Qridi is a digital platform for learners and teachers, which helps schools sustain a new type of an assessment culture. Qridi was developed to create an easy-to-use tool that would enable students to plan and monitor their learning while using this journey as a means to motivate and inspire learning.
From the very beginning, Qridi has been developed in close collaboration with teachers and learners at schools and universities. A factor common to all the tools available at Qridi is a visual approach that makes learning and progress visible. The resulting description of the learning journey helps students understand their learning better and target their efforts towards their goals. With Qridi, and under teachers’ guidance, learners practice self and peer assessment skills, learning skills and other important future skills to help every child find their strengths.
For the teacher, Qridi is an excellent work organisation tool as it allows to store and present data with a wide range of possibilities helping educators direct their efforts according to needs. For the work community, Qridi introduces a common language and operating principle, harmonising the school’s assessment culture. There is also a management level user interface, which can be used by principals and heads of local education to implement skills, values and goals of their municipalities or schools. They can also monitor impact and progress on a broader scale. Cooperation between the school and home is also promoted through a separate interface developed for parents.
With the challenges caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic, Qridi proved to be an excellent tool to organise remote learning and the level of activity multiplied 30 times. A new task card function was developed to help teachers deliver tasks and learners submit their resources. In near future Qridi plans to scale up internationally and develop Qridi further to serve learning and teaching even better.
