School owners and Teachers in k-12 schools owe it to students,the continent and planet to make sustainable choices in daily operations. This post shows ways they can use.
As we become increasingly aware of the sad effects of climate change, it's more important than ever to take action to help our continent and then planet at large.
One of the most significant ways we can make a difference is by reducing our use of paper. For school owners and teachers in African K-12 Schools who rely on paper as examination and test scripts, to prepare school bills per term, and send school fee reminder messages to parents and in their daily operations, this may seem like a daunting task.
However, by making a few simple changes, they can help to reduce their environmental impact and create a more sustainable future for students and our dear continent Africa.
One of the sustainable ways to do this:
Choose Digital Tools
This could also be referred to as a school management software. It is an effective way to reduce paper use in African K-12 schools. It offers a lot of advantages over traditional paper-based methods, including increased efficiency, reduced costs, and improved organisation.
Here are some of the aspects a school management software would cover in K-12 Schools:
Attendance-taking would no longer require the manual process of opening a big file and calling out students’ names. School owners can also track students' attendance rates daily, weekly, per term, and more.
Grading and Assessing
For a teacher, grading and assessing can be very time consuming and would require the use of plenty of papers when marking scripts. However, to simplify and streamline this process, a school management software would automatically do this and also provide more detailed insights into students' progress and performance. Teachers can track student performance, topic by topic and subject by subject and know their weak points.
With a school management software, educators and school owners can easily send out SMS and mails to communicate about a child’s day-to-day activity, test and exam results, school fee reminders and automated birthday messages to parents from 1 single dashboard.
In conclusion, as school owners and teachers in k-12 schools, we have a responsibility to our students, continent and to our planet to make sustainable choices in our daily operations. By adopting this tool (School management software) we can help reduce paper waste and create a healthy learning environment for our present and future students.
