Most K-12 teachers unknowingly spend more time than necessary using classroom tools that aren’t integrated. Digital Promise’s study shows that 74 percent of districts use more than 26 different education technology products. The time it takes to navigate between multiple systems with separate logins, or entering data more than once, can really add up.Teachers’ time is already stretched thin with grading, parent communication, lesson planning, and meeting individual student needs crowding their full days. But integrated tools and processes can help.That’s why PowerSchool has developed one classroom software solution for teachers, combining an online gradebook, learning management system, assessments, attendance, and instruction in one place. This Fall, we’re introducing more ways for educators to connect the classroom in the award-winning PowerSchool Unified Classroom™ solution. Teachers will have more of their favorite instructional resources connected in one central place, reducing logins and administrative time, and giving them more quality time for teaching students.
