I suggest making ( how to guide ) as a video, please
I would love to be able to change my username without creating another account. I think it would also be a really good idea to introduce something that students can upload stuff onto and share with the class or maybe see each others posts on task I have set using tes teach?
Thank you for your suggestion. You can change your username without creating another account. Please can you send an email to the Customer Services Team via firstname.lastname@example.org? Don't forget to include your current username, the suggestion for your new username and the email address you registered with.
With regards to your suggestion, can you be a bit more specific about what type of work students could upload and how this would be useful for teachers? Thank you.
Like if it had a space that's something similar to padlet - google that if you want to know more about it, worth looking into! It would help teachers incorporate and engage student with technology and to provide the students with feedback, easier to keep track of how much input they have put in on tasks too
Thank you @Teacher-in-Training42 for explaining your idea.
I agree this has happened to me a few times too, in other sections too. Like if they don't agree they'll just put a really stroppy response or something sarcastic, which is quiet rude.
it would be helpful, cause less confusion, if post can't be quoted until they are unable to be edited. On a recent post, this did result in a dispute, which could be avoided if this was implimented.
I also think it will be a good idea if on peoples home page tab they could post an educational status..like a bit like twitter. This might encourage people to follow each other more and its a more informal fun way to communicate teaching.
It's loud rudeness you need to worry about ...
What do you mean? are you disagreeing with me or agreeing?
Hello, thank you @wanet and @Teacher-in-Training42 for your suggestions.
Any chance of a forum for support staff?
Thank you for your suggestion. There is a forum for teaching assistants here. Are you talking about other support staff with responsibilities for admin or other duties? There was an administrators forum on the old platform, but if there is demand for something similar to appear on this platform then it's certainly an idea we would be willing to consider.
To help authors update their resources without searching for individual resources would be great. At the moment if I want to change my prices or edit something, I have to search through a long list or type in the resource name to locate it. There is a My Resource section, but this is not actually my resources - just ones that I have purchased. Something similar would be great.
Pls ignore this suggestion, after all this time of using the site, I've just accidentally found a suitable way of doing just this, typical!
Thank you for letting me know @Kazg1.
Please bring back the ability to sort/share lessons by grade level. I have over 200 lessons. It takes forever to scroll through them to find the specific one I want to use. I know I can put it in google classroom but - I make them before I teach them, sometimes I add on to them and change them for certain classes.
Thank you @sarahmatthews-bs-35 for your suggestion.
I'd love it if there was a place dedicated for pastoral queries/topics. I know it's a bit too broad to go under Subjects but it would be great to have a place where people could ask/answer questions related to this important area
What about allowing forum members to comment on the articles instead of requiring a different log in though social media? You might actually get a few more comments then and it would stop Rosalind having to duplicate the articles in the forum!
