There are so many good reasons to implement learning analytics software like Vclassrooming. As we know knowledge is power and if you can gather valuable data, you can gather important information that will give you a good understanding of what you need to do to improve your students test scores and improve your teaching. Not gathering the correct information will essentially guarantee that you will have a classroom full of zombies that are not progressing, not learning, and really bored. Here are a few reasons you should be using dashboards and analytics in your classroom like that ones from Vclassrooming.com:
- Students who are struggling will be
identified. If you can identify your
students early, you can offer early intervention and specialized help. If you can be proactive in your approach you
can often help a student quickly instead of letting them fall through the
cracks. Using tools like Vclassrooming
will give you an edge and early detection for those students who are struggling
so that teachers, parents, advisors and other faculty can jump in and help
bridge the gap and get the students on the right track.
- Teaches kids to self-regulate their
learning, be engaged and reflect on their performance. This system gives kids information that will
allow them see how they are doing compared to other classmates. They will be able to identify where their
strengths are, and where there is room for improvement. When you make this information available to
students, you empower them to self-regulate and take a proactive approach to
their learning and performance. You also
give them the knowledge of which areas they can work on, which will give them a
sense of accomplishment.
- Using Vclassroom gives you the
opportunity to really see how individual students engage in discussion
forums. You’ll be able to assess which
of your assignments have the most impact and create the most engagement for
your students. It gives you an entire
online environment in which to see how much and when your students are
participating. You will be able to
create more experiences like the ones that are working, and less like the ones
- Institutions are able to better see
if any of their academic or course environments are creating barriers to
success for the students. It gives a
very clear picture of student performance across different parts of the same
course, which is highly valuable insight.
Many schools see a large variance in performance between students that
are taught in school and in person vs. those who are taught off site
online. These are the types of things
you will learn by implementing Vclassroom.com dashboards and analytics.
- These learning analytic tools increase
the accuracy and efficiency of institutional reporting. Because all if this information in accurate
and free from error, schools are able to start using the information provided
in different initiatives that will further help their student population. These tools give the school a wealth of
real-time, correct information that gives them insight into things that they
weren’t even trying to track in the first place. For example, if you can accurately see the
attendance of students- you can then implement different early interventional
strategies across the campus (or several initiatives) and then see which ones
have the best track record for getting students back on track.
- These tools allow you to assess
which program; course or instructional design is the most successful for your
students. You are better able to design
your programs, and meet your curriculum or program goals with targeted
- It also gives you the ability to see
which tests or assessments need to be changed or revised. You may have some that correlate strongly
with student success or there may be others that correlate strongly with course
withdrawals or poor performance.
- Your faculty members also gain
valuable insight that will allow them to develop their personal teaching or
discussion styles. When they can see
what student engagement looks like in their classroom, they are better able to
adjust when needed. You want your
faculty using instructional design practices and execution tactics that have a
high impact for your students.
Vclassrooming.com will also give institutions information that will
allow them to access the success or failure of their faculty development
- Students will improve their learning
behaviors if they have access to the right information. If they can see early on whether or not they
are doing well, they can adjust their approach.
Having detailed information for the students as well as suggested
actions that can be taken to get them back on track and improve their
performance, gives students a way to be empowered and take part in their own
- Using this technology will basically
ensure your students think you are cool.
Let’s be honest, that’s the most important thing anyway- the validation
from a child. 😉
Kangaroo Kids Pvt. Ltd. (KKEL) is
one such institution that is talking advantage of Vclassrooming and the
dashboard and analytics provided. They
know that digital learning environments can offer tools to learners that have
the highest capacity to improve performance, engagement and test scores. By utilizing these technology solutions, they
have been able to help students improve their skills, take part in their own
education and improve faculty/student interactions. They have also found that their faculty has
been able to overhaul their teaching interactions and the support they give
their students because they have been using the technology that provides them
with such clear information. The
teachers are able to tailor their interactions to the student’s individual
needs and address any gaps that may have existed. They are busy helping students build their
confidence, create a community of parents, students, staff and faculty, and
give the students every resource possible to help them do their best. Because of their initiatives, they are seeing
continuous improvement both in test scores, engagement and student morale. They have found that their reporting and
statistical information collected is achieving better learning results. They are able to see which programs and
initiatives work and which ones don’t.
Both instructors and students are more engaged, focused and aligned with
the schools goals for academic achievement.
Because of their innovation and inclusion of technology in this manner,
they are poised to be one of the top schools in India, with the highest test
scores and engagement.
