Gain 3 Weeks’ Teaching Time In Every Classroom
Children arrive, tap themselves in, choose their lunch and get on with learning.
Schools using it are gaining 3 weeks* of teaching time every year, in every classroom.
* Average figure determined by timing registration sessions before and after
introducing Studybugs Registers.
Similar figures were observed regardless of whether schools were previously taking paper or electronic registers.
“Children and staff think it’s absolutely fabulous!”
It’s So Simple a 4-Year-Old Can Use It
In fact thousands of 4-year-olds use it every day.
“The children quickly got the hang of signing themselves in… within 5 minutes of walking through the classroom door they have put their belongings away, registered and are ready to begin learning.”
“I’m finding I’m getting nearly another full half an hour of teaching done first thing.”
“I have found the self registration to be so effective in getting the children’s learning started as soon as possible. Where previously in the mornings I might not start teaching until 9:15, I am finding that I am getting nearly another full half an hour of teaching done first thing.
“I have also really noticed a difference in the afternoon. Whereas before, by the time the children had settled enough for me to be able to do the register, and then by the time I had completed the register, I could lose just over 10 minutes of learning time. Now, they know to come in and sign in and sit down. They are ready to learn so much sooner! I am now starting my afternoon lessons at just after 1:30, which makes a huge difference as the afternoon slot is only 90 minutes long. SO saving 15 of them is massive!”Show Hide the full quote
See How Much Time You Could Gain
Based on timings taken at other schools.
- We sat in and timed actual registration sessions, over a period of one week, before introducing Studybugs Registers.
- Schools then introduced Studybugs Registers.
- We waited a week, to be sure teachers and children were fully up to speed with the new system.
- We timed registration sessions again, in the same classes, over another week.
Projections are based on average figures across all classes.
“Thank you again for our two extra weeks of learning every year!”
“I just wanted to put in writing how much impact the new self registration system has had on the learning opportunities for our children in Key Stage 1. We had wanted to implement a new guided reading programme in year 2 and the team were concerned about finding the time to devote to it. By introducing self registration we have made it possible to register, including registering dinner choices, and complete a focussed and effective guided reading session by 9.25am.
“The impact on the children’s reading has already been seen, as teachers are reading more often with all the children, and teachers have been able to identify next steps for teaching reading. A further benefit has been on punctuality as parents can see when they drop off their children that they are starting learning from the moment they walk through the door. We have been really happy with self-registration, and the responsiveness of your team to our suggestions and the issues that we (and our children!) have identified has been the icing on the cake.
