Posted by Bojana Lazarevska on in Featured, Learn, News | No comments

We’re so excited to announce that the newest version of the Schoolbox Teacher Course is now available! If you want to learn more about what the teacher course is and how it works, make sure you check out this video. Some of the notable features of the course include:

Benefits of the new Teacher Course

Differentiated learning

New to this course, we’ve created differentiated learning resources to help you learn in a style that suits you. When completing tasks, you can choose to watch a short video, read an instructional guide, view an infographic, OR be guided on how to discover it yourself.

We’ve also distinguished junior and secondary school content, so you can access examples that are relevant to your school context.

Mapped to teacher standards

The Schoolbox Teacher Course has been mapped to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers and the New Zealand Practising Teacher Criteria, so your staff can easily track which standards are covered in the Teacher Course for their professional development log.

Rubric feedback

We’ve upped our rubric game in the latest version of the Teacher Course to provide you with more targeted feedback in due work activities, so you know exactly what you need to demonstrate to become a Schoolbox Teacher Hero.

Seamless updates

In this latest design, we’ve addressed one of the common bugbears of Teacher Course subscribers – managing updates between course versions and the pain of multiple pages. In this latest version, you will have continued access to one Teacher Course page. We’ll update the videos, guides etc… as needed without directly impacting on your Teacher Course page. When new versions do come out, we’ll provide a guide to what’s changed and a quiz to test your knowledge of the new updates.

Connect and share

In the new Teacher Course, we’ve built in even more opportunities for you to harness the collective knowledge and experience of the Schoolbox community with plenty of opportunities to share and participate in forums.

Best practice advice

Not only will the Schoolbox Teacher Course teach you how to use Schoolbox, it will also provide you with practical ideas on how you can implement technology meaningfully. The course looks at how you can build flipped and project-based learning environments as well as delving into continuous reporting, effective rubric writing and using analytics for continuous improvement.

Customisable content

We recognise that every school is different, so we’ve built the course in a way that allows schools to customise the content for their staff. If you’re a support-registered contact at your school, get in contact with us to learn more about how you can customise your school’s Teacher Course (we’ve even got a handy guide!).

If you’re already subscribed to the Teacher Course, you will already have a new Teacher Course page for your school in The Schoolbox Help Centre with the new course – so you can get started straight away!

If you don’t have access to the Schoolbox Teacher Course and want to learn more about how your school can subscribe, contact us at support@alaress.com.au.

We look forward to hearing from you!
– The Schoolbox team
