The Firefly Student Planner app is available for iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and now for Android. It allows your students to access your school timetable and homeworks from their tablet or smart phone. It synchronises their timetable automatically from your MIS, including SIMS, iSAMS, Facility, Schoolbase, PASS and more.
As soon as a teacher sets a homework, sends a message or recommends a bookmark it is pushed to the device keeping all of your students up to date. Imagine a homework diary that teachers can write into, remotely! Students can also add their own manual tasks and optionally associate them with particular lessons and teachers.
Students log in using their network username and password and this then also provides them access to their Firefly dashboard and bookmarks without having to log in again.
To start using the app you will need to know your school's code. You may need to ask your school's IT support team if you're not sure what this is. You will then be shown a standard Firefly login screen and should enter the same credentials you use to connect to the school's Firefly site. Once you're logged in your timetable and tasks will start to download, this may take a few moments.
Just e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need any help using the app or have any suggestions.
