MyEducation - Personalised education for the future

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.
My solution is 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.

The image below shows an example of progression for a child who studies English over the four key stages. At a glance, the student and teacher can see where their strengths lie.

Tasks that run alongside curriculum for each subject. These aren't mark by percentage as to not measure child against expectation. In turn letting the child more freely, leaving them more accomplished and determined.

A feedback system enables students to get better feedback as they go, rather than at select points in the academic year. The companion also aims to guide students through their academic careers through looking at where their strengths lie and providing suggestions on those.

Teachers and parents can also view their child's progression. Teachers have a live view to keep up to date, whereas parents have a one week update so they don't become overbearing.

Upon leaving year 11, students are given a poster showing their overall journey. It doesn't show individual subjects as it's about recognising that whilst every student has their strengths and weaknesses but it's these roots that make you who you are.
