Student-driven learning with Schoolshape

Previously, teachers using Schoolshape must select activities for students to complete and set them as tasks, which then appear in the student's todo list.  While this method is still available, students may now also browse the library and select their own activities.  When they complete and hand them in, they appear on the teacher's home screen.

You can now simply tell students to go to and select their own activities.  This makes it easy to offer additional activities to gifted students and to give responsible students more control over their own learning.

If you do not want this facility available to your students, you can turn it off from the Admin->Subscription screen by clicking 'Edit'.

We have also updated the teacher's home screen to allow for student driven learning, and to make accessing many frequently used functions such as the markbook easier.
