Covid-19 has changed how people relate and do things around the world. We are living in the age of the “New Normal.” During this “New Normal,” businesses have shut down, people have lost their jobs and above all, schools are no longer operational.
The education sector is one of the major sectors that has been hard hit by the pandemic. In Kenya, for instance, schools will remain closed to January 2021. Even then, the government is not sure whether the pandemic would have folded up and left the people in peace.
There is a need for parents, teachers, and learners to embrace technology in enhancing the learning process even as the pandemic continues to bite.
Introducing the MwalimuPlus
MwalimuPlus is an intelligent e-Tutoring solution for students, parents, and teachers and is designed for the Kenyan curriculum.
The system is designed to improve the learning-teaching process and has a significant amount of learning materials and supports for students to be able to solve math questions with no help.
MwalimuPlus provides learning materials in the form of questions to solve, worked-out examples, and videos. While students solve questions the system provided step-by-step guidance for students so they can solve the questions.
Students can request different levels of guidance. Therefore, if advanced students prefer to get less help, in MwalimuPlus they can. The system evaluates and measures students understanding about different concepts in math and adapts the learning materials to students’ needs.
MwalimuPlus allows teachers to enhance the learning process and materials students see. The system assists teachers by providing several reporting tools that can help them to tailor their next lessons to address the misunderstanding and weaknesses of different groups of students.
The reports can also assist students to identify, novices, advanced students as well as high achievers and low achievers.
Parents can use Mwalimuplus to monitor the progress of each child and support them when they need help. To find out more about MwalimuPlus, visit this link.
