Parents/Teachers Guide: Accessing The Web Dashboard

Dashboard Screen 1

As we’ve detailed previously in our Beginner’s Guide, Zap Zap Math has taken our learning ecosystem to the next level by introducing the Web Dashboard. This has been created to aid parents and teachers, by helping them to keep an eye on their kids/students math progress. If you have already introduced your kids to Zap Zap Math, the next step would be for you to get involved as well. Below are 3 simple steps to get you started on Zap Zap Math’s Web Dashboard.

Step 1: Sign Up

 

You will need to register, if this is your first time using the Dashboard. It’s completely free and fairly simple. In fact, you can even use your Facebook account to login. Alternatively, you may sign up for an account using your email. Please select either the parent or teacher option. This measure is in place to ensure the dashboard is tailored specifically to your needs. Signing in as a teacher will enable you to add your whole class in the system and track their progress,for example.

Step 2: The ZapZapCode

Next, you will see a default tab for a Player under the Game Profiles section upon logging in. Here you can add in and edit the details of your child, such as his/her name, grade, age and school. Adding the school’s name is required so teachers can connect to the student’s profile as well. As such there is no need to create a separate account for school use.

This is also where you will retrieve the ZAPZAPCODE. Just copy the code you see on the dashboard. Now, you’ll need to switch over to the game itself. From the start screen of the game, click on the profile icon on the bottom left of the screen. Then, click “Add A New Player”.  Finally, enter the same code you retrieved from the dashboard. This will sync the game profile to the dashboard, allowing you to track and view updates from your child or students gameplay.

Step 3: Navigating The Dashboard

Note that you will have different tabs on the sidebar of the dashboard, depending on which profile you sign up for. The following guide will help you understand each tab on the dashboard, based on each profile.

The Pressing Need for Analytics

As parents and teachers, it can sometimes become very challenging and daunting when trying to understand the issues our kids face in learning. Having performance analytics tools in place like our Dashboard is a great way to bridge the existing gaps between parents, teachers and students. While the kids will have fun engaging with our gamified learning ecosystem, the parents and teachers can actually gain a deeper involvement and understanding about the areas that need improvement, and guide them further from there. In our fast-paced world, having information at our fingertips is a privilege we must never take for granted, but embrace wholeheartedly.
