Stay productive - homeschooling.

With the current situation, everyone is being challenged—teaching staff, pupils, and parents, too. We’re having to ask ourselves totally new questions about tomorrow’s learning schedule. We are here to support you in these challenging times and offer you targeted solutions to keep you going. 
 

Current challenges: 

The following thoughts are probably on your mind right now: 

  • How can I communicate with pupils and parents?
  • How can I make information, learning material, and tasks available?
  • How can I monitor progress on the work I set?
  • How can I support pupils and mark their work?
  • How can pupils work together?

In order to be able to overcome these challenges, you need an online platform that everyone can connect to: pupils, teaching staff, parents, and school administrators.
