As more and more learners use digital resources in their education, they produce increasingly more data form their learning activities.
This is data that the person who are closest to the learner have problems tapping into. The teacher should know about all digital learning activities of their learners.
For the teachers to get knowledge about the digital learning activities of their learners. This information should be managed by the educational institution. When the educational institution manage all data produced by their learners, they decide how this data should be used to provide better education services.
Managing the use of this information are controlled by the learners through consent.
Hypatia Learning was founded in 2017, we have worked with learning technology since HTML introduced forms. We have been active within global IT standardisation in ISO and IEC for more than 20 years.
Our funder is currently chair of ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 36, the global committee that are responsible for standardisation of learning technologies.
A TIL Å
A til Å is an online solution where the learners make an assessment of their own efforts with schoolwork.
The main goal of the service is to achieve an increased degree of in-depth learning and generally better learning for all learners by raising awareness of their own learning and their own contribution to the classroom environment.
The learners must assess their own contribution to the learning environment in the classroom and the learning environment in the subjects they have. They also give feedback on what they have learned and have worked in the different subjects.
The teacher gets an overall and easy overview of the learners´ own assessment.
The service provides an overview of how students assess their contribution to the learning environment and their degree of goal achievement. This assessment is a good starting point for the communication with learners and parents and helps the teacher to adapt to each learner and class.
Parents have access to a comprehensive overview of their children's assessments of how they contribute to a good learning environment, and what they learn in each subject.
This is an important contribution in the collaboration between school and home and to increased collaboration generally among all involved.
Based on global ISO and IEC standards, we develop an infrastructure that informs the learning technology that learners are using where data from the learning activities should be stored. Where this is stored should be up to the educational institution.
When all information produced digitally by the learners is controlled by the educational institution, they can also choose which services will process this data to add value to the teacher, pupil, school owner and parents.
When the educational institution has control over this information, it will also be easier to comply with the GDPR rules. If the educational institution wishes to use the learners´ data in new services, they must obtain the consent of the parents. Since the purpose of using the learning activity data is improved learning, it will be easier for the educational institution to obtain this necessary consent from the parents since they have confidence in the institutions' intentions and tasks.
It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data.

A better tailored learning experience, from analyzing a complete data set of digital learning activities. You get proposed learning resources or activities that fits your competence and learning strategies. You get complete control of all data produced, and how they are used.
With a single view at the dashboard you as a teacher immediately knows how each individual learner are progressing.
The system also provide scaffolding in daily teaching routines, so you as a teacher can use more of your time educating.
With a comprehensive data collection of all digital learning activities by all learners, an up to date, almost realtime overview of how each school, and school-class are doing could be achieved.
With this information, better education for all could be provided.
