On June 29th, ORT presented to the representatives of the Numeric education of one high school of Thiais (Academia of Creteil) the BEACONING gamified and pervasive concepts. In particular by proposing a gamified approach of the lessons , BEACONING will help in motivating students and preventing early school leaving.
It has been presented to the representative teachers in charge of the Numeric education ; Like all other ORT schools, where BEACONING platform has been presented, this very challenging topic is raising great interests in the education sector. The objectives was to confront our existing scenarios and to identify possible new scenarios and later enroll new schools for the small and large scale pilots.
In particular the Maths scenario, aiming at “helping students from High Schools struggling with basic Math concepts” has been largely discussed and first exercises are under conception for that scenario.
