Innofactor Skilli is a new way for primary and secondary schools to analyze learning individually for each student. Our application offers teachers information on which learning methods develop each student’s skills best and how different learners have experienced the learning activities.
Building on student self-assessments and data analytics, Innofactor Skilli makes it possible to systematically collect data on learning and use the information for planning teaching, which takes individual needs into account.
With Innofactor Skilli students have the same powerful reports available as the teachers have, of course with the data limited to their own data. This helps students reflect and learn about their own learning by recognizing their own strengths and areas that could need improvement.
Innofactor Skilli produces powerful, yet easily understandable reports for both teachers and students. The reports give information on: - which 21st century skills the students have used
- which learning methods they have used
- how the students experienced the learning
- how much the students have learned
- was the difficulty level suitable for the students
The full potential of the reports can be utilized when comparing the information and by filtering the data. Our flexible filters allows filtering for study themes and subjects. Teachers can choose to view all students or choose to focus on students individually. For example, it is possible to see which learning methods train best a specific 21st century skill for the whole class or for a specific student.
We have developed Innofactor Skilli to be an integral part of everyday school work and made our application very easy to use. It runs in the cloud, works on any device and students can even use their phones to quickly provide self-assessments of their learning activities.
There is no need for new usernames and passwords either! Innofactor Skilli integrates into Microsoft Office 365 and both teachers and students can user their existing Office 365 accounts for login.
Innofactor Skilli fits right in with OneNote for Classroom or any other learning platform. Just add a link to the theme or course from Skilli and students have a one-stop shop for assessing their learning and accessing their learning material. Or do it the other way and add a link to Skilli from the platform your students are already using.
When using Innofactor Skilli students reflect on their own learning and improve their self-assessment skills. Students get more target oriented and also get help on identifying most effective ways to learn and develop new skills.
As a teacher you can get an up-to-date overview of your student’s everyday learning. You can follow up each student individually and see how they use 21st century skills as part of their learning and which learning methods are most effective.
On school level it is possible to identify effective ways to see what is working and what is not. This helps sharing best practices and improving co-operation between teachers. Schools get information on which students need assistance or further challenges to improve learning on an individual level.
