#1 Time Saving Tip for Teachers
Are you interested in saving yourself some TIME?
I thought you would say yes.
If you are like me you have spent hours a week sorting through piles of observation notes and work samples as you sip on coffee and eat way to much junk food, as you place all of those sticky notes and printed pictures in each child's portfolio.
Oh and lets not forget that we still have to spend hours filling in bubbles on an assessment tool.
Are you ready to hear about the new tool that saved me ton's of time, no more spending late nights working on assessments when the family goes to bed.
I now have that needed time to sit down and play a game with the kids or take a long moonlit walk with my handsome husband.
Do you want to have more of that much needed family time?
Then let me introduce you to the
It is a digital solution to child portfolios and assessments, but it will also help you with daily reports and parent engagement.
You don't have an iPad that's ok, because the learning genie can be used across different platforms.

With the learning genie you are able to have all of the children in your class in the palm of your hand, no fumbling for a pen and sticky notes just take a picture or a video and tag that information to all of the children in the group. Now all you need to do is sit back and take notes of all the good stuff happening in that group. You won't miss a thing, because it will go into all of their portfolios at the same time to access later.
Oh and that's not all, when you are done observing you can also tag all of this wonderful information to all of the learning domains that it meets.
No more stress of mile high portfolios when it is time to fill out an assessment.
You can access all of that information with a click of the button.
Select a child's portfolio that you need to complete an assessment on. Next you will select each measure that is being assessed. Once a measure has been selected, everything that you have tagged to that measure will be brought up so that you can review information before rating that measure.
Hit the rating button and that measure will pop up allowing you to see the measure and rate that child based on the information you just reviewed. Rate that measure and move on to the next.
With the Learning Genie there will be...
What use to take you days or even weeks to fill out before the dreaded deadline,
will now take you hours.
Now that makes for a healthier, happier YOU! It also gives you healthier, happier students because you now have the needed time to spend with them.
Don't go another school year without the Learning Genie you will be glad that you checked it out.
