the administration staff for things like report cards, records, paperwork or any other thing that may bother them or be a hindrance in their student. All that they need to do is to work on their studies whilst the school software manages all their records and their data so that have a seamless learning experience.
A classroom that is based on communication
It is unrealistic to assume that every student in the classroom has interaction levels with each other. Every class has a mix of students who actively participate as well as other for hold back for some reason or the other.
Having a school software has proven to create an online system that is characterized by open communication. Very often a student who is too shy to communicate in class or to ask a question can do so in an online forum. A school management system that has a discussion panel allows the students to communicate with each other, get their queries resolved and collaborate together on various projects to come up with something that is unique
Over the past decade, technology in the classroom has advanced by leaps and bounds. The schools and teachers who have changed their conservative way of functioning and embraced the new technology have succeeded in creating schools where not only are students able to learn better, but even the teachers are able to function more effectively as teachers and guides to the students.
Thus, it can be rightly said that an online SwiftTalk SchoolPortal® is the secret to happier and more content teachers in the classroom.
