a Fitbit for teachers…that measures student engagement!
Research shows that the more students speak in class, the more they learn, and the better they perform on standardized tests. TeachFX has helped hundreds of schools increase their student engagement by visualizing for teachers what portions of class are teacher talk vs. student talk:
Simply use your iPhone, iPad, or laptop to analyze your class, and the app’s artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm tracks your talk ratio automatically, with no extra work from you or an instructional coach. The idea is to give teachers a useful barometer of student engagement you can check every day!
Last year, 400+ schools used the TeachFX tool, and teachers increased their student participation by an average 12.6 minutes per class.
What Fitbit brought to exercise, we’re bringing to teachers.
