Knowledge aims to accelerate recent improvements in math attainment levels, across all age groups, in Australia. The Learner First to distribute Knowledgehook technology across Australia.

 

CANBERRA, AUSTRALIA – News Direct – 16
February 2021 – Knowledgehook, the
world’s most comprehensive mathematics learning platform, has launched in
Australia as the nation’s teachers turn a corner in addressing low maths
attainment levels for young people. It is now available to schools across the
country for children in Year 3 to Year 10 classes, through The Learner First, a
consultancy working with schools across Australia.

 

The latest TIMSS (Trends in
International Mathematics and Science Study) found that Australia’s achievement
in mathematics has improved since 2015. However, Year 4 mathematics achievement
has not changed since 2007. One of the biggest challenges facing educators is
to find better ways to meet the learning needs of the many students who fall
behind in schools, failing to meet year-level expectations (often year after
year) and, as a consequence, become increasingly disengaged.

Knowledgehook’s proprietary technology
harnesses the power of data to track where students are on their math journey.
Their programmes connect a child’s at-home learning with in-school education,
providing real-time insights to teachers on learning gaps. This empowers
teachers to develop an understanding of the maths concepts related to their
students’ challenges, enabling them to adjust instruction and monitor student
progress.

Knowledgehook: The Instructional Guidance System for
teachers

 

As Knowledgehook launches across
Australia, former Australian Mathematics
Curriculum leader, Margaret Bigelow
, commented: ” Australia’s results
in international testing are improving. The impact of a national approach to
teaching and learning Mathematics has impacted on this improved outcome.
Teachers need to be supported to maintain this trajectory of improvement by
having the ideas and tools to enhance the engagement of their students to
develop critical and creative thinking and further mathematical skills. This will
enable students to adjust to the ever-changing demands and challenges of life
in the future.”

“Knowledgehook was inspired by my own
struggle with maths as a child,” explained CoFounder and CEO of Knowledgehook, Travis Ratnam. “Having the
right, personalised guidance makes all the difference and every student
deserves to have a teacher who has access to the best pedagogical tools, and
parents who have insights into their learning. Our platform is not a game, it
pulls together a 360 view on a child’s learning journey enabling people around
them to improve the child’s math experience and outcomes.

In launching Knowledgehook across
Australia, Joanne McEachen, Founder and
CEO of The Learner First
commented: “I love the fact maths support is
available 24/7 so when a learner struggles with a math’s concept, the teacher
can access professional learning and development to help support both the
learner and the teacher on the spot. Moreover, it helps teachers retrace their
approach and identifies what may have been missed allowing them to recover and
embed essential skills and concepts. Quite simply, it is what we have been
missing for years and it will certainly complement the current trajectory of
further improving math’s performance and disposition in Australian students.”

 

Knowledgehook’s AI-enabled platform has
grown to support schools across the US, Mexico, and the UK. It is designed to
scale across multiple countries and languages developing teacher capacity while

interest for our technology and expertise to be applied to other subjects and
we look forward to expanding our solution to empower more educators and support
the learning of students to become the problem-solvers of tomorrow,” Qamar Qureshi, President and Chief Business
Officer
added.
