KOI SCHOOL - Towards the Next Level of Communication, Organization and Integration in Education

Abstract

Information technology plays a central role in early school education of pupils, since the information society is continuously changing and developing. Facebook, Twitter, iPhone, Flickr, blogs, YouTube, and Google Earth are just some of the new technologies that bombard us from all directions since the genesis of the Web 2.0. Although there is a broad offer of educational software, yet an integrated solution for continuous support does not exist. In this paper, we present KOI, a collaborative school management system, that combines typical administration tasks with document management and social networking features. In our opinion, modern school software has to comprise both, educational software and those new technologies that are particularly popular among pupils. Thereby, private interests (e.g. social networking or instant messaging) and those functions supporting the schooling can be combined.
