Interact with your students independently of the internet
Internet technologies have lately developed to the level of vital necessity. On the one hand, they give us flexibility and convenience. But on the other hand, a school classroom is a place where teacher and students must focus in a didactic process with no destructions.
Have you ever asked yourself a question like: "Why should I interact via the world wide web in my own classroom, when my own students are sitting in front of me? Can I do without it?" If this question came to your mind, ACADEMUS is definitely your answer.
Nowadays taking an innovative approach to lesson delivery that offers “creative” thinking and interactivity is a must for any classroom. Using Academus CRS, the learning process is now based on student Interactivity.
Instead of just lecturing about solving equations or unit conversions, a teacher uses an interactive board, which makes all things vivid, virtual, iconic, realistic and easy for presentation. Then he takes 2-3 minutes to pause and interact with the students. Posing simple or smart questions on the interactive board, the teacher can immediately estimate the comprehension level of the last presented concept and if the students have understood clearly and certainly the main concept.
This is the Interactivity offered by Academus CRS. In 2-3 minutes the teacher can get a clear picture of students’ understanding before moving on to the more detailed level or another related subject. The teacher does not only get the classroom pulse at any minute but also keeps it in records and evaluates statistically the overall performance per student, per subject, per lesson, per annum, etc.
Most existing SRS systems use remote clickers, which until now have been an expensive approach based on closed architectures and proprietary platforms to create quizzes.
The new SRS platforms are focused mainly on interaction through Internet and Cloud computing platforms and do not offer a personalized classroom control system, where the teacher and the students are united by one local Wi-Fi classroom network. New SRS systems cannot leverage commonly used off-shelf tools for ad-hoc presentation building based on teacher’s own curriculum and quizzes (i.e. using off-shelf software such as MS Office Word or Power Point, Open Office, html, etc.)
Instructors need an easy tool for teaching, presenting, interacting and evaluating their work and their students’ work, independently from any internet-linked cloud computing. A tool that is available in a real classroom, and not in a virtual classroom, with all the benefits of a modern database. A tool that is capable of creating drill down reports to empower the teacher to efficiently evaluate his classroom performance and to allow him to create and customize his lectures both at work and at home the way he needs.
ACADEMUS CRS is the best solution for classroom interactivity offered at low cost compared to any solution existing in the market, and offering more than a student response system, but a real Classroom Interactivity and Management system.
