Procedure for all new Elevate Club Students (first year)

1. Student and parent contact details

Every class will have a spreadsheet that contains, amongst other information. their names, mobile number and email addresses.  This is saved on OneDrive in the correct folder dependent on whether its a primary or secondary club.

It is essential a cut off date for registration in clearly communicated to parents.  This should be 1 week before the start date as much needs to be set up and bought for each student.

Every students and parent needs to have contact details created so they can be called / emailed when necessary. Students are texted regularly while parents are normally emailed as these have proved the most effective means of communication in the past.

Outlook contacts for every parent and child that register are created by extracting information from the Google registration form into a .csv file which is then imported into Outlook.  As an example the file use in November 2107 can be found here.  This video explains the procedure.

The easiest way to do this is to create a spreadsheet and import.

2.  Introduce to Achieve Now web site. 

Specifically to their student page - Password club  

Explain how this is set up to save them typing in complicated web addresses.

Get the student to save it as a save as favourite.  Obvious on own machine. If using Google Chrome students in school can login to Google accounts and have all their favourites saved along with passwords.  This saves time every week. 
I have asked all the parent to create Google accounts for their children, but there are small hoops they need to jump through if children are under 13 years. 

Typing.  I have found a better solution Typingclub.com  Existing secondary students will continue to use Typing.com

3. Create Typing.com user- All students learn to touch type.

To do this sign in as a teacher.  

  • User            AN.Club.Tutor@gmail.com
