How does your innovation work in practice?
Formative Assessment functions:
-Set out student personals projects: information about his personal life project. Teacher can know the student's details and design personalized activities;
- Getting performance metrics: Evaluation metrics are available allow a teacher to “quantify” and “qualitative” student action;
- Checking the history and the progression of studies: registration and monitoring of pedagogical actions. These data can be accessed by the teacher, student and parents, in order to closely follow the educational development.
-Gameplay of classroom: As the scoring happens in the system, a reward create a ranking of the TOP 7 (the top seven students in the class) and motivate the students through achievement medals and the threat and possibility of defeating a master of knowledge;
- Challenge: the system has a field for creating and launching challenges for the classes, where students need to unite in order to defeat a boss.
