School Spider is the simplest and easiest to use virtual learning environment on the market, here is how it works.
All teachers are given a login to access the School Spider administration area. When logged in homework & discussion items can be posted, and all class information can be modified so your website is up to date.
Homework can be easily posted. This can be as a forum for the pupils to respond and interact with each other, communicating different ideas, or as an actual digital file for pupils to download and resubmit. Files can be easily submit by pupils to enhance comments they are putting in their homework. All homework discussions can be re-invigorated by the teacher at any time.
Discussions that are started in class can easily be added by teachers, enabling children to carry on the discussions at home through their computer. All discussions can be monitored and re-invigorated by teachers at any time.
All class information available through the school website can be edited by teachers through the School Spider administration area. This means that your school website will be up to date with the latest class information, news and events.
Pupils and parents can then login to the website to view discussion posts and homework items posted by their teacher. They can then reply to these discussions and items and view posts made by other pupils, educating themselves not only on the subject content but also in ICT and how the internet works.
As well as having being an extremely simple, robust and easy to use virtual learning environment School Spider also provides your school with a professional website. This website is search engine friendly, easily accessible to the public and easily managed by all members of staff from any computer or smart phone.
