Company News Creativity and technology in education: 2016 ISNZ Conference, Wellington. Events Schoolbox salute creativity and technology in education at the 2016 ISNZ Conference, Wellington. It’s showtime again! We are so pleased to be exhibiting at the 2016 ISNZ Conference in Wellington this Friday and Saturday. We would love to see some faces from our NZ-based Schoolbox schools. The ISNZ Conference is dedicated to providing a forum for New Zealand’s leading independent schools to explore creativity and technology in education. We are proud to be a part of this initiative again, and look forward to joining the NZ independent education community in a forum focused on next generation education. Visit Schoolbox, Engagement Platform for K-12 Schools at Stand 3, where we will be showcasing our latest major release, v16, sharing with you our fantastic new Pastoral Care System, and showcasing the following exciting new features: New Course Creation Workflow: Quickly build new courses and push them to multiple classes, ensuring correct ownership and dates are efficiently applied across the entire cohort. User Group Provisioning System: Easily manage group membership based on SIS data which dynamically adds and removes users to groups, reducing manual management of groups. Permission Inheritance: Simplify role and group permissions with automatic control, making the job of administering permissions much easier. Join our team including Co-founder and Product Director, James Leckie, and Director of Sales & Marketing, Ellen Richards, to discover how implementing an integrated Virtual Learning Environment will transform your school community and support your teaching staff to create a meaningful learning experience using technology. One of the hot topics at this year’s event is self-directed learning and technology in the classroom.
