Qridi provides teachers with a summary of the assessment information related to the skills of a student. Guardians can also access this information through their own user interface. This makes it possible to bring up different themes in an easy and illustrative way in parent-teacher conferences.
Once Qridi’s features have been used regularly and systematically, the student can understand their learning process better with the accumulated learning data. Teachers should highlight a few selected themes in parent-teacher conferences. It is easy for the student to tell about their learning process with the visualisations.
The student may have been asked to evaluate their working skills, extensive expertise skills or behaviour regularly. At the same time, feedback from peers of the same subject may have been requested. Qridi creates diagrams of the assessments with which the teacher and the guardian can easily highlight different themes.
Journals provide a collection of the thoughts written down or recorded as audio files by the student and the photos and videos related to a certain theme or phenomenon recorded by them. Journals can be used for a variety of purposes: for example to document the learning process of crafts, visual arts and home economics, as a reading journal to support learning how to read, recording audio clips of practising foreign languages, around various phenomena and as a more extensive learning portfolio platform. The journals provide an easy platform to talk about the student’s progress.
The summaries of the task list highlight the student’s accomplishments and bottlenecks of learning in a visual format. They also make it possible to dive deeper into what themes have been processed during the latest period.
Learning can be seen as goal-oriented acquisition of knowledge and skills. Individual learning goals are often set together with the student, parents and the teacher in a parent-teacher conference. With Qridi, students can log these goals themselves using the goal setting -feature found in the student interface. As soon as all individual goals have been set in a class, the teacher can start using them to guide learning by asking students to check what their goals are and to think about ways in which they can actively work towards them. Furthermore, Qridi’s goal setting -feature can be used to conduct regular self-assessments on the progress made towards the goals. The underlying idea is simple: Things you keep actively visual, think about and work on, eventually start to materialise. Teachers and parents can follow the development in their respective Qridi interfaces.
