The Department of Education in the Australian state of New South Wales is implementing the Additio academic management and communication platform in more than 400 schools.
The project is already underway and is being successfully implemented with the objective of improving the development of skills in students, evaluating them in a formative way by putting the students themselves at the centre of the learning process, and promoting communication of the students’ progress to their families.
After an exhaustive analysis of national and international systems, Additio was chosen as the winning platform with the best rating. Teachers have improved their productivity and the way they manage their classes, whether this be in person, online or a hybrid of the two. Instead of simply awarding grades, they have now moved to formative evaluation through the use of rubrics, collaborative and self-assessment tools, quizzes and an environment perfectly integrated with the primary LMS ecosystems, such as Google Classroom, Microsoft Teams and Moodle.
The Minister for Education in the region, Victor Dominello, presented the project to educational leaders by explaining what an important step it would be for digital transformation and the development of skills in students.
