With our Seating app, which can be integrated with your school's data, teachers can optimise their classrooms so every student is seated in the place that suits them best. Seating plans can be exported and printed in just a click.
School administrators can create Seating templates for the teachers to use. A template is a pre-defined set of rows and columns, as well as desk configurations. For example, administrators could create a template for each classroom, so that teachers will only need to add the pupils on their desks, according to their preferred setup, thus saving precious time!
Make sure to Activate the template once finished! Only active templates are shown to teachers. Templates can be edited, deactivated or deleted by admins at any time.
Teachers can create their own Seating plans for their classes as well as any classes that they are covering. To create a seating plan, locate a class and go to Smart Seating.
This function optimises the seating plan to bring selected student categories to the front of the class. Teachers can pick one of the inclusion groups and bring these students to the front; all other students will then be arranged at random in the remaining empty rows.
When in Edit mode, you have some actions available on the top right corner.
Assessment: (SIMS only) Allows teachers to select 2 pieces of assessment to display on their plan. Only then they can toggle Assessment on their plan.
Duplicate: Teachers can create a duplicate of the plan for that class. This allows them to keep the current plan (including the desks and students) and make minor adjustments to a new one. Teachers need to enter the name of the new plan before the existing plan can be duplicated.
Edit the grid: Allows you to increase and decrease the number of rows and columns. If you have desks and students outside the new grid, they will be deleted.
Delete: Delete the seating plan. All data will be lost, including student notes.
Flip plan view: This will flip the view from the front to the back of the class.
Fullscreen - Fullscreen removes the drag and drop section and the names of the filtered categories. This is a 'safe mode' of the plan that can be projected in the classroom without revealing any personal information.
All seating plans are automatically saved in the Smart Seating screen of each class. You can go back to view and edit seating plans for your classes by returning to the Seating section under your class at any time, including plans other teachers have put in place for classes you are linked to.
You may create several seating plans for the same class, and even use different settings for each. E.g. each plan can display different aspects and assessment results.
