Public and private schools can record attendance as usual. We've added Department of Education codes for Public schools, while Private School administrators can add their own.

Marking Attendance

uEducateUs has been updated with new Department of Education attendance codes to be used during Remote Learning activities; Code 100 is used for “At Home/Online Learning”, while 623 is for students who attend school because their parents work with Emergency Services, in healthcare or belong to other required services.

Similarly, Private Schools can add their own codes to uEducateUs to record Remote Learning attendance.



Classroom Q&A

Teachers often modify subject discussions based on feedback from students. In a classroom situation, this can be done on the fly, but Remote Learning presents additional challenges.

Video classes are a way to handle lesson Q&A, but have limitations:

  • First, families may not have enough devices, or a poor internet connection, which means they’ll miss out on the lesson;

  • Second, if students are distracted because of their home environment, they’ll miss out on lesson content and can’t ask questions;

  • Third, teachers and students may experience computer or Internet issues, which means they can’t attend the lesson at all.

A uEducateUs Announcement may help solve this problem.

Let’s say a teacher creates an announcement for a Mathematics lesson. They attach learning materials and provide an overview for the class.

Students and parents can reply to the announcement with questions. The teacher can reply directly to the question and keep their response confidential, or add the question to the Announcement text which can act as a kind of FAQ, or Frequently Asked Question.

Using announcements in this way means all the class information is found in a central place, which makes things easier for everyone. It also lets students ask questions at any time, so they participate in the lesson.



What if there’s not enough devices?

Morwell Central Primary School has a great workaround for this problem, which mixes normal classroom activities with uEducateUs.

Their teachers create uEducateUs Tasks then assign them to parents, the same as Tyers Primary School.

Parents access the task with the uEducateUs app on their smartphone.

Then Students complete the tasks on pen and paper, the same as they would in the classroom.

And when finished, the parent just photographs the work and attaches to the task before sending back for marking.

Morwell Central Primary School is located in the Latrobe Valley, Victoria and has almost 400 students.



Issue class work with uEducateUs Tasks

Tyers Primary School uses Google Drive and uEducateUs Tasks to issue schoolwork to students. Teachers can choose from Learning Tasks, Homework, Assignments and Assessments and even Quizzes.

Each is assigned a due date, and teachers just paste a link to the Google Drive file into the task. Then it’s sent to parents who can supervise their children, and attach their work to the task before sending it for marking.

Task due dates are recorded in the parent’s uEducateUs Diary so they’ll know when things are due.

Tyers Primary School in Gippsland was established in 1879 and has just over 100 students.



Diary and notifications

uEducateUs comes with a calendar system where parents and students will find the school timetable, and due dates for tasks and assignments.

Parents & Students get notifications when a new task is created, and teachers can send notifications if tasks haven’t been noticed or worked on.



Keeping in contact

Teachers may want to check-in with individual students during the day, or perhaps parents or their children have questions about the work.

Rather than firing-up a new video conference, these questions can be handled with uEducateUs Conversations, which are a little like SMS messages on your Smartphone.

Students and parents can converse one-on-one with classroom teachers, and teachers can chat with individual or groups of students.



Giving feedback

Remote learning means it’s harder for teachers to quickly update students on their progress, and point out strengths and weaknesses.

A way to solve this is with a uEducateUs Progress Report, which teachers can use to provide high-level overviews of student progress, highlighting positives, negatives and ways to improve.

They’re a little like a Semester Report, but can be written at any time during the school year.

You can also use them when you write Semester reports. Either attach them for inclusion in the report, or use them as reminders when writing.



Breakout groups

Sometimes it’s good for students to work together in groups on a task or assignment.

User Groups can be used as an online space for specific students, parents and teachers to discuss work.



Mandatory Reporting

Reporting incidents is simple with uEducatateUs, and teachers can record perpetrator and victim incident details and times. Principals are notified of the incident and determine the best course of action.
