Todays generation of teenagers are not only tech saavy but their digital experience and expectations is based on using Facebook, Twitter, You Tube, Vine, Tumblr, SnapChat etc. Music is subscribed to on Spotify or Deezer. Coding is learnt on Code Academy or Code Avengers. Books are read on a Kindle. Documents are stored, managed and shared on Dropbox or Google Drive. Yet schools restricts access to all these cloud based tools and expects them to bring school work in on a USB, ICT means learning to Access and paper books are still the norm. Whilst the digital classroom is inevitable, the existing network infrastructure, approach to the use of technology and processes will simply not enable this. cquence aims to digitise processes in the education system so it is fit for purpose when the digital classroom arrives.
cquence - digitising educational processes
When entering secondary school, each student is given a school planner. Amongst other things, it contains a code of conduct attesting to a joint partnership between school, pupil and parent. he reality is far different. The collaborative process between secondary schools and parents is currently broken. Parents have little understanding of homework given and have limited visibility on their childs' progress, while teachers are not able to make the most of the support they know they would get from most parents if there was a quick and easy way to access them. cquence will enable open communication between teachers and parents about a child's school progress through a digital planner for teachers, parents and pupils. We believe that by bringing transparency via open and ongoing communication, parents will be more engaged in their child's education, the relationship with the school will be markedly improved and with positive (not just negative) updates about the child's progress been made available, this will ultimately aid as well as raise the child standards.
We are looking for partners Secondary schools to have an active input into cquence. As our aim is to build a tool for users by users, we want schools to work with us to build tools fit schools needs, aid teachers day to day and alleviate some of the pressures of bureaucracy.
