HoloTracker was created from a growing dissatisfaction with the constant difficulties we encountered in trying to adequately capture and articulate whole-student development. Traditional academic assessments are limited, while other methods such as end-of-term surveys are onerous and laden with cognitive biases. We therefore developed and implemented a solution to this universal problem.
Everyday, educators notice hundreds or thousands of micro-observations that go unrecorded. Yet these represent moments of students’ holistic development that, when captured, forms a fuller picture of their growth.
HoloTracker provides educators with a tool to collect large numbers of micro-observations easily - just two taps on their phone, tablet or computer. Over time, data points from all educators’ perspectives are layered to generate formative reports of their students’ holistic development. Educators get real-time analytics to get fuller insights into their teaching practices. Schools can now track and substantiate their programmes easily, with no administrative burden.
Using HoloTracker, schools can adopt any developmental framework of choice. They can use our HoloMap, well-known holistic education models such as the OECD Learning Compass or WEF Social Emotional Learning framework, or even their own school values.
HoloTracker has piloted successfully at a Singaporean public primary school. Over 18 months, the pilot scaled from 15 to 40 classrooms, with teachers generating over 13,400 observations and using formative reports for parent-teacher conferences.
We are extending pilots across Asia, with a diverse range of public and private schools planned for 2022 and beyond. We are also seeking robust academic validation. Prof. Bebell at Boston College is conducting research on the impact of HoloTracker on teaching and learning in a K-12 context. This research is being scaled up as we enrol more schools in Singapore and globally.
HoloTracker was nominated as a finalist in the Grand Prix: EdTech Firm of the Year category at the EducationInvestor Awards 2020.
