With standardisation batching children in a factory-like format, it can be difficult to precisely track each individual’s attainment that goes through school. In a system that measures assessment against expectation a lot of children are unconfident, feel lost, and lack self-worth in a process that may not be in tune to their own interests and ability.
“More than 2,200 young people between the ages of 16 and 25 were surveyed by the Prince’s Trust charity. Nearly half (45 per cent) said that they did not believe in themselves when they were at school. And 48 per cent said that they experienced problems during their school years that prevented them from concentrating on their academic work.
Of these, 46 per cent did not talk to anyone about their problems. Largely, this was because they did not want other people to know that they were struggling. And more than half (58 per cent) did not think that asking for help would solve the problem.
The survey is the eighth such study conducted by the Prince’s Trust. This year, young people’s levels of happiness and confidence were at their lowest level since the first survey was commissioned.”
A personalised digital learning companion, that aims to visualise the journey of a child’s education at a glance during key stages 1–4, in order to celebrate their strengths and to encourage, empower and motivate.
Primarily aimed at children aged 5–16 (key stages 1–4), but teachers and parents also have their own UI in order to set/see feedback and monitor their child’s growth at a glance.
