MHE t2k DTP App
Time To Know (T2K) has created a breakthrough solution for today’s teacher-led, digital classrooms. T2K is designed to address the main challenges faced by education systems worldwide- disengaged students, widening achievement gaps, students unprepared to succeed in our 21st Century, global knowledge-based economy, and disappointing returns on technology investments.
Time To Know provides a complete Digital Teaching Platform (DTP) that combines software and curriculum into an instructional environment that streamlines the management of interactive teaching, learning, formative and summative assessment in today’s technology-intensive classrooms. The Time To Know Digital Teaching platform blends technology in every classroom format: whole class discussion, small group exploration, and individual learner customized practice. The Digital Teaching Platform also supports asynchronous learning formats as students and teachers can access the platform anytime from anywhere.
A pedagogical approach characterized by teacher-led, student-centered, inquiry-based learning that meets the challenges of next-generation teaching and learning is embedded in the design of the Digital Teaching Platform. The platform supports the use of open-ended tools for student exploration, authentic, performance-based tasks, and teacher-led discussions to enable students to construct meaning, understand concepts and build skills. Central to the pedagogical approach of the DTP is the ability of the teaching platform to provide the teacher with tools to adapt instruction to the needs of individual learners through differentiated approaches to content, assessment, pacing and learning style.
The teacher is empowered by technology to leverage the full teaching-learning cycle (planning, teaching, learning, assessing) in order to deliver exceptional results. Using classroom management, collaboration, and most of all, differentiation tools, the teacher orchestrates seamless and efficient interactions between teacher and students.
The Time To Know platform includes a real-time classroom management tool that can track student progress in real-time and locate resources to address learning gaps. A real-time dashboard provides notification of student progress and alerts the teacher to students who need extra attention and assistance. Ample data from reports and real-time monitoring enable the teacher to focus individual attention on students and address targeted learning needs. Teachers and administrators can access in-depth reporting on student performance against benchmarks, standards, skills, curriculum coverage, and other measures.
The DTP is an enabler and viewer for smart digital learning content. The ability to tag content with pedagogical meta-data coupled with the capability of the DTP to record and analyze learning events based on this meta-data gives the teacher a powerful tool for data-driven teaching. The student also benefits from the unique interaction of the DTP and smart content, by using personal data and feedback to promote autonomous learning and to optimize learning gains.
