Tracking feature tracking quite nicely, response-wise

Walkthrough of our new tracking feature, with Irish accent

Long time visitors to the blog might recall the occasional self-congratulatory reference to the new tracking feature on our forthcoming ActiveTeach software. What the hey, we think it’s pretty nifty.

ActiveTeach puts the textbook up onscreen for whole class teaching. The new tracking feature enables the teacher to gather information on the class response to every single activity or exercise, with, oh, about 5 seconds total effort per lesson. A tracking screen then shows topic status, traffic-light-style, and it’s dead easy to see what needs attention. Or indeed, simply what topics you’ve covered. In a future world, this information would then be beamed direct to your brain, but that’s Phase 2 territory for now.

Most importantly, teachers we’ve shown it to, “get it” instantly. The response has been so positive, we consider the tracking feature now worthy of the ultimate accolade: a screencapture walkthrough that explains what we’re actually talking about.

    I really like this tracking feature – it makes life so much easier and allows you to go to the key areas when revising etc. I am going to show it to my HoD.

      Thanks for your kind words!
      Have held off replying until we sent out this morning’s post (maybe you saw it?) We’ve developed a tracking spreadsheet that works specifically with our Assessment Pack: the Class Progress Chart. Teachers who’ve bought the Assessment Pack should find it v useful – it gives feedback on how to set students at the start of GCSE. It also flags whether students’ test results through the course are measuring up to their target grade.
      D.H.
