ManezCo is developing an online educational platform, Valearnis, for high school students. Our educational ecosystem is designed with 'student-centric learning' at its core, engaging with our students is essential for a successful learning environment.
Valearnis provides learning content for students in bite-sized, iterative quizzes, allowing them to absorb knowledge in a meaningful and tangible way. The content we use to educate is fully curriculum relevant, following the Australian National Curriculum, we cater for all four subjects - Maths, Science, HASS, and English. Combining new-age educational concepts such as ubiquitous learning, active knowledge-making, personalised learning, multi-modal meaning, iterative feedback, and metacognition allows us to deliver highly effective, engaging, and meaningful education to students around the world, regardless of their circumstances or socioeconomic status.
The main problems we are solving are student disengagement, high teacher workloads, resource disparity, differentiated learning needs, and curriculum irrelevancy. The features we are tailoring together in our web-application include:
