What are the challenges?
Teachers using DC Online from Schoolsupport need to align their lessons to the different needs and abilities of the learners in the specific year groups. Schoolsupport’s mission is to help teachers with preparing their lessons and to offer solutions for this challenge with innovative products.
When learners need to find information via Google, they have no clue whether the results are relevant and suitable for their age and reading level or if they can trust the information. There is also too much noise on the general online platforms. Wizenoze only shows relevant and educational results and therefore offers a perfect solution for our pupils.
The Wizenoze solution
In response to the above challenge, Schoolsupport has integrated Wizenoze's API, Web for Classrooms, into their learning platform DC Online. Web for Classrooms uses Wizenoze’s state-of-the-art readability index to assist teachers with preparing for their lessons. The readability index indicates the reading level of online educational results, and supports the teacher in finding the relevant information for a specific topic at the appropriate reading and learning level of the student. As such, teachers using Web for Classrooms are able to reduce their lesson preparation time.
When students use the DC Online website, they can directly search information in Web for Classrooms. Students waste less time on websites they cannot use and are less distracted by irrelevant information. Web for Classrooms filters online educational information by their own reading level, helping students improve their schoolwork and gain more self-confidence in their own reading skills.
