No more dogs eating homework!
Wouldn't it be great if your students were that little bit more organised and handed more work in on time? Stile's latest addition — an overview of upcoming due work — will help them do just that.
We’ve tried to strike the balance between keeping students informed while still expecting them to take some responsibility for their time management. We do not attempt to plan their time for them; rather, we automate the task of keeping track of what is due.
Tell me more
When your students next log in to Stile they will be greeted with a neat list of all their upcoming due work right next to their list of subjects. Ordered by when they are due, the most pressing assignments are always at the top, so they can't be missed. Should your students miss a due date (not that it would ever happen), they'll get a big red OVERDUE notice at the very top of that list. If an activity is submitted on time, they get a nice green checkmark.
Mel Field, Learning and Teaching Leader at St Bernard's Primary School, Wangaratta, has been using Due Dates in her classes for a few weeks already and told us that her students "felt that it encouraged them to be more independent and to be responsible for their learning."
How is it done?
As a teacher, all you need to do is set a due date on your activities.
And as an added motivator, we've built in a little surprise as well... if your students are particularly productive, they get treated to a fireworks display—but only once per day!
Let us know in the comments what your students are saying about this latest addition to Stile.
