Whether you teach in a school, college or as a private tutor, everyone recognises that the logistical preparation required for successful teaching outcomes can be problematic. Time and budgets are almost always limited, often leading to the need for shortcuts to be taken; a risky strategy that can harm student outcomes and escalate to serious consequenes for teachers.
Smart Learning tools provide a solution for teachers who need to increase productivity without taking risks that can impact their student performance.
Increase teaching outcomes by improving student engagement.
Decrease time requirements for planning and assessment marking.
Smart Learning tools allow immediate teaching requirements to be managed efficiently while also supporting the bigger picture and needs of individual students.
Identify students who have fallen behind.
Engage intensive assessment strategy without the associated time cost.
Formative assessment allows teachers to understand their students, but is time consuming and difficult to perform thoroughly when time and resources are limited. Smart Learning tools take care of the management for ongoing formative assessment, providing reporting without time investment for asssessment planning and marking. Use detailed insights to thoroughly verify the understanding of students and avoid the risk of slow progress for new topics escalating from students lacking prerequisite knowledge.
Apply effective teaching strategy.
Insights gained from thorough automatic assessment allow lessons to make more impact on student learning.
Teaching strategies are difficult to execute when there are unknown gaps in the knowledge of students. Automatic assessment featues provide teachers with details to reveal and understand specific types of difficulties affecting individual students, allowing for identification of more suitable teaching methods.
Reinforce learning knowledge.
Continuously evaluate student knowledge retention without increasing teaching commitments.
Students need to keep the skills they have learnt fresh in memory by reinfocing their knowledge with regular practise. Allow students to practise their knowledge with automatic evaluation exercises that keep teachers informed of topics that need additional attention.
Immediate gains without long term pains.
Increase teaching efficiency and student productivity without diluting learning experiences or support processes.
Avoid the pitfalls of shortcuts that dilute learning experiences and processes. Make immediate gains through increased efficiency without the need to reduce teaching processes or learning experiences that lead to missing knowledge that are amplified when tackling related course topics.
Avoid logistical nightmares.
Focusing on efficiency means that processes are completed in less time without taking shortcuts that risk increased effort requirements.
Formal teaching processes account for the mistakes that people make, helping to avoid problems of teaching logistics quickly escalating to become serious issues. Use Smart Learning tools to efficiently execute formal teaching processes with less time and resources, avoiding the need for shortcuts that risk serious problems for students and teachers alike.
Nextpoint learning support tools help teachers to manage the logistics of delivering learning programmes based on the Smart Learning model. The learning support tools take care of planning and assessment logistics so that teachers gain more time to invest in teaching their students.
Teachers are able to access quality learning content designed to allow the Smart Learning model to make the most impact with students. Smart Learning content is free for teachers to use in lessons.
Support tools can identify the most suitable content to meet upcoming teaching objectives.
Teachers are able to gain a better understanding of their classes from insights generated from student content interactions. Data analysis is presented in an easy to understand format to allow teachers to make better decisions in their lesson planning and teaching strategy.
Collaboration between teachers and students can be facilitated through communication features of Smart Learning tools. Feedback management allows knowledge to be efficiently shared between teachers and students.
High quality formative assessment allows teachers to understand the strengths and weaknesses of individual students, but can be a costly burden that requires time to prepare and mark. Smart Learning tools allow for benefits of detailed assessment to be gained without the associated time costs.
Release more time to prepare better lessons.
Quickly access ready to use assessment content that can be automatically distributed and marked. Save time from question research, photocopying and repetitive assignment marking.
Understand more about individual student needs.
