Mapping the Information Matrix within Classroom Learning

Mapping the Information Matrix within Classroom Learning

Media release: May 28, 2014

Illuminating the grey area of individual human learning, Twingl creates maps of online behaviour to assist students and teachers to get more out of the education process.

Twingl's first product, Trailblazer, is an online educational tool. Trailblazer enables students and teachers to build a cloud-based portfolio of resources by collating all their online information in one place. Mapping these pathways is a critical step in capturing knowledge in group environments.

Already collaborating with schools on a prototype product, Twingl is aiming to open up the process of learning to both sides of the learning equation. By tracking online learning and research behaviours, the effect is to amplify the trail of information for students to enhance research skills and for teachers to understand how lessons are being interpreted.

Founding CEO Andy Wilkinson says in a learning environment Trailblazer can highlight who is struggling and who can help whom. "If 90% of the students are stopping at Wikipedia and 10% are going really deep, visibility of this can drive how the teacher personalises the learning."

With Google for Education pushing technology into classrooms globally, over 5000 schools are now using Chromebooks. With Twingl’s primary product engineered to empower students like these, Wilkinson says the potential for widespread application goes far beyond education.

“We’re launching into this sector because of the energy and momentum already happening and the size of the market, which compounds our potential but speaks equally to the impact we can have by driving positive change into classrooms.”
