Cambridge School of Constanța cultivates a more inclusive and collaborative learning experience with Kinderpedia
From their own, limited, school administration system, to a global, cloud based solution for communication and school management
Cambridge School of Contanța was using their own school management software for communication, gradebook and reports. But this platform was outdated and it failed to incorporate all the instruments a modern school needs for communication, management and financial operations.
“Even though we had some centralization through Google Classroom, each teacher and each class used the tools in an unstructured way and I felt the need for unity. Then we decided to implement Kinderpedia.”
Making the switch in just a few days
The onboarding process took less than a week and Kinderpedia’s customer support team worked hand in hand with the school’s administrative team to ensure a smooth transition.
”We implemented Kinderpedia very quickly, on the verge of the pandemics, given the overnight suspension of classes and the need to adapt immediately.” says the manager.
The school benefited from setup of the school account and database import, personalized training with all teachers, tutorials library, feedback sessions, ongoing assistance from the support team.
”We received prompt help from Kinderpedia. The technical support and training team was patient and offered solutions to all our wishes and needs. I could say that some features we requested during this period were developed for us, although I am sure they had them in their development plan.” added Nicoleta.
Sharing information quickly and easily
Kinderpedia facilitates effective two-way communication between the key members of the school community, empowering teachers, parents and students to send direct or quick messages, provide feedback and daily observations and to comment on assigned tasks.
“Teachers, parents and students are far more connected on Kinderpedia, cultivating a more inclusive and collaborative learning experience, which better supports our students and creates an atmosphere of togetherness, as we strive for excellence in education.” , says Lauren Engler, Cambridge Examination Officer at Cambridge School of Constanta
Facilitating an educational process responsive to each child’s needs
In the app, feedback and suggestions are shared in real-time, allowing a fully personalized and efficient communication between school and family.
“Having an interactive platform like Kinderpedia, means that teachers, parents and students can share information quickly and easily, allowing for effective two-way communication to take place between the key members of our school community. There are tools available to send direct or quick messages, ways to provide feedback for specific lessons and comment boxes relating to assigned tasks. Kinderpedia opens the lines of communication between families and our teachers, in a manner which allows for positive feedback and suggestions to be shared in real time, while also facilitating the instant rectification of any challenges which may arise in a student’s daily learning programme.” , adds Lauren Engler.
“For parents, Kinderpedia has proven to be the most effective solution. It helped us a lot in communicating with the school and allowed us to have a much clearer picture of our children‘s activities and progress.”
Andreea Mircea, a Secondary School Teacher Cambridge School of Constanța talks about how teachers from Cambridge School of Contanta enjoy the time-saving functionalities that help them organize their activities and keep the parents informed: “I would highly recommend Kinderpedia, as it encompasses all the resources needed for good online and offline teaching. The platform makes my work easier and saves me a lot of time.”
All school communication and management tools in one integrated platform
The manager now gets a complete overview of all the departments of her school, runs reports effortlessly and plans effectively.
“The main benefit of Kinderpedia is the integration of all necessary functions in one application: videoconferencing, uploading and checking educational materials, recording students' attendance and progress, communicating permanently with students and parents through the messaging functions.” , shares Nicoleta Grigoraș, Educational Director Cambridge School of Constanța.
