  1. 1. SynapticMash presentation of the
  2. 2. Solved Two Significant Problems in Education <ul><li>Lack of clarity about what effects student achievement outcomes: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Develop an understanding of what truly works and what needs to be improved </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Measure the change in performance over a period of time </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Understand how different socio-economic groups respond to curriculum </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Access to data and the ability to easily transform the data residing in their systems into consumable information: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Bring uniformity and centralization to the numerous silo’d systems within education </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Provide standards-based data intelligence within the overwhelming sea of potentially meaningful information </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Automate the processes of data translation to reduce the burden on local IT staff </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Now, that we have solved the above problems for Educators, we are focusing on the Instructional Effectiveness and Student Centric Learning: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>LearningQube powers adaptive learning and individualized instruction, allowing each teacher to more effectively educate larger numbers of students </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Improving student outcomes translates to lower dropouts, increased retention and higher levels of governmental funding </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>LearningQube consists of five interoperable modules </li></ul><ul><li>Collaboration: MashQube </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Collaboration and social spaced focused on increased communication and relationships. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Assessment: ExamQube </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Standards-based assessment platform that focuses on educational proficiency. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Classroom: EduQube </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Learning management designed for teachers, students, parents, and other education stake holders. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Operations: StudentQube </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Meeting the business or operational needs of education. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Information: DataQube </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Management of the education environment. Longitudinal data warehouse system. </li></ul></ul>LearningQube – A Platform for Change MashQube Communication and Collaboration Layer DataQube Data Warehouse and Analytical Tools ExamQube Assessment Platform EduQube Instructional Platform StudentQube School Information System DataQube Data Warehouse and Analytical Tools

Broken Data-Driven Instruction Cycle Test Data Assignment Results Teacher Observation Embedded Assessment Student Learning Styles Parent Feedback Student Self-Evaluation Assessment Interpretation Computer assisted interpretation Teacher interpretation Instruction Inflexible Flexible <ul><li>Problems </li></ul><ul><li>Too much data </li></ul><ul><li>Data too diverse </li></ul><ul><li>No data on important metrics </li></ul><ul><li>Problems </li></ul><ul><li>Unproven interpretation </li></ul><ul><li>No interpretation of multiple variables </li></ul><ul><li>Confusing and unmanageable recommendation </li></ul><ul><li>Problems </li></ul><ul><li>Inflexible resources available but unmatchable to needs </li></ul><ul><li>Flexible learning objects unavailable </li></ul><ul><li>No system to manage a true diversity of resources </li></ul><ul><li>No hope of managing such a diverse classroom </li></ul>Key Available and well-understood Partially available and/or poorly understood Unavailable and/or not understood
  5. 5. The Environment Platform provides fully integrated data from the environment of education: observations, assessments, content, curriculum, learning styles, etc to provide data going into the algorithm driving differentiated instruction and student centric learning progressions,.
  6. 6. Teacher Centric, Data Driven, Differentiated Instruction <ul><li>Data driving instruction: </li></ul><ul><li>Observations </li></ul><ul><li>Learning styles </li></ul><ul><li>Teaching styles </li></ul><ul><li>Assessments </li></ul><ul><li>Demographics </li></ul><ul><li>Certifications </li></ul><ul><li>Endorsements </li></ul><ul><li>Curriculum data </li></ul><ul><li>Item bank data </li></ul><ul><li>ETC </li></ul>“ Classroom Operating System”

  8. 8. Individualized Instruction Virtual Instruction Individual Classwork Cooperative Learning Computer Facilitated Instruction a b c a 2 + b 2 = c 2 Based upon individual student aptitude, LearningQube can suggest coursework or enable teachers to adjust instruction. Whether in groups or individually, materials can be printed or presented on connected devices, workstations or video monitors. Teachers can spend their time addressing the needs of their students, rather than rehashing rote materials and paperwork Groupings and instruction are adaptive and can change as frequently as a teacher would like. <ul><li>Typical Standardized Instruction </li></ul><ul><li>In most classrooms, teachers struggle to provide effective instruction to a growing number of students per class. </li></ul><ul><li>Even when break out groups or stations are employed, they are rotational, with each student navigating the same circuit. </li></ul><ul><li>The result is that teachers must “teach to the middle” with instruction only being on target for those that are average performers. </li></ul><ul><li>Many are left behind and others remain unchallenged. </li></ul>With LearningQube, teachers can deliver individualized instruction. Within one class room, students can be broken into groups with learning plans that meet their needs.
