Learnsprout, put your ed data to work

By | Knowledge Economy | No Comments

Teachers and education professionals often have access to a lot of data on the students. Sometimes even they have collected it over the years. But most of this data is never actually translated into useful information.

Learnsprout cleverly addresses that issue and helps educators put their data to work. They can provide information on college readiness, on attendance awareness or student’s health, for free! It is very simple to connect, there is a very high level of security and analytics available at a state level.

Learnsprout paves the way to a better managed educational system and shows that data is only important because of the information it contends and that the key to data is the usage you will make out of it.

NikoNiko, imagine if applied to learning

By | Knowledge Economy | No Comments

NikoNiko is a new app enabling you to measure the mood of everyone in your team. It facilitates performance management.

Imagine if a teacher could know about how the students feel. It would be easier to form groups, to identify why a student is learning more slowly on that day, etc. Educators would be able to follow up on students needs more closely and the classrooms atmosphere would improve as well as their degree of concentration when learning.

Emojimo, imagine if applied to learning

By | Knowledge Economy | No Comments

This is the first post under the category “Imagine if applied to learning”. The objective of these posts will be to present you with models that could be used with a teaching/learning purpose. Maybe some of you will want to take the next step… So here comes the inspiration!

Language barriers are a big problem when it comes to teaching and learning because some interesting material is only available in a certain language and translation costs are very high. In Cambodia for example, teachers have to translate some passages of interesting pedagogical material in English to Khmer. The problem is: certain words don’t exactly translate and the Khmer language, as we previously mentioned, is very figurative and doesn’t really allow conceptual thinking.

Well imagine if we could speak with images. Certain images are indeed recognizable by anyone on the planet and could very well substitute words. So here is an app doing exactly that:

Maybe we could now use it for teaching material?!
