PE teacher app Reggie® to be showcased at Association for Physical Education National Conference
Published by Hayley Enright for Livewire Public Relations in Education
Student registration app Reggie® will be demonstrated at the Association for Physical Education National Conference (AfPE) on Tuesday 8th July 2014.
Reggie®, part of the Contact Group portfolio, allows teachers to take the register anytime, anywhere using their phone or tablet, and communicates directly with schools’ Management Information Systems.
It is especially popular with PE teachers who are often out and about and require a portable register. If the device is out of range, the app syncs when a connection is made.
Designed to meet Government standards of online security, Reggie® requires a secure log-on via username, password and school ID. Data transmission is fully SSL encrypted.
Commenting on Reggie®, Andy Whordley from a secondary school in Bromsgrove said: “Currently every PE lesson is covered by Reggie® – it makes the teachers’ lives so much easier”.
“Registers are often taken in the changing rooms so the class is split in terms of girls and boys. Both teachers can use Reggie® to quickly take the register so that the attendance is recorded for one class, allowing them to get on with their lesson.”
“Alternatively they can take the register on the move (as PE teachers usually are!) and transmit it via wifi, saving time.”
Stephen Clarke, MD of Contact Group said: “We are delighted to be involved in the AfPE National Conference. Reggie® has already proven to be a hit so we are eager to show more PE teachers how it can help them focus on what’s most important - teaching”.
The conference, a must for all physical education and school sports professionals, is called ‘Actions and Impact’ and focuses on the difference physical education and school sport makes to whole school improvement, pupils’ health and wellbeing and physical development.
