GOALS

Aecern Data and Collaboration Hub is a tool for students to collect data such as photos, audio, location and text through their mobile devices, and to colloborate with peers and teachers to make further findings from those data.

The product was built to enhance student’s data and collaboration skills through collecting data during learning activities such as observing the local ecosytem.

APPROACH

Teachers first log in to Aecern Data and Collaboration Hub website, then add students into a class. They also choose an avatar for the student to identify themselves when logging in.

In the “Instructions” section, teachers can assign a lesson for their class. They choose a mobile app for the students to use and insert detailed instrcutions. The apps are created by Aecern and it’s partners for different learning activities such as counting, discovering nature, and tracking meals.

Students log in to the website using the same account as the teacher’s and choose the avatar appointed to them. They can see the lessons assigned by the teacher in their Learning Portfolio. If a mobile app is assigned in the lesson, the student then downloads the app onto their mobile devices to collect data during the learning activity. For example, in the “My Ecosystem” app, students can choose from a variety of functions such as “Animal Signs”, “Plant Finder”, “Weather conditions”, and follow the instructions to take pictures, record sounds, collect GPS coordinates, and insert text.

Afterwards, teachers and students can both view the data collected from their mobile devices on the website. If the student chooses to share his/her data to the public, then the teacher can design activities for the entire class to discuss based on data they collected . Additionally, Lessons and Resources can be shared between teachers for use in their own classrooms.
