Education today is a solo playground with the majority of students studying alone. And that’s unfortunate, as multiple studies show the best way to learn is to exchange knowledge with your peers.

But technology can overcome the social and logistical barriers to collaborative learning. In our digital world, bringing students together should be the main focus of parents, educators and entrepreneurs alike.

We Are Smarter Than Me

  1. 1. Learn About the Power of Collaborative Education We Are Smarter Than Me
  2. 2. The Survival of the Fittest Mentality ▪ Our education system conditions us to be competitors, not collaborators. ▪ In this solitary mindset, our questions and our answers are limited. In order to expand our learning potential, we need to collaborate with others. vs.
  3. 3. Working Together vs. Working Alone ▪ When students are brought together, studies show significantly higher success rates. For example, Uri Treisman at UC- Berkeley found students nearly doubled their success rates. ▪ Unfortunately, working together isn’t easy -- social and logistical barriers prevent students from actively collaborating and teachers from organizing study groups. 1.6 1.8 3.5 3.2 *average GPAs of students in study groups compared to solo studiers (at UT-Austin and City College of NY)
  4. 4. The Potential of Technology ▪ Technology can break down the social barriers that prevent students from learning together. ▪ With technology, learning can be open and accessible, collaborative, and personalized to connect and benefit students around to world.
  5. 5. Harnessing the Knowledge of the Crowd ▪ How can companies take advantage of the collaborative potential of technology? ▪ In this session, learn how the growth of mobile devices, relevant data, and open education resources can create an enriched learning experience. Forget expensive textbooks. Open online education resources are cheaper and more accessible. Mobile studiers spend about 40 minutes more studying per week. Using safely protected student data, we can deliver personalized material directly to the palm of a student’s hand.
  6. 6. About Chris Klundt Chris is CEO and Founder of StudyBlue, a fast-growing learning app used by 5.5 million students. While studying computer science and biomedical engineering at UW-Madison, Chris was frustrated with the lack of innovative technology specifically for students and determined to find a solution. He went to work by creating a collaborative, personalized learning app that reaches beyond the limits of pen and paper and improve the studying experience for students across the globe.
