Deputy Principal at Elm Grove School in Dunedin, Grant Peacock, was familiar with the different online planning solutions available. Google docs, international software and word - Grant grew tired of starting from scratch over and over again. Luckily he came across iUgo, since then his planning has gone from strength to strength.
“It gives me confidence each day that I’m organised and fulfilling the professional requirements as a teacher.”
Elm Grove School in Dunedin were shifting to a collaborative teaching environment. The team needed a streamlined way to communicate and document their planning and teaching. He needed software that catered to the curriculum he was teaching. So, he did a quick google search and came across iUgo rather easily - being NZ-made, the programme largely benefits those working in a collaborative environment.
Being a technology savvy teacher meant that Grant understood the power of technology in planning and so he had suggestions for iUgo - one of his favourite parts of the programme is that it is built off the back of teacher feedback. Suggestions from Grant and his team were taken on board, sharing the same goal of living, breathing software looking to serve its users better and better each term.
“I’m blown away by the responsive of the team. Their desire to make the product work for people is astonishing.”
The programme is used in different way by different members of the Elm Grove team. At a collaborative level everything from long-term plans to unit plans to lesson plans are used on a day-to-day bases. Grouping the students in sections has also been used to organise groups.
“I can’t envisage a future in teaching for me in the classroom without this tool.”
