Full Access to Mangahigh for Distance Learning Maths Amongst COVID-19 School Shutdowns
It’s the word on everybody’s lips and the thoughts on most people’s minds. The Coronavirus or COVID-19 is having an unprecedented impact on a global scale, and particularly in education.
Although children don’t appear to be as prevalent in the current diagnosed cases, we can all agree safe is definitely better than sorry when it comes to school closures.
With hundreds of thousands of schools closing down internationally, and lots preparing for this inevitability, Mangahigh is working with schools around the world on how to support their distance learning initiatives for mathematics.
Full Access to Mangahigh for Schools Impacted by Coronavirus
Being part of the education community, it’s important to us here at Mangahigh that we support all schools and students in any way we can. We are therefore offering full access to Mangahigh during school closures for any schools who are impacted by COVID-19 so learning doesn’t have to stop*.
This includes 100% of our mathematics content and full reporting dashboard for the teachers and a full account for each student so they can continue their learning from home on any device they have access to. With Mangahigh, teachers can assign and assess students’ performance online and exchange messages with their students in a virtual environment.
We are offering this to all impacted schools who sign-up using the link below. If however, during this time, you discover that you may need longer access please get in touch and we can try and support you further.
During this time, we are also offering free training via webinars for any teachers who need help on how to use Mangahigh for distance learning. You can also check out the video and guide below for more information.
How Using Mangahigh Can Help Online Learning
Mangahigh has always been built with an ethos of collaboration, community and competition. These elements are ingrained into both the teacher and student experience of the platform, and we believe these values are pivotal during this difficult time.
Students who are feeling lonely through school shutdowns can compete in a fun and motivational way, and stay connected with their classmates via the leaderboards. The points earned through completing activities also contribute to the school’s total tally which helps their position on the national leaderboard - encouraging a sense of community and achievement for the school.
Speaking to teachers from closed schools, assessment of students’ performance tends to be the biggest obstacle in their virtual classrooms. Mangahigh’s reporting provides teachers with a comprehensive dashboard of both student efforts and achievements so that teachers can continue to monitor and evaluate their progress.
