The future of learning - think like a human

How do we make sense of all information online? How can we support understanding of the world, and thus to make informed decisions? How can we improve thinking, like critical thinking, spatial thinking, system thinking, imagination or sustainable thinking with a blend of online and actual places?

Solution description

In order to retain most information you learned (online), we provide an extension to the existing e-learning platform Moodle which enables 'learning by teaching' on top of regular teaching methods like lectures and assignments.

Solution context

The problem is that in learning we're just scraping the surface. Research shows that only ~5% of knowledge is retained after lecturing, and complementing it with reading, audio-visual materials increases the number to just 20%. Our survey confirms that this problem also occurs in online learning.

That's why we want to reimagine the way learners learn. Up to 90% of information can be retained by practicing peer tutoring.

Solution target group

The target user group is current e-learners.

The target group to implement our solution with and for is firstly Aalto online learning center to pilot, and next expand it to all Moodle based online learning platforms.

Solution impact

The impact of the solution is that students will retain more information about what they learned.

This can be measured by additional tests over time. However, we do not want to put more tests to students. So instead, we will measure the impact by asking the students who are taught by the other students for evaluation.

Opet-Us: learn more, learn better, learn by collaborating, learn by teaching

Solution innovativeness

The solution is based on existing knowledge about how humans learn. However, this knowledge has not been implemented yet in e-learning. Nothing like this is on the market, so it is innovative and original.

Solution transferability

This solution can be integrated in all online learning platforms, but can also be applied in blended learning or class-room learning.

Solution sustainability

This solution is sustainable because it is an extension of the widely-used platform Moodle. This platform is used by many institutions, and will most likely even grow in the future. Also, further possibilities to e-learning through various platforms (smartwatches, mobile phones) can be explored.

Solution team work

We are a diverse team, and team spirit is skyrocketing high!
