E-BLOCKS PRESENTS A NEW TOOL: Teaching Management System


 
A new tool was implemented in the E-Blocks software, the TMS -Teaching Management System. The TMS is a tracking system where teachers can monitor students and see exactly how each group is progressing or struggling. The system automatically records the group progress by collecting students’ responses, time-on-task, and other performance indicators generating detailed reports on each group of students. This data can be viewed on-screen, printed or exported to spread sheet programs. E-Blocks USA presented this new tool to several US schools and the feedback from the teachers was very positive.
