Logging in shouldn’t be difficult

We have been thinking a lot about how children, particularly younger children access Purple Mash. We have also been listening to your feedback on this issue and as a result we will soon bring you 2Login.

I saw this fully for the first time today when Max, our Creative director gave us all a quick demo. I have included his video alongside his explanation notes of 2Login below.

You could share one username & password across the whole school to login into Purple Mash. This is a great way to start using PM. However, as your pupils get more used to working online using Mash you may want them to have their own online space to save their work.

If you already use a Learning Platform  we can probably integrate with that. But, if you don’t this means having to give children their own individual  username & passwords. This is fine for older pupils, but we understand it can be tricky to get a class of Reception children to login to any site.

We have therefore developed 2Login. It is a simple & secure system to use within the school building.

Pupils simply click on their picture & then type the first letter of their password. 2Login checks it is correct, opens the web browser at the correct page & logs into PM for them.

Pupils can paint their own pics, or use the built-in webcam. All the pics are stored locally on the PC.

2Login will be available from September, & will provide a really simple way to help your younger pupils login to PM

Please add a comment and tell us what you think – we’d love to get your views.

I  hope to be trying this with a school on the next couple of days and I’ll let you know how I get on.

    Just listened to Max and it looks a brilliant idea and even Nursery children would have easy access not just Reception.

    Wow! Loving the simplicity of this system. Most of our younger ones, and our pupils with SEN(even at KS2), have needed adult support to log in successfully. This is going to change things completely for them! So much more inclusive 🙂

    Fantastic idea 🙂
    Would love to have it as a computer login.
    It looks so simple. I would love to be able to login into VLEs via Purple Mash.

    Hope you’ve got this copyrighted – it is going to be very appealling. Wouldn’t I love a two click log in to the sites I use!

  6. Hi Linda
    Glad you like it – its great isn’t it?
    I am sure that as children get older they will not need to use such a system- but for younger learners and for accessibility we really like 2Login.
