Taecanet additions for the new school year

There has been little respite for our technical team over the summer 'holidays' with a number of ongoing activities designed to improve both the functionality of the Taecanet service, as well as the number of curriculum subjects on offer. Many thanks to our Content Creation Teachers for all related contributions. To add to our existing portfolio of KS (Key Stage) 2 & 3 History, Science and Geography, these teachers have been hard at work to improve Taecanet for all involved. We sent out a ballot to all of our school customers last term to canvas opinion on what we should develop next. Key Stage 1 materials as well as R.E. and Citizenship topped this list, so this is what we have produced! Taecanet are now offering these new subjects and KS which should be fully launched and available at the end of October.

In terms of functionality, we have also made improvements to the 'Groups' section to allow multiple user import/export as well as offering a search facility to make finding particular students much easier. There is a very useful 'explore' section available (in the Help file) so that teachers' access to valuable web materials is made even easier. We have developed a much improved Reports system as well to give teachers more information relating to individual student performance, as well as whole class information.

Virtual Classroom (see previous post 29/9/06) is also proving an interesting concept for schools, especially those with one eye on community projects such as SSAT (Specialist Schools and Academies Trust) affiliates. This service will soon be available through Taecanet and I will keep you posted on any progress regarding this valuable initiative.

We hope to continue to improve Taecanet based on feedback received from the teaching community, as this way we can truely support teacher's needs.

For some recent Case Study material proving that we are on the right track, please visit http://www.taecanet.com/ where you can view a short video diary of Holy Trinity Primary School in Cookham, Bucks. They have reported significant learning gains as a result of Taecanet usage which is great news for all involved. Long may it continue!
