Appearing at the Bett Show this week is SchoolsBuddy, an innovative, intuitive and wide-reaching activities management system to benefit all levels of teaching. Uniquely app-driven, SchoolsBuddy is a mobile solution for communicating among parents, pupils and staff, organising activities, running after-school clubs and helping to safeguard pupils all in one revolutionary system. Full of features to assist both teachers and school leaders, the SchoolsBuddy team will be hosting Bett Stand G310.

The SchoolsBuddy app and partnering web solution benefits school leaders, teachers, parents and pupils by streamlining the way each school organises activities and communicates. Anything from sports events to activities, school trips and clubs can be organised using the app, thanks to functions that request the availability of staff and students and collect fees from parents.

Built first as an app, SchoolsBuddy is completely mobile; everything the SchoolsBuddy web system can do, the app can do too. The team behind this varied resource will be offering live demonstrations at BETT Stand G310.

SchoolsBuddy has three main areas in which it can help schools:

Organising - everything from sports fixtures to music lessons, school trips and after-school clubs. Features include team selection, fee collection, location maps, traffic delay information and everything else in between.

Safeguarding - mobile registers enable teachers to know where pupils should be and instantly alerts key staff if someone is absent within seconds. Particularly useful for extracurricular activities/after school clubs. ICE (in case of emergency) info and medical data can be recalled for each pupil quickly and easily.

Communication and Engagement - keeping staff, parents and pupils in touch by communicating right into their pockets. The message centre and individual pupil dashboards provides centralised storage of all communication, from event cancellations and group reminders, to school wide assemblies and match reports. Push notifications ensure no communications are missed.

Headteachers, directors of sport, school marketing managers and teachers across the world have already welcomed SchoolsBuddy because of the huge number of thoughtful and helpful features it offers, as well as the intuitive way it addresses so many of the problems found in schools today.

    Is Learning Fun for You, Teacher?

    Over the weekend, my family of five went to an Orlando theme park, and I decided we should really enjoy ourselves by purchasing an Unlimited Quick Queue pass. It was so worth the money! We rode every ride in the park at least twice, but one ride required us to ride down a rapidly flowing river, which quenched us with water. It was incredible that my two-year-old was laughing as well. We rode the Infinity Falls ride four times in one day—BEST DAY EVER for FAMILY FUN in the Sun! The entire experience was epic, full of energizing emotions and, most importantly, lots of smiles. What made this ride so cool was that the whole family could experience it together, the motions were on point, and the water was the icing on the cake. It had been a while since I had that type of fun, and I will never forget it.
