We know that as a busy teacher you will be managing the needs of several students, so we want to support you in doing this and make your life as easy as possible!
Within your educator account, you will see a 'My notifications' tab, where all key student activities of importance will be logged and reported to you. The number reported here will indicate how many new notifications you have to review:
To clear your notifications (and return the total to 0), click on the 'X' icon next to each to indicate that you have read and actioned each notification.
These notifications are often linked to automated emails too, which will be automatically sent to your registered email address when a notification is raised.
You will receive a notification when any of the following occurrences are logged:
- A student completes an activity that requires manual marking;
- A student unlocks a badge [email only];
- A student completes the same activity three times with a score lower than 70%.
We have chosen these occurrences to generate a notification as we believe that these are moments when your intervention as a teacher can really add value to a pupil's learning experience. Perhaps they need some work to be marked so that they can move forwards with confidence, or need some support with a really tricky concept. Also, it's always fantastic for them to hear a big "Well done!" when they have achieved something significant.
We hope that our automatic notification and email systems will make using EdPlace to support your students an absolute breeze, by bringing to your attention key moments of achievement on an individual basis. If you have any more questions about how our notifications work or about your account in general, please contact our friendly Customer Support Team via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
