FAIRPORT, New York — SchoolWorld, a leading provider of award-winning Web solutions for the K-12 education industry, today officially launched a new WebModule called the Lesson Planner™ Module. The Lesson Planner Module provides schools and districts a robust set of tools to comprehensively manage and execute lesson planning activities with teachers and administrators. From setting up state education standards and performance indicators to managing lesson plans with calendars and homework assignments, the Lesson Planner Module is a secure, Web-based tool for teachers and administrators to better track, plan, and manage lesson plans. “We have nurtured the Lesson Planner Module in a select beta group for the last couple months with great success. We are excited to release a robust, comprehensive tool that will revolutionize the way K-12 district and school administrators track and manage curriculum state standards—as well as allow teachers a quick and easy way to input and plan current and future classroom lessons, activities, and assessments,” said Mike Ramsager, vice president, Internet Applications at SchoolWorld.
The Lesson Planner Module gives administrators the power to define critical metrics for successful lesson planning including education standards, performance indicators, assessment tools, and learning activities. An easy-to-use reporting feature helps schools keep track of lesson plan submissions. Reviewers can be assigned to each teacher to ensure state and district guidelines are being adhered to. Other impressive features include:
-Set district or school-wide standards, indicators, assessments, activities
-Create standard lesson plan templates for all teachers to leverage and share
-Provides reliable and comprehensive reporting capabilities for districts and schools
-Assign administrators and reviewers to teachers for lesson plan approval
-Utilizes the same interface as SchoolWorld’s SchoolSites™ and TeacherSites™
-Fully integrated into TeacherSites, SchoolWorld’s classroom website solution
In addition to tracking, planning, and managing lesson plans, the Lesson Planner Module enables teachers to quickly and easily share lesson plans with fellow teachers throughout the district. "Having SchoolWorld’s Lesson Planner Module incorporated into our SchoolWorld TeacherSites made things much easier for our teachers,” said Jason Frazier, management information systems coordinator at Berkeley County School District. “A great benefit is that teachers don’t have to remember multiple logins for TeacherSites and Lesson Planner—they can update their classroom website and weekly lesson plans all in one location. In addition, having the ability to link our state standards to the lesson plans helps our teachers ensure they are covering the required material."
The Lesson Planner Module is offered alongside a family of feature-rich WebModules SchoolWorld provides to the K-12 education market to enhance school and district website functionality both internally and externally. The Module integrates seamlessly into SchoolWorld’s SchoolSites and TeacherSites solutions. Lesson Planner is competitively priced to meet the budgetary needs of districts and schools—user training is also included in the cost.
