In the old days, Year 7 and 8 teacher Andrew Boaz of Rolleston School would have multiple folders to fossick through depending on the curriculum area, and files that needed uploaded, downloaded and then filed. When Andrew gave the powerful lesson planning tool iUgo a try, he was sold pretty much straightaway.
“Old planning wasn’t cloud based so it was stored on the computer hard drive. I would need to note on the weekly plan where to find the supplementary planning for a particular lesson — the web address or downloaded files.”
His favourite iUgo tool is the weekly planner. Using it he can create his weekly plans pretty quickly.
“It’s a simple way to document and set out the week ahead and to manage curriculum coverage.”
And sharing lesson planning with management is so much easier. Instead of giving management his computer and a ring-binder with all his plans printed and filed, Andrew’s planning is all readily accessible and easy to view in the Cloud.
Andrew teaches across all curriculum areas, using iUgo daily and hourly for faster, better planning. It supports him and ultimately his students.
“I love working with students and enjoy seeing them progress and grow in confidence, learning new knowledge.”
