Enhancing school communication and collaboration
So, imagine the learning experience when vital elements like communication and collaboration are
extended beyond the classroom. Schoolbox recognises these advantages for today’s K–12 learners
and on top of the Learning Management System, we also provide teachers with a School Portal
solution to keep their students connected even after the bell has rung.
As a teacher, you want to be there for your students along their learning journey and provide
assistance where possible. The School Portal tools in Schoolbox provide engagement opportunities
for you to connect with K–12 students outside the classroom.
A customised landing page which encompasses your school portal features and branding, as well as
links to your Learning Management System and other important pages.
A space to show and track all school events including student assessments, personalised to each user.
A medium to deliver relevant information about the school to those who need to know and on devices they prefer to use.
A digitool to collate all the events that took place during the week and provide a simple, easy-to-read email
A place to manage and automate group enrolments and interactions. Share, engage, and collaborate
with all your extra-curricular groups including: sports, debating, chess, committees, and other
The School Portal is a powerful tool to coordinate a range of school activities, enhance parent
engagement and assist with school organisation and communication.
We’re living in the age of connected communities where creativity, thinking critically and
problem solving are becoming increasingly valuable skills. Consequently, the importance of
instant information in the learning journey cannot be underestimated.
A portal solution will provide a space to set up and administer notifications to relevant
audiences. For instance, if a major assignment is coming up, you could set up regular reminders
so your students are engaged with the requirements of the assignment and importantly, submit on
time. This communication space also allows parents to be involved in the learning journey.
Communication tools like news, forums and blog posts enable instant correspondence and keep
students connected throughout the learning experience.
With the School Portal, teachers can provide different opportunities for students to
collaborate. Creating spaces like forums, social streams and chats enables students to
continue the learning process outside of the classroom and outside of the ‘timetable’. Not
only are you encouraging peer-to-peer collaboration but you’re providing different mediums to
nurture a love of learning. You also have the opportunity to collaborate with other teachers
to share information and enhance skills.
Web portal features provide a number of ways to increase engagement in a structured framework.
This means you can organise your school’s activities to assist with managing your school more
effectively. Using features like groups and digest emails for instance provides easy-to-manage
processes for extra-curricular activities and ensuring your school community is kept up to
date with information that is relevant to them.
The School Portal features in Schoolbox LMS software are carefully constructed to support and
connect your entire school community. The digitools available through the School Portal are
designed to provide the best possible learning experience and facilitate opportunities for
teachers to communicate instantly with their students and parents, and promote collaboration
outside the classroom.
