To whom it may concern,
Educators today are faced with a student population of unprecedented diversity in skill, knowledge and learning style. Compelled to meet the needs of every child under their tutelage, many educators attempt to differentiate their lessons, assignments, and assessments only to find themselves overwhelmed with extended planning sessions and paperwork. Add time constraints and primitive technology to the equation and what was once a valiant effort to personalize a learning path for each student-group becomes an impossible endeavor.
As a former educator, I found myself facing these obstacles day after day. I needed a tool that allowed me to deliver a truly personalized and engaging experience to each student; one that provided instant feedback into student progression so that I could adjust future lessons plans while the effort of doing so was still impactful.
The innovative Learning Engine in Socrates removes the obstacles and delivers on the needs of educators and students. The Learning Engine guides students along a tailored journey while providing teachers with real-time feedback, reporting tools and the ability to control the curriculum. The game-based learning engages the student, improves the learning experience, strengthens retention, and promotes continued use.
I wholeheartedly recommend Socrates for an NSF Grant so that positive impact of this software can continue to reach an ever-growing audience.
