Getting to Grips with… Preferences

Let’s take a look at the different ways you can use Preferences to personalise your school’s account to meet the needs of your students.

Edit Subjects

Under the Platform Preferences tab, you’re able to edit subject titles to what suits your students best e.g., you may want to rename them to colours or animals if you teach EYFS students.

This awesome feature offers lots of personalisation and helps with recognition of subject names – fab stuff!

Edit LevelsHints and Tips

In a similar way to how you’re able to edit subject names, you can ensure your year and academic labels apply to your school and go into Platform Preferences to personalise them.

With Edit Levels, you can change the colours and images to fit what your years use, which is brilliant for identifying which years are which.

Your classes may have different names, not ‘Years’. That’s why Preferences lets you adapt your labels to follow how you refer to them in school.

School/Home Access Options

What’s great is you can choose which features students can access in or out of school, giving you greater control of classwork and homework to ensure students stay on track.

And finally…

Avatar Select is a great feature which makes learning even more engaging! By switching on the new Avatar Select option, you can let your students choose a fun character for their EducationCity login – we love this!
