Overview

The Firefly for Teachers and Teacher Planner apps help teachers stay on top of their work from wherever they are.

When teachers are using the apps, schools see benefits, including:

  • Receiving fewer password requests to your school’s IT team.

  • Giving teachers more control over where, how and when they mark and assign tasks.

With the apps, teachers can:

  • Log in once, without having to constantly remember passwords.
  • Create, edit and assign tasks.
  • Review and mark assignments from students.
  • View their planners and create lesson plans on-the-go.
  • Track student progress, including using the markbook.
