Finally an application that allows teachers to visually document student learning and report back to parents via email! Designed by teachers, for teachers!
This application works for you and has many customisable components.
Take photos of your students’ learning in action or of your students’ work, attach a learning outcome that you’ve previously entered into the application and then email the information to your students’ parents. It makes the reporting process more efficient for teachers and provides parents with up-to-date information regarding their child’s progress. This is just one of the many convenient components of this application.
You also have access to the following exciting features:
1. Upload your class lists manually or via CSV file. See website for more details on how to create and upload a CSV file.
2. Upload individual student information such as parent contact details, Date of Birth, and other details are specific to your needs (possible to upload via CSV file or manually).
3. Record and document individual student behaviour.
4. Upload your own Evidence/Outcomes/Learning Objectives. It is possible to upload this via a CSV file.
5. Easily access the iPad and iPhone camera by the click of one button.
6. Take photos of student work or student learning in progress and link it to a learning outcome that you have previously entered. You can import photos from your photo library.
7. Email parents the photos of their child with the learning outcomes attached to the email.
It doesn’t matter where you are in the world, this application is customisable to work for you. It assists teachers of infants through to teachers of senior students. This application approaches the idea of student portfolios in a whole new innovate way.
The app is designed by teachers, for teachers!
Join Teacher’s Wire for information and updates:
*Please note that this application only works on the new iPad, iPad 2 and iPhone as it utilises the built in camera on these devices.

To create a CSV file:
1. Open Microsoft Excel.
2. All the class outcomes need to be entered in the first row. One outcome per column.
3. Under the first row you can enter individual student information. For it to upload correctly to the app the information must be entered in the following order under each column:
a. Name of student
b. Date of birth
c. Parent email address
d. Home address
e. Phone number (contact 1)
f. Phone number (contact 2)
g. Other details
# If you don't have information to fill into any of the sections you need to enter the formula ="" (equal sign and 2x quotation marks) in the cell. This is a requirment of the CSV file.
4. There is no limit on the number of students per CSV file. However, each student needs to be on one row and the information needs to be spread over the 7 columns.
5. Save the file format as ‘Comma Separated Values’ (CSV) file. Name the file with your class name.
To upload the file to Teacher’s Wire:
1. Open Teacher’s Wire.
2. On the Class List page click on the CSV button. (top right hand corner of screen)
3. Enter the class name.
4. The file needs to be uploaded from a web address. If you have a Dropbox account, it’s very easy to upload your file. Log into your Dropbox account through Safari or another web browser. Select the CSV file that you want to upload. Then click on 'get link' by right clicking your mouse while hovering over the file. A new page will open. Put your cursor on the blue 'download' button and once again right click with your mouse. Select 'copy'. If you're getting the file on the iphone through safari please make sure that you access their desktop site. If your accessing Dropbox on your phone/ipad you will need to hold your finger on the blue 'download' button for a few seconds and then select 'copy'. Then paste the address into the Teacher's WIre app.
#If the 'get link' button doesn't appear in your Dropbox account it is because you need to change your settings in Dropbox by visiting this link and enabling 'shareable links'.
# Don't use the Dropbox app to get the link to the file. Dropbox shortens the URL when effects the upload of the file. You need the full URL link to the file.
6. Re-open Teacher’s Wire.
7. Hold you finger on the editable section where it asks you to enter the URL to your class CSV file.
8. When you take your finger off ‘paste’ should appear. Click on paste and you should see the URL address appear.
9. Click on done and your folder with you class name on it will appear. All the student details and outcomes will appear when you click on the class folder.
10. This information can be modified at anytime.
