Education Technology Insights | Wednesday, May 11, 2016

FREMONT, CA: Compass Learning, a provider of education technology solutions announces the addition of GoQuest –a differentiation and project-based learning tool –to its suite of online personalized inquiry. Compass Learning’s move to include GoQuest intends to encourage students to explore, facilitate strategic inquiry and critical thinking.

GoQuest uses a differentiation engine to match activities and projects to specific student interests and preferences, providing students access to a database of numerous vetted resources that fit their learning profile. The Renzulli Profiler, which is in-built, allows GOQuest to generate a snapshot of a student’s interests, learning preferences and expression styles. This in turn enables teachers to match content, activities and projects to customize the learning experience of their students.

The intuitive interface of this student-centered tool facilitates the usage of online database, standards-aligned resources that are suitable for children of different levels of ability. Teachers can search the resource database by categorizing search based on topic, grade level, student interests, expression styles and learning preferences, and deliver instructions.

Designed to individualize the process of learning, its embedded differentiation engine provides teachers with the tools to assign, mentor and evaluate activities and projects that meet student learning goals, standards, and interests.  .

Voicing her elation, Eileen Shihadeh, Vice President at Compass Learning says, “I’m so excited to see what we can do as an education community when we are able to pinpoint how students prefer to learn and express themselves. Imagine the incredible growth students could experience when their teachers align projects and activities not only with the material students enjoy and are interested in, but also with the way each child wants to learn. ”
