Twine ties it all together for you
Twine integrates everything you need to run your school efficiently and professionally, while improving communication with parents and providing secure online classrooms and groups for discussion and blended learning. Say goodbye to the headaches of tedious spreadsheets and paper forms, repetitive data entry, email distribution lists, and reconciling information from fragmented systems. You’re nimble – wrap it all up with Twine, quickly and easily!
Connecting everyone to academic excellence
Schools are more successful when everyone - administrators, teachers, parents, and students - is in the loop on what happens at school every day. Twine understands what each person needs, and gives them their own unique dashboard into what’s happening. When checking their personal Twine portal from their smartphone, tablet or computer, every stakeholder immediately sees what is going on at school and can easily ask questions and get more information.
Tools like Facebook, Instragram and Twitter have become a regular part of our personal lives. Twine extends the concept of a social network to your school, providing a safe, secure, academically-focused network where staff can work together privately on curriculum and coordination of student support; parents can be invited in to participate in organizing events and lead extracurricular activities; and students can have class discussions, ask questions of their teacher and peers, access materials, and hand in assignments.
Because Twine is social it draws users in. Where traditional stand-alone grade books and portals are only accessed occasionally, you'll find those at your school connecting to Twine all the time to stay informed and engaged.
Doing more when needed
For schools that have additional needs Twine can provide even more, including:
- School Websites: We can provide your school with a professional, responsive website that is managed and updated right within Twine. Adding news items, slideshows, announcements, and calendar events is as easy as sharing an update in common social networks, helping to keep your website current and relevant.
- Advanced Parent Communications: Do you spend hours every term tracking down paper permission slips and trying to coordinate parent-teacher interviews? Our Advanced Parent Communications module provides simple online workflows to simplify these processes and give back more of your valuable time.
- Service Hour Tracking: For schools that have community service or work study programs that require time tracking, Twine can be used for submission, approval and tracking of hours.
