Simple tweaks can improve student and teacher performance
Re-thinking Education @ U of M
The University of Minnesota Challenge
Engineering study groups, 3 times over the course of the semester, will improve:
+ student performance
+ teacher engagement
+ student’s preference toward smarter study groups going forward
Group involvement, now easier than ever.
The UMN classes were re-engineered, as shown in the video. Note that NO other interventions were taken in order to prove the impact of just tweaking study groups.
To do this yourself, here are our current Quick Connectors. Leveraging research, machine learning and social graphs, we are continually building new connectors to address intelligent team creation needs.
Education and networks will forever be linked
“Amazing results” 4.3 out of 5
According to industry survey standards, ‘Good to Very Good’ correlates to about 3.7 out of 5. These outstanding results (albeit against a small sample) are grounds for further analysis about what would drive students in their major to select classes that use intentional study groups.
