Bookwise

An immersive application for students to learn in a different and collaborative way. I did this by breaking down the barriers that are created in old fashion/outdated language and removing shyness as a factor in learning. By downward convergence it would make it easier for students to better grasp the text as there is less of a learning curve. Another goal was to make taking notes as intuitive as pencil and pad hence removing another barrier of thought process. Concept now been proven, scroll to the bottom to see.

Insights

The education system is flawed; everyone learns differently but get taught the same. Being an introvert or extrovert shouldn't play a factor in learning nor should the slow learners limit the quick ones. I aim to solve these problems with the implementation of:

1. Collaborative learning
2. Using technology to aid teachers and students
3. Interaction to be intuitive as possible

Dashboard

The home page; first point of contact with the students. 
The pupils are shown their timetable alongside a profile card listing the most important details e.g. current stats, tutor, house block and on the other side contact info of kin. Below is all the subjects the individuals take at school; allowing quick access to classroom materials. Then beneath that is two sections; one the upcoming events tracker, giving you information such as due date for homework and progression of the certain piece of work. Second; showing all the groups the students are assigned to.
