Both in communication with students, teachers and carers, you need solutions designed to streamline various aspects of school life. In this blog post, we’ll explore how EdTech solutions by New Era can be a game-changer when starting a new school term and how they can benefit both teachers and students.

DB Primary: An Overview

DB Primary is a versatile platform that serves as a secure and user-friendly hub for schools. It provides an array of tools and features that support communication, collaboration, and organisation within the school community.

Setting Up Classrooms: At the beginning of a new term, teachers can quickly set up their virtual classrooms on DB Primary. This process involves creating class groups, adding students, and organising resources. The platform’s intuitive interface makes it easy for educators to personalise their virtual spaces.

Communication: Effective communication is key, especially during the transition into a new term. DB Primary offers various communication tools such as secure email, forums, and blogs. Teachers can use these features to keep parents, students, and colleagues informed about important updates, events, and assignments.

Assignments and Learning Resources: DB Primary simplifies the process of sharing assignments and learning resources. Teachers can upload documents, links, and multimedia content to their class pages, ensuring that students have easy access to the materials they need to excel in their studies.

Whether you’re a teacher looking to create an engaging classroom environment or an administrator striving for efficient school management, DB Primary is the tool that can help you make the most of the new school term.

Effective communication between parents and teachers too is more crucial than ever!

Fortunately, technology has made it easier for educators and parents to stay connected and engaged in a child’s academic journey. With our app SchoolPing we guarantee benefits for all:

Real-time updates: SchoolPing provides parents with real-time updates about their child’s school activities, including attendance, assignments, and events. This means no more guessing games about what’s happening at school.

Convenient communication: Parents can easily communicate with teachers and school staff through the platform. This eliminates the need for lengthy phone calls or waiting for parent-teacher conferences.

Access to resources: SchoolPing often includes resources and materials shared by teachers. This can help parents better support their child’s learning at home.

Increased involvement: With the ability to stay informed about their child’s school life, parents can become more involved in their education. This can lead to better outcomes for the student.

Benefits for teachers
