The portal is constantly being further developed and supplemented with features that are intended to optimize the learning process. Furthermore, the goal is to evaluate learning data regarding when, how and with which method questions and help are asked in order to individualize learning.
Learning by helping
This learning pyramid states that one is most likely to learn most effectively by explaining. Our goal is to provide a digital platform for anyone (of any age) to explain math topics to others.
Learning through understanding
As a “golden rule”, helpers should not simply solve given tasks in a recipe-like manner and send them to the learner, but rather start an active process of understanding: e.g. by first asking if the learner already has approaches or by sending some initial help (e.g. a tip or a basic tutorial). Because no specific content is given, it can be determined in the long run who will be most effective with which medium and when.
What qualifies a helper/who becomes a helper?
Today, technology makes it possible to measure data in all areas. This offers unprecedented opportunities in education to give people helper accreditation regardless of age, background or point certifications. In addition to reachsupportnetwork.eu own tutors, everyone gets the opportunity to help others and will receive feedback directly from the learner through assessment processes. Accordingly, anyone who has already helped others can see how successfully (in the long run, also specifically in which topic) they were helped.
