What is EduBoard?
EduBoard is a data-driven app that makes digital learning easy for students. It can help teachers identify students needing support with their learning and when targeted intervention is required. It does this by collecting data on student engagement with digital learning platforms and content to produce a score. Targeted analysis provides a visual representation of the data to link student engagement and performance. As a result a teacher can identify low-performing, at-risk students much earlier on, taking appropriate measures to improve learning outcomes and impact. EduBoard uses existing school and college data systems to extract and transforms data into a form readily accessible by both the student, parent and the teacher.
