Edsby in Windsor Life Magazine
Greater Essex County District School Board’s 34,000 students’ use of Edsby has been profiled by a local city magazine.
The Autumn 2017 issue of Windsor Life details how Greater Essex DSB, centered around the Windsor, Canada area, uses Edsby to interconnect its students, teachers, parents and guardians.
While teachers in the district get to individually decide how they will apply Edsby in their classes, many use the system to post blogs, homework and assignments, have a class journal, use the gradebook and offer online answers to questions posed by students, parents and guardians, according to the article.
“Simple to use, the tool enhances the partnership between home and school,” says the article, which also quotes the district’s project manager on the effectiveness of the platform:
“It makes parents’ busy lives easier,” notes Shelly Hudson, Edsby project manager for the school board … “Edsby helps you support your children so they can arrive ready to learn,” Shelly says. “You’ll know if they have a test, had homework, require their gym clothes today or if you need to make cupcakes for the bake sale.”
