Happy New Year to all our Castle Learning users!
The start of a new calendar year can relate to many different things. A fresh start, redefined goals, or a desired end to the previous year. It is also approximately mid-way through the current school year. A change in semesters may be coming soon along with interim or state assessments. This means your students need review, preparation and practice prior to the real test. Castle Learning is the right tool for accomplishing this get-ready task.
To start the new year we also have some changes coming to Castle Learning. Our Development Team has released a new printing platform. No, the company is not going backwards. Castle Learning is still primarily committed to the use of technology. However, paper-based activities are still heavily used, and necessary in today’s academic system. The students need a mixture of methods to ensure their comprehension of multiple resources in the real world. Yes... students need to know how to use a pen and paper.
The new Castle printing platform will provide the teacher with all the flexibility needed for the right layout and use of the paper’s real estate. The options to drag, edit, stack, and resize are just a few of the new features. The Castle Training Team will be offering virtual training sessions to help navigate the new printing platform.
New releases include:
A web-push notification feature. Many users have asked for a method of announcing a new assignment, a due date, unread messages, or the need for CR grading.
A new direct upload for audio and video files to an assignment. This new feature allows the teacher a shortcut to adding a file(s) to the activity while working in the assignment development area. If you are interested in a flipped-classroom concept, this is a super feature.
