As we move away from crisis management of COVID-19 and toward the coming school year – new challenges are emerging. Most obviously, the need to redefine the learning environment and unexpected budget challenges.
Hoonuit is an adaptable partner with an extensible solution that can meet your specific needs. Here we outline four ways we can support you as you face these challenges:
1. Understand the impact of digital learning.
As digital learning becomes more prevalent, Hoonuit is providing rich digital learning analytics that provides educators with actionable insights about its impact on student success. Our out-of-the-box dashboards can help you answer critical questions like:
- Are students and teachers accessing the system(s)?
- Are students and teachers engaging on the platform(s)?
- What are the correlations between access/ engagement and student performance?
2. Gain holistic insight into students.
Hoonuit has the most robust data model in education which enables our solution to ingest all the relevant data points educators need to understand the ‘whole child’ in an easy-to-use platform. Read our Whole Child White Paper to learn more.
Additionally, given that schools have been out since March, it is likely that existing learning gaps have widened and new ones have been created. A holistic view of student data points (beyond assessment scores) gives a clear view to address inequities.
3. Engage your community around the critical services you provide (meals, devices, WiFi, etc.).
One of the first things we heard as the COVID-19 crisis arose was the need for a school meal finder. Within 24 hours of hearing this from our partner Louisiana DOE, we created SchoolMealFinder.com (a free site for all education agencies).
Hoonuit’s Community Engagement solution can be utilized to help engage your community around any services you may be providing – including programs, devices, WiFi, and more. Additionally, as you are planning what services to provide and where, our Location Analytics solution can help you identify geographically where these needs exist in your community. This includes the ability to help you tackle more complex issues such as boundary changes and transportation.
4. Evaluate program cost in comparison to performance.
Evaluating the cost-effectiveness of programs is more important than ever before. Our solution enables you to compare financial data and student performance data. Typically two or more separate systems are needed. However, our solution can give you a complete view into – and the correlation between – the number of students supported by a program, the impact of the program on student outcomes, and the spend associated with it.
