Tweezy Online Ltd
Tweezy Online Ltd have announced details of their latest online bullying product that will soon be available for general release.
Tweezy Bully-Watch is an online solution designed to capture details of all bullying incidents and track them through to successful resolution. This system is unique in that it has features to assist in all aspects of addressing all types of bullying. The product team regard bullying as a three tier problem which consists of identification, investigation and, of course, resolving. There are existing systems for victims to report bullying. There are separate systems to track incidents the school is aware of. There is also sanctioning software for when a bully is identified but the strength of Bully Watch is in bringing all these vital stages together into one complete process.
Amazingly, some schools have been using computerised IEPs for around twenty years now. Throughout this time different incarnations of software have been and gone but really not very much has changed. Finally, a new angle has been added to IEPs by Tweezy Online Ltd with their new online system, Tweezy IEPs.
As well as storing targets together with teaching strategies and the pupils own interpretation of the desirable outcome, IEPs can now be "brought to life" by allowing "Files of evidence" to be attached. Teachers and assisting professionals can now add sound recordings of the pupils speech, video footage of their classroom behaviour, scans of their work and so on within the IEP itself.
This was demonstrated to remarkable effect by taking a look at one young girls IEP. The girl is called Kiera and she is six years old. She attends mainstream school and her IEP had an overview of a speech problem which was being investigated by a medical team and had targets to improve speaking skills which the teacher had marked some progress on. However, in addition to this there were also recordings of Kiera reading from a book during her assessment phase and another recording made 8 weeks later. The improvement in speech clarity is overwhelming.
