One of the world's best teachers shares management tips

“There is nothing wrong, with getting it wrong…you learn so much more through the process.” Wendy Horn, Global Teacher Prize Nominee 2018

Inspiration comes in all shapes and forms. Many of us would agree that we had that one teacher who influenced us to set life goals and achieve our best. That one teacher who made us pursue our tertiary studies or who pushed us to achieve more. And for many, Wendy Horn, school principal and science teacher from Protea Heights Academy, is this teacher.

In February 2018, Wendy Horn received recognition for her role in her learners’ lives, when she was nominated as one of the top 50 teachers in the world for the Global Teacher Prize. Wendy understands that educators “shape the future” of their learners.  Wendy also believes that being a teacher must be your calling, “when you stand in front of that class, those children must be your everything.” She adds that “the school, through the innovative use of technology, is preparing learners to be creative problem solvers that will be able to make a positive contribution to society in the future.”

As part of their strategy and digital toolkit, Protea Heights Academy uses Staffroom Software.

We asked her to share her experience with Staffroom Software:

HOW DOES STAFFROOM SOFTWARE IMPROVE YOUR PROCESSES?

“The product saves time. We are able to work from any place that has an internet connection. It also speeds up processes, allows us to collaborate and share data seamlessly.”

IS STAFFROOM SOFTWARE WORTH THE INVESTMENT?

Yes, we save time! It makes the workload less per educator. We can communicate easily with parents and learners. Staffroom allows us to share data so that we can analyse our performance and suggest suitable intervention strategies.  We also cut down on the use of paper and files and can share information effortlessly. The digital archive allows us to store marks, reports and learner information which means we can share these documents with every staff member, as well as parents. Without Staffroom I would ‘freak out’ – it would be as if we were back in the dark ages and would mean more work!”

According to Wendy, Staffroom Software adds to the success of her team, “it adds to our brand in that we communicate with parents effectively. It allows educators to work smartly and saves time. The product allows easy and effective data analysis. It just makes the admin a little bit easier – which in turn means we can use our time more efficiently.”

Empower educators through technology

In large sectors like the Education Sector, decision-making must be driven by data. Student Information Systems (SIS) supports a flow of data that is easily accessible and can be analysed to increase the accuracy of decision-making.

An effective SIS offers solutions to tertiary institutions – ones that are flexible, comprehensive and scalable. The ideal SIS has the capacity to configure the automation of an entire student management system based on an individual institution’s needs and requirements.

Probably the most powerful element of a SIS, is the easily accessible data it can provide. Organised data at one central point, from where reports can be compiled, data analysed and projections made – all with one important result: interpreted data for informed decisions that rely on facts.

If knowledge is power, then decisions based on interpreted data is the ultimate empowerment of your institution’s management team. 

Stellenbosch University opted for a SIS that offers them the administrative management system they need. Learn more here or get in touch for more information.

A proven solution for mobilising employee success

A mobile app for the workplace has the potential to be a powerful platform for centralised information management and employee communication. But there are many challenges that go hand-in-hand with developing an app. Building an app is costly, both in terms of time, human resources and financial resources. As a result, organisations list an app as a ‘nice-to-have’ item, rather than integral to the productivity of their employees. But what if there is a platform that allows an organisation to build a mobile app – without needing coding skills?
