Using Ayoa in Education: case study from primary school teacher Timothy Butt

Ayoa | Using Ayoa in Education: case study from primary school teacher Timothy Butt

Timothy is a busy executive STEM teacher for a primary school in Sydney, Australia. In charge of a number of duties, day-to-day, Timothy can be found running extracurricular clubs, handling eLearning coordination and cybersafety within his school – all this is in addition to studying for his Master’s degree. Timothy discovered Ayoa (previously DropTask) whilst looking for somewhere he could manage all his tasks in one place. From powerful task prioritisation to time efficiency, here’s how Ayoa works for Tim.

“Before using Ayoa I found there was a huge gap between my email and the tasks I needed to get done, using Ayoa has allowed me to fill that space. As soon as I receive an email I send it across to Ayoa, where it can be scheduled based on my priorities. Ayoa has stopped me from trying to do everything at once. Instead, I can focus on my most pressing tasks and use the Canvas View to see an instant overview of my priorities.

I wear many hats in my role. I am a STEM teacher, I run computer coding clubs for students and coordinate eLearning. When you consider that I am also completing a Master’s degree, you can imagine things get a bit hectic. Working in Ayoa enables me to categorize and prioritize these many duties.

Ayoa offers more engagement than any of the alternative software solutions I’ve come across. It moves far beyond basic, linear structure; in the past, I have wasted time using tools where I have to organise priorities into various folders. The drag and drop functionality of Ayoa is far more usable and time-efficient. Everything about Ayoa makes it well-suited to the educational sector!”


2 years on:

We caught up with Timothy since his case study to see how he’s been getting on with Ayoa. Here’s what he had to say!

“I am so happy with your product for the last two years. Every improvement you make I notice, I use the app across all platforms, and I see the benefits in all platforms.

Two years on, my life is better because of your product. Gantt timeline saved me and I use your mind map tool for all of my university essays for my masters. Best mind mapping tool ever. The iPad drop calendar function is phenomenal. I notice the improvements you are making and fine-tuning. The email to task function means I have a zero inbox and the cloud functions and Google Calendar Integration are amazing.

Ayoa is making a difference in my life and managing it – thank you!”
