Recent events have caused schools around the world to find changes in the way they work.


For many Frog schools, moving to a virtual school model of operation is nothing new. Frog works with schools around the world and our community has encountered closure through everything from natural disasters, to severe weather patterns and even social upheaval.

Business continuity planning means not just finding new ways to facilitate learning but finding ways to keep the whole school running. Here we are sharing some of the ways in which schools use Frog to carry on with business when the world closes down...

Assignments - who is setting what?
Apr 2, 2020, 7:45 AM

You've told us that visibility is key when both students and teachers are working remotely, so here are some guides to help you!


Assignment Monitor

This application, which you can find in FrogDrive > Applications allows you to see which departments are setting work, week by week.  Assignment Monitor also lets you search for individual students, see all their work set and the marks they received.

Reporting

The Reporting app is a useful tool when preparing for meetings. Heads of department can see which members of staff are setting work and be able to report on class hand-in rates.  You can run reports on students too, seeing counts for work set across multiple subjects and how much they are handing-in.

Setting work across a whole year group
Mar 31, 2020, 2:26 PM

Using Markbook to create and set homework for every class in a year group.

The Head of Computing at Mulberry School for Girls wanted to be able to set homework for the whole year group, but was concerned that in doing so, his teaching team would not have a feasible way to mark the assignments.

This problem is easily solved by using the Frog Markbook.

The Markbook saves time when setting and marking work because one teacher can assign work across the whole cohort and each individual teacher can asses their own classes. It also gives a picture of everything a student has been set, which is useful when trying to control their workload at home.

 

Here's a useful guide to Frog Markbook:

Record all Homework Activity

  • Assignment hand-ins and non-submissions for online and offline homework.
