Frequently asked questions
What is adaptive learning?
Adaptive learning refers to a system that adapts to the ability and performance of the individual. In the case of our digital math portal, all the math questions are thus tailored and continuously adapted to the individual level of each pupil, for each and every math question answered. As a result, all pupils are suitably challenged and motivated at all times, whether they find math easy or difficult. Adaptive learning is an educational method which uses devices such as computers or tablets as interactive teaching devices. The main purpose is to adapt to the unique ability and performance of each learner.
Our digital math portal has a huge question base which forms a solid foundation for adaptivity: the larger the question base, the better the adaptivity. Our adaptive system is developed in-house by our very own IT Development Team and our approach is continuously adaptive. This means that the system responds in real-time to each pupil’s individual activity and performance, thus maximising the individual learning objectives.
What is gamification?
Gamification is the concept of adding game-design to non-game assignments. The reason for adding gamification is to motivate pupils and make assignments more fun and engaging. Our system uses gamification to enhance the pupils motivation through earning points and medals.
What is Active Learning?
Many studies have shown that physical activity in education enhance learning outcomes. This inspired us to create Active Learning where physical activity is combined with solving math questions. 15 figures are placed around the school and its grounds, each with a unique QR code. When scanning the codes with our Active Learning app, the pupils are giving math questions to solve before they can move on to the next figure. In addition, our digital math portal contains plenty of activities which combine in-class physical exercise with math.
