Learning technology for the new generation
Where we’re faced with a generation of learners with readily available information, easy access
and a connected lifestyle, the learning experience needs to equip these students with skills to
transform knowledge into wisdom.
Having a learning management system (LMS) in schools is the first step to giving teachers the
tools they need to optimise their teaching strategies and enhance the learning experience of
K–12 students in the 21st century. The Schoolbox LMS is designed with the modern learner in
Let’s start with some learning management system basics.
Also known as an LMS, this is software that facilitates the learning that takes place in the
classroom, by providing teachers a modern learning platform to share teaching resources, assess
and provide feedback, encourage collaboration between students, and use personalised mechanisms
to complement individual learning needs.
Features of an LMS for K–12 include:
Customised Learning Solutions
Social Interaction and Peer-to-Peer
Individual Assessment and
Reporting and Feedback
And to make it easy to integrate into the teaching process and extend learning beyond the
classroom, LMS software is accessible from anywhere, anytime, as long as you have internet
connectivity and the relevant login details.
In the modern learning environment, teachers and students benefit from instant information, ease
of access, peer-to-peer collaboration, learner interaction, sharing resources, and assessment
differentiation. With learning management system software, educators will be equipped with
digitools to track learner progress and facilitate learning for students at their individual
Having an online learning system means your students will be able to access relevant study
materials whenever they want. If a student prefers studying after school, they can get their
homework completed then, or maybe they’re a morning person—easy—they can login in the early
hours. And in an era where smartphones have become a part of the social ecosystem, LMS Apps also
allow for mobile learning.
The LMS facilitates learning by providing one platform to map out the student learning journey
and enabling self-paced learning. And all information is available in one location for students
to access; no more excuses about losing handouts or forgetting to bring assessments on time.
As all information relating to each course is housed in one platform accessible to students,
parents, teachers, and the wider school community, the ease of collaboration and communication
is exceptional. Not only that, parents and other key players relevant to the students’ wellbeing
can be informed in real time and be involved in the learning journey.
No student learns the same way—fact. A need for different styles of teaching with personalised
approaches is therefore key. The LMS simplifies the process for individualised and
differentiated learning so teachers are no longer worried about the ‘how’ and can focus on
finding the best approach for each student.
The ability of an LMS to enable social learning extends the learning experience beyond the
classroom. Social media has become ingrained into the new generation of learners, so a learning
experience that can incorporate this familiar style will result in a student-base that is highly
engaged and collaborative. And this is exactly what an LMS does through tools like discussion
boards, social stream, forums, and content sharing.
Having a learning management system gives the power of learning to the student. By empowering
students to take charge of their learning, you make education enjoyable and develop a love of
learning in this new generation of learners.
