Happy April Fool’s Day! As much of a satire as this might be by today’s standards, it does make me stop and think about what we teach in our classrooms. In reality, if we can think up a gag like this, why can’t we actually create technology that seems so futuristic.
GradeSlam is a Canadian company, based in Montreal. From their website:
Technology should do more than increase the productivity of schooling and the efficiency of evaluating. It should address the discrepancies in academic success encountered by different types of learners who face unique personal challenges.
That’s why we’ve created a suite of tools for schools, students and educators to make every student a successful learner. The service encourages all types of learners to actively and instinctively seek academic help by employing a medium that comes naturally to the modern student – limitless, spontaneous, uninhibited communication through instant messaging.
