A central place for teachers, students and parents to interact and share

How do you ensure learning after the bell rings? Strengthen school community ties by providing safe spaces for groups of students and teachers to interact outside of normal classroom activities. Create student communities for school clubs, and professional learning communities for teachers to help develop their skills and promote job satisfaction. Keep parents involved in their children’s school lives through a dedicated Parent Portal with automatic updates on academic progress, access to assignments and more.

Teacher to Teacher

Communities: Teachers can use communities to collaborate across the district, by grade level or subject area. Others can join communities for special or pedagogical interests.

Library: Teachers can share resources in the Library, collaborate on shared resources, and rate and review resources.

Teacher to Student

Planner: Teachers use the planner not only to plan, organize and align units and lessons to standards, but also to communicate with other teachers and students.

Bulletins: Post bulletins to students as text, video or audio.

Messages: Send instant messages to the entire class, one group, or to individuals. Send messages through the itslearning “your student” profile card with all the student assessments and tasks immediately accessible, or through the recommendation engine, informing students of personalized tasks.

Rubric and Assessment Feedback: Teachers use rubrics not just to score performance, but to give students concrete, actionable feedback on assignments.

Student to Student

Discussion Boards: Students can post ideas or collaborate on subjects, using the rich text editor to record audio and video, or embed external media.

Course Group Folders: Groups can have their own course folders to add resources, or communicate through discussion boards, chat and video conferencing.

Digital Student Communities: Students can create communities and invite others to join so they can collaborate on projects, special interests, study groups or clubs.

Teacher/School to Parent
