NetSupport today announced that its award-winning solution for classroom management, online safety and device management, classroom.cloud, will link directly to Pobble (a platform that supports the teaching of writing) from its new ‘Connectors’ section for complementary EdTech solutions.

Writing is part of everyday school life and supports the wider ability to communicate – an essential life skill. Yet many schools find the teaching and assessment of writing challenging and are looking for tools that not only inspire and motivate young writers but are designed to save teachers time.

classroom.cloud helps teachers to instruct and lead learning in the school classroom or with remote learners to boost educational outcomes. With fundamental skills such as good writing supporting students’ success and development, its new ‘Connectors’ section allows staff to seamlessly access Pobble as part of a rich ecosystem of complementary EdTech solutions for their school.

CEO of NetSupport, Al Kingsley, comments: “Having excellent communication skills is a standard requirement for life, yet we often find that the skill of writing can often get overlooked as it is not only a difficult subject to teach but finding good resources can be time consuming. That’s why connecting to Pobble makes perfect sense – to help schools to access powerful and creative writing resources.”

Simon Blower, experienced Primary school leader and co-founder of Pobble, said: “Teachers have been telling us for a while about the impact of the COVID pandemic on writing. The percentage of children achieving the age-related expectations in writing has dropped by as much as 21% in some age groups. Pobble helps schools create proud, confident and motivated young writers and improve writing progress across every age group. We’re delighted to be featured on classroom.cloud and support more schools that are looking to develop writing opportunities for their pupils.”

When it comes to integrations, classroom.cloud also links directly to MYCONCERN, CPOMS, Persona Education, Natterhub and many other education solutions– and, for technology management, it integrates with Google Classroom, ClassLink, Microsoft School Data Sync, Clever and Microsoft Office 365.
