Ziplet has been selected to participate in the Global Victoria EdTech Innovation Alliance. This will see their solution tested at Kingsley Park Primary School in Victoria, and Foyle College in the United Kingdom.
EduGrowth and Global Victoria have officially selected Ziplet for the Innovation Sprints, as part of the Global Victoria EdTech Innovation Alliance.
The aim of this program is to enhance the global reputation of Victorian EdTech and education, and provide an example for the Australian EdTech ecosystem of the opportunities available when this testbed model is implemented.
The Alliance will see the selected Innovation Sprints deploy Victorian EdTech solutions both in Victorian and international education institutions and schools. Over 26 weeks, the Sprints will be overseen by an independent researcher appointed to endorse the Sprint testbed design and validate the efficacy of the solution being trialled.
All 9 of the chosen Innovation Sprints exhibit a clear alignment with the Alliance objectives and are committed to transforming teaching and learning experiences around the world.
Ziplet Innovation Sprint
This Sprint will explore how Ziplet can provide teachers with the tools and support to regularly gather student feedback for a data-informed approach. The aim, through this actionable feedback, is to improve student experience, learning outcomes and teacher practice.
Student feedback is a low cost, high impact approach to improving teaching and learning outcomes. Research suggests best practice feedback is regular and low-touch (small question sets). It helps teachers proactively understand student progress, and captures information less likely to be shared in conventional teacher-to-student settings. Through deploying their Ziplet solution, this project aims to measure its efficacy.
Ziplet makes gathering, reviewing, and responding to student feedback quick, and easy. Ziplet is used in over 50 countries, 10,000 institutions globally, by teachers in schools, vocational training institutions, universities and corporate training environments.
Teachers use Ziplet to gain a deeper understanding of student comprehension and wellbeing; deliver quick exit tickets; encourage student reflection; deploy topic starters and more. Ziplet also supports schools and tertiary education institutions to gather feedback data with respect to the student experience.
