The latest news from behind the scenes at Firefly
Here at Firefly we realise that a successful Learning Platform or school intranet requires more than just a slick, easy to use software platform. We've now been working with schools for over 10 years, and have collected quite some experience about what works and what doesn't in terms of getting users engaged and using the platform.
So we've put together a Learning Platform Owner's Manual, sharing some of those tips - on structuring the system, content ideas, how to motivate staff and students to use the system, and more. At the moment it's targeted at the person or persons in charge of the learning platform at a strategic level within your school. We've kept it general so it should apply to anyone using a modern learning platform. Please do feel free to share it with your colleagues within your school and outside.
We're offering it to the school community completely free. All we ask is that you distribute it as a whole, with our attribution.
We intend this to be a living document, so please do send us any thoughts or suggestions you have so that we can add them in for the next version.
