Individual Learning Maps
for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
An adaptive learning prototype to help individuals understand what they know and what they need to learn in order to master a subject.
Maps as motivation
Can a learning map do more than just show a student her journey through course content? Can it become a tool for inspiring progress?
We spent months with students and experts iterating on approaches and designs to circle in on a seemingly simple idea – that showing kids their progress could lead to faster learning.
A more engaging learning environment
We crafted an early prototype of a tool that diagnoses student needs, introduces learning content and helps students track their learning progress. We also built in a system of choices and rewards that had students begging for more.
