We are hugely excited to announce that we have partnered with Clever in the US to offer both instant login and automatic rostering, so we can help you save time in the classroom!
Clever is already used by half of US schools and provides an invaluable service to educators by helping them organise, utilize and manage the wide range of technology used in schools and classrooms.
Sumdog is one of the first tools to offer Instant Login with a free app on Clever! Get Sumdog added to your students’ app trays on Clever, and they will only need to sign in to Sumdog the very first time they use it. After that, they’ll be able to log straight in.
Clever’s own research shows that up to 15 minutes of class time can get used up just trying to get students logged in. Our Single Sign On integration, combined with Clever’s unique badges for younger students, mean students can get logged in straight away and put that time into learning instead.
Even better, add on auto-rostering and we’ll link with your roster so that your classes are automatically set up in Sumdog and kept up to date. Students won’t even have to log in that first time, and educators don’t have to waste teaching valuable hours on admin!
We are delighted to be able to offer this service across the US to help teachers spend more time teaching, and students spend more time learning. For us it’s another essential step in our mission to close the achievement gap.
Contact your district administrator to get Sumdog added to your Clever portal!
Pupils across Scotland answered an amazing 16,827,720 questions during our Scotland-wide contest for Maths Week Scotland! Well done to everyone who took part!
It was great to see 4900 teams across 860 schools getting involved and having fun with maths.
Huge congratulations to the winning team at Woodmuir Primary! They came top with an average accuracy score of 94.3%. We were delighted to join them at Holyrood, where Deputy First Minister John Swinney presented their special trophy.
Commenting on behalf of Woodmuir Primary School, Head Teacher Nicola Hamilton said:
“Our Primary 7 pupils are absolutely delighted to have won the Sumdog maths contest. For some of them to get the opportunity to come along to the Scottish Parliament to be presented with their trophy by Mr Swinney is particularly special. They really enjoyed the experience of working together as a class. Considering how many pupils, classes and schools across Scotland took part, it’s a fantastic achievement for them to have won this trophy. We are really proud of them.”
We can’t wait to get involved in Maths Week Scotland again in 2018!
Until then, we’ve got lots of regional and national contests running. Join in for free here.
