ITWORX teaching app assists educators with classroom management
The ITWORX TeacherKit application is something that teachers can add to their toolbox through a smart phone or mobile device.
One way to think of it as it as a kind of a personal organizer for a teacher. ITWORX TeacherKit provides features for classroom organizations like seating charts, attendance logging and the representation of individual and collective student grades. Other features, such as behavioral notes, help to document aspects of student performance that are not academic.
A Sept. 21 press release shows how excited company leaders are to be offering this kind of tool to teachers in today's digital learning environment.
"We are thrilled to be a part of transforming the experience of so many educators in the kingdom, as well as around the world, and serve as their trusted partner on their quest to realize their institutions' e-learning vision,” Hatem Sallam, CEO of ITWORX Education, said in a press statement. “As an established forerunner in the field of educational software solutions, ITWORX Education's scope and mission since its founding have been powered by innovation and expertise, and our TeacherKit application is a prime example … Not only does the app free up teachers' time and turn classroom management into a joy rather than a chore, it also adds value and impact by helping them analyze and share information like never before. More importantly, TeacherKit's multi-lingual interface, versatile features and multi-platform compatibility means that educators have everything they need to effectively manage their classrooms anywhere and anytime.”
For more information, Gulf News Journal spoke with Sallam on Tuesday about how this revolutionary application is typically used in the classroom.
“TeacherKit is a simple, easy-to-use and feature-rich app that makes day-to-day teaching a breeze,” Sallam said. “It lifts the headache of routine administration, allowing you to focus on what really matters to you -- teaching.”
Sallam pointed out various records and features that help with classroom monitoring, such as attendance recording, grade tracking and behavior logging modules.
“It can be used by K-12 teachers, higher ed faculty, corporate trainers and more,” Sallam said.
Sallam said the app is broadly used in Gulf Coast countries such as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the Emirates, but is also used beyond the region in the U.S. and U.K., as well as Mexico, Canada, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Brazil and Australia.
One aspect of the application that is really innovative, Sallam said, is a face recognition feature that helps educators to get more background information on students with a quick and easy-to-use interface.
