Upon being appointed the Minister of Education of Jamaica, Senator Ruel Reid asserted that parents needed to be more involved in the education and development of their children–in order for teachers to make a bigger impact in the classroom– and that education begins in the home. In order for this to be done, there are a number of strategies that need to be employed, but one thing is still missing: a system that brings it all together. SmartTerm is that system. SmartTerm is a cohesive web and mobile school and learning management system that connects administration, teachers, students and parents.
SmartTerm streamlines schools’ academic and administrative processes, including subject management, financial management, and personnel management, etc.
According to a survey conducted by the Daily Mail, 70% of teachers pull an “all-nighter” to create lesson plans for their students– which is even more time than they spend teaching their students each day. This time can be reduced each year by using SmartTerm to save and recreate content.
Using SmartAlerts, school administrators can notify parents and students of upcoming events and school closures. This is essential. How often do parents and students have to sit and wait for a report on the morning news to find out whether or not school is being held? With SmartTerm, this is a thing of the past.
For the purpose of giving parents the opportunity to be active participants in the lives of their children, the SmartTerm Parent Portal gives parents the ability to follow their child’s progress: grades, attendance, immunization, enrollment, etc., and pay school fees from anywhere.
With the SmartTerm Cares program, select students receive book vouchers, which can be used to purchase books each year. This is SmartTerm’s way of giving back to the community.
Technology is important to the advancement of the Caribbean education system and SmartTerm has taken up the challenge.
