Virtual Learning Environment (VLE)
What is a VLE?
A virtual Learning Environment (VLE) is a set of teaching and learning tools designed to enhance a student's learning experience. They allow computers and the internet to be used in the learning process. The primary VLE used at Teddington is Fronter.
What are the benefits of Fronter?
Fronter provides online resources that are accessible 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Students are able to use Fronter to view online books, see what homework they have been set and hand in work electronically. Fronter eliminates the need for UBS sticks/hard drives to store documents at home as it can all be stored online. Other useful benefits include, being used for discussions on current topics for the Student Council and Thought for the Day which includes weekly votes and more.
How students and parents access Fronter?
Through the links on the school website: in the QuickFinder section on the Home Page or in the Student Information section.
In September, new students will receive a Fronter username and password which will allow students to gain access to all areas of Fronter.
As a parent you can access Fronter through your child's account to view the parent room, which has resources that allow you to support your child in getting the best out of Fronter. Useful information includes e-safety tips and advice on how to support your child using the VLE such as 'how to hand in homework online'.
