Powered by Snapplify, Teacha! Inspire presents new course: Unlocking Understanding

Every teacher is a language teacher.

Reading comprehension forms the foundation of learning. However, according to the Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS) 2016, which assessed the reading comprehension skills of fourth-grade students in South Africa, approximately 78% of South African Grade 4 learners cannot read for understanding. This is something that needs to be addressed in all subjects and not just left to those who teach Home Language. Since the success of all other subjects relies on a learner’s ability to read and process information, a lack of ‘reading to understand’ directly impacts the entire learning ecosystem.

So what can we do about it?

We need to position ourselves as educators who drive comprehension beyond the nitty-gritty of the language classroom. Teacha! Inspire’s new course, Unlocking Understanding, provides you with research-based, practical strategies and techniques that you can use to enhance your learners’ reading comprehension abilities in all subjects. The course equips you with easy-to-use tools to unlock your learner’s potential. Best of all, you can start them in any classroom from tomorrow. There is no need for a major classroom practice overhaul!

New AI technology supports teachers – Creating exams will never be the same with Dugga’s new innovation

Dugga Assessment, a leading platform for online assessment solutions, is proud to announce the launch of its AI-powered question generator tool: AI Exam Engine. This cutting-edge technology will enable teachers to generate high-quality, diverse and engaging questions in one click, and save time compared to when done manually. The use of artificial intelligence (AI) in education is becoming increasingly popular and Dugga Assessment is leading the way in implementing the latest technologies to improve student learning outcomes.

This new feature within the Dugga platform helps teachers to minimize the time to create exams, tests and quizzes. The new solution is developed in collaboration with Microsoft’s Azure Cloud team.

“It is amazing to see how powerful the Dugga AI Exam Engine can be in the hands of a teacher. A teacher can, in less than a minute, generate a high-quality exam which is ready to be used in the classroom or exam hall. We actually change nothing in the way teachers work, but we use AI to reduce teachers’ workload and stress. This will also be very useful for students when they want to practice on their own.” states Patrik Nilsson, CIO of Dugga Assessment.

Dugga Assessment’s newly released AI product is part of the company’s ongoing efforts to provide innovative, high-quality assessment solutions to educators and learners.
