FileMaker K-12 resources
FileMaker today announced two new resources designed to improve school productivity as well as performance for K-12 administrators, teachers, and technology coordinators. The FileMaker School is an online resource that showcases many innovative examples of how actual schools are using FileMaker Pro solutions that impact school operations, student performance, and professional development. FileMaker School solutions are grouped into six major categories which include student information; teacher desktop; curriculum management; personnel and professional development; school operations; and special education. A second resource, the FileMaker K-12 Advocates program, provides avid FileMaker K-12 users with a live online forum available 24 hours a day, seven days a week for networking with colleagues and helping advance best solution practices within the K-12 field.
FileMaker K-12 Advocates are among the first to receive new education-related materials from FileMaker, and can participate in a range of activities. Those activities include demonstrating FileMaker solutions at educator conferences and events; joining online discussions on FileMaker K-12 related topics; lead or participate in a presentation or training event at an educator conference; participate in FileMaker Web seminars or focus groups; and highlight the successful use of FileMaker Pro in their school or district in a solution story.
