Welcome to the Kinderpedia connection guide for teachers and educators!
To begin with, we will list the requirements for creating and managing your account:
- an email address
- a laptop / computer with an internet connection
Part 1: Create an email address (if you already have an email address, skip to Part 2).
Go to www.gmail.com and click "Create Account" > "For myself".
Add the necessary information such as Last Name, First Name, Username, Password then press "Next".
Add your date of birth and gender. Phone number and recovery email adress are optional. Click "Next" when done.
Part 2: Creating the Kinderpedia account.
Access www.kinderpedia.co using a laptop / computer and click on the green button
Fill in your email address, choose a password, confirm the password and press "Register".
Select "Teacher Account".
Next, fill in the School / Kindergarden name, Class name, your First Name, Last Name, phone number and click on "Register".
Accept the Terms and Conditions and you're done with creating the account!
Part 3: Inviting children / parents.
Access "Children Groups" located in the menu on the left side of the page and click on the group created in the previous step.
After you click on the group you will see the code on the right side of the page, send that code to the children which are to be added to the group. They will enter that code when they create their student accounts and they will be automatically added directly to the group.
Children can also be added manually.
*Careful! If you have already sent the code to the children and they create their own account, DO NOT add them again using the manual method explained below because a duplicate account will be created, OR inform the children not to create their account using the code if you prefer to add them manually.
To add the children manually, select the group created as mentioned earlier, and under that code on the right side of the page click on the green button "Add Child". Enter the child's first and last name and then click "Add Child" again. After it has been added, it will be listed in the group.
If only the child will access the Kinderpedia account, click on the green "+ Invite Student" button.
For each child, we will click on "+ Invite Student" and besides the first and last names which are filled in automatically, we will also enter the student's email address. Then, he will receive an email invitation to activate his account.
If parents are going to access Kinderpedia, you must press the gray "+ Invite Parents" button for each child.
When you click on "+ Invite Parents" it will send it you the child's family. There you have to click on "Invite Parents", fill in all the necessary data and click on "Add" to save the changes. The parent will receive an email with the invitation.
These were all the steps needed to create the account and add the children!
