Trond Kalhagen, Nursery Leader
Spring 2009 the municipality of Askim decided to use the Fronter learning platform at all schools and nurseries. In September 2009 the implementation was completed. It was important for the administration of the nursery that the children could follow a single platform from the nursery all the way up through high school.
Fronter offers children the opportunity to use the Internet in a safe and suitable manner. It is also "interaction channel" for information and communication with the parents. Kalhagen emphasizes the importance of approaching the system slowly. To begin with employees use Fronter to access memos from meetings, forms, templates, plans and similar.
Prestenga developed a questionnaire where staff was asked to say something about their first impression of Fronter. The responses were overwhelmingly positive. Staff is getting basic computer training as well and the aim is for this to be a learning experience that teachers and children can share.
