Quality planning at all levels with iUgo

Jan 15, 2020 | iUgo

Deputy principal Anne-Maree McDougall took a closer look at iUgo and liked what she saw.
At Mercury Bay Area School in Whitianga, Anne-Maree’s team all use iUgo at different levels to help organise their planning.

Anne-Maree says “Teachers are time-poor. iUgo is the perfect tool for sharing lesson plans and collaborating across teams. It helps us do our jobs quicker and smarter.”
“It’s fantastic for curriculum planning. iUgo’s planning prompts are a great feature that guide you into better planning and new possibilities.”
“As a manager, I can look across year groups quickly to see what’s been covered in achievement objectives. As a team, we can collaborate more easily without the usual barriers.”
Developed by Essential Resources, the iUgo digital planning solution gives you the power.
“What’s important is the quality of the planning not the format. iUgo is a tool that allows real quality of planning – takes you through it step by step.”
