MarvellousMe has today announced a collaboration with Maths Circle Ltd, providers of award-winning maths learning programmes Times Table Rock Stars and NumBots, to provide schools with a cutting-edge pupil rewards scheme, which puts the power in the hands of teachers to recognise and communicate progress achievements to parents quickly.
The MarvellousMe app helps teachers to immediately highlight to parents any positive rewards their child has received in school and delivers that information straight into the hands of parents to their smartphones. MarvellousMe is an app which allows teachers to communicate with parents or carers positively. Primarily aimed at early years and primary settings, MarvellousMe was created by a disgruntled dad who wanted to create positive conversations with his children about what was happening at school.
The collaboration brings MarvellousMe, currently used to communicate to more than 200,000 parents across the UK, together with, Queen’s Award-Winning company, Maths Circle Ltd, creators of Times Tables Rock Stars, a fun-filled interactive maths programme used in over 14,000 schools worldwide, that helps pupils learn and recall their times tables.
Adrian Burt, Founder of MarvellousMe, said: “Many teachers are naturally worried about pupil’s self- esteem and how to manage remote learning. With MarvellousMe, teachers can easily send work home and provide pupil rewards for good work remotely, helping to keep pupil morale and outcomes high. This relationship is perfect for schools using Times Table Rock Stars and/or NumBots as the personalised badges are a real motivator, helping children to get back on track as quickly as
“Our collaboration with MarvellousMe gives an easy way for teachers to reward pupils for their achievements on Times Tables Rock Stars and NumBots. Delivering reward badges electronically and instantly is a great motivator for pupils to give that little bit of extra effort.” Bruno Reddy, CEO of Maths Circle Ltd.
The MarvellousMe app provides teachers with a safe, GDPR compliant, way to contact parents and share positive news on their child’s progress, as well as giving bright, colourful reward badges which are sent home to the parents.
“Engaging with parents today isn’t about me sending a letter home anymore; it’s about contacting parents in a familiar format. In the age of one-touch tech, should we be giving out paper stickers? Technology, like MarvellousMe, means that we can have quicker and easier ways to deliver rewards and messages to parents and carers instantly. Users can invite parents, carers and grandparents to sign up so that they can share in the good news, a brilliant addition to help prevent loneliness in the current climate.” Mrs Pierpoint, Heronswood Primary School.
