Brief

Find a problem and solve it in 6 weeks. The problem: the education system is flawed; everyone learns differently but get taught the same. Being an introvert or extrovert shouldn't play a factor in learning nor should the slow learners limit the fast ones.

Solution

Create an immersive application for students to learn and share knowledge in a collaborative way. To break down the barriers that was set by old fashion/outdated teaching methods; making it less liner and more collective. I set out to solve these problems with the implementation of:

  1. peer-to-peer learning
  2. using technology to remove language and shyness as a factor
  3. make it intuitive as pencil and pad

dashboard

the home page; first point of contact with the students. the pupils are shown their timetable alongside a profile card listing the most important details e.g. current stats, tutor and house block. below are all the subjects the individuals takes at school; which allows quick access to classroom materials. then beneath that is two sections; one the upcoming events tracker, giving you information such as the due date for homework and progression of the certain piece of work. second; showing all the groups the students are assigned to.

profile

teachers share some similar elements as the students such as the timetable and homework. the file system for each class taught is shown along with the students in the class. at the bottom is the controls to take over the devices in the classroom, and this is used to demonstrate and monitor work. the right image shows all the active devices in the classroom that are in use.
