About the Socrates Learning Platform for Schools
Socrates is a revolutionary learning platform that dynamically adjusts to the individual learning needs of each student across any educational content. Socrates is already deployed in elementary and middle schools. Socrates is directly available to students, teachers, schools, parents/guardians (including for homeschooling), libraries and museums. Socrates includes various “Command Centers”, including the Teacher Command Center that provides a powerful teacher assistant that lets teachers know when and where each student needs help. The Testing and Benchmarking Module allows teachers to automatically create, administer, grade and compare tests to quickly and with-ease evaluate student progress. The Parent & Tutor Command Center connects the home and classroom. Socrates games and gamification keep the child wanting to play more – the more they play, the more they learn. www.withsocrates.com
