„We’re living exciting times both for teachers and the students. eLearning has promised for years to actively change the face of school education but we believe it is just beginning to deliver on the promise. Wand.education™ enables a 360º approach to education in schools, putting together all key actors: teachers, students, parents and decision makers, into a continuum learning process without physical borders. It allows for real-time, deep evaluation and monitoring of the whole process. Teachers are empowered to bring to classrooms pedagogical methods long promised, but never before practical in many schools worldwide.”, says Florin ILIA, a senior consultant for Wand.education™Better lessons faster
With Wand.education™ teachers can create dynamic presentations using pre-built templates such as galleries, mindmaps, flashcards, labels and many more.
One key feature of Wand.education™ is the possibility to import existing slides into the application. As most teachers already have lessons in the form of PowerPoint™ presentations, they are now able to import them into the lesson editor effortlessly.
“At Wand.education™ we know that time is teachers’ most valuable asset when it comes to lesson preparation. This is why we have developed the technology to make content creation quicker than ever before.”, says Marius PRODANA, Product Manager.
“Teachers are not mere consumers of digital resources, they are co-authors and they want to create their own digital lessons, tailored to their students’ needs. With Wand.education™ we believe that we have developed a platform that will enable teachers to create meaningful and authentic learning experiences in a matter of minutes”, adds Marius.
According to several studies, over 95% of teachers are creating their own digital lessons. Teachers need full flexibility when it comes to digital lessons, tailoring learning content for their students’ needs, constantly improving learning activities and catering for different student abilities. By consulting with innovative and successful teachers, administrators, education trainers, and technology officers, Wand.education™ was designed to simplify delivery of educational content. “I was impressed by the range of tools on offer and the ease with which I could work out how to use them intuitively.”, says Dan BUCKLEY, Deputy Head-Teacher in Saltash.net Community School, UK.
As finding the right resources with the appropriate educational quality can sometimes be difficult for teachers, the lesson editor in Wand.education™ includes an extensive library of illustrations, animations, videos, audios, photos and 3D objects.
In addition, Wand.education™ allows teachers to track students’ progress through smart aggregated reports, while providing them with actionable data. Basically, for each lesson delivered to the students, the teachers are receiving either snapshots, or aggregated views to better identify progress trends. The application also supports educators to develop formative assessments activities, correcting misconceptions and reinforcing key knowledge.
As a result, teachers not only can improve their instruction, but help their students how to learn more effectively. Students are encouraged to explore through interactive presentations, games and assessments, while teachers add the creative spark that inspires their curious minds.
The initial release of Wand.education™ will be offered in Romanian and English, with additional locations and languages planned throughout 2017. For more information about Wand.education™, visit https://wand.education About Wand.education™
