Our Newest Features
Innovation is at the heart of our organization; we are continuously building features that assist educators, students and industry professionals.
The Marketplace is an integrated feature allowing challenge creators to showcase their work on a public marketplace. Content authors create learning modules as they go, while other educators can lease the modules for classroom use. This creates a community of collaboration and faciliates the integration of innovative content into the classroom. Authors receive user feedback to improve their content.
Further details on our innovative design.
Through our customized cases, the Innovatank cycle encourages purpose and improvement therefore building higher engagement in the foundational steps of Bloom’s taxonomy in remembering, understanding, applying. Students self reflect by analyzing and valuating through our 360 Feedback loop. Finally students will have the opportunite for creation in the capstone phase.
By the nature of our categorization process, we have integrated the concept of Bloom’s Taxonomy through our challenge levels.
Classroom levels target explorative challenges where students remember, understand and apply their theories.
Competition levels showcase a spectrum of challenges based on their complexity level. For example: Easy targets a single topic such as inventory control, Medium fuses multiple topics, while Hard binds together a case with multiple disciplines.
Other levels – Metaverse, Pressure Tank are other level categories with a variety of presentation medium for example: Metaverse levels are built with virtual reality in mind, Pressure tank is a series of multiple learning steps within a short time period.
The Flow State
When the challenge is too easy, we get bored. When it is too hard, we lose interest.
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi describes ‘Flow’ as a state of complete absorption in the current experiences. The Innovatank platform adjusts to each student’s interest through frequent feedback loops and allows students to browse their individual interests.
While students learn in the classroom, they can challenge themselves to explore more about a topic and participate in the open market.
Conquering Fear and Stress
When a subject matter is overwhelming, it is not pleasant and it can be discouraging. Educators can create a flexible timeline, allowing students to listen in the classroom, while being able to take things at their own pace. Take it one step at a time.
In addition, students are encouraged to participate often in writing and receive feedback from their peers via our 360 Feedback system. This brings out the best from students who may be too shy to raise their hands in class.
Organizational Knowledge Creation
Based on Ikujiro Nonaka’s Knowledge Creation Theory, there are two types of knowledge, Tacit (cannot express in sentences such as beliefs, intuition) and Explicit (can be express in written form). By encouraging continuous learning students elaborate on their tacit knowledge transforming them into explicit knowledge through the action of doing. The Innovatank process creates a spiral effect by allowing for socialization (discussion), externalization (expression), combination (learning from others) and internalization (reflection).
Imagine how stressful students can be when they only have 3 shots for success in a University class. The midterm, final and an assignment or project.
We believe that feedback is essential to improvement. Innovatank’s modular nature allows students to learn by writing (it doesn’t matter whether it is right or wrong, they just have to try!). This turns their tacit knowlege into explicit knowledge. Then, by receiving feedback, this socialization aspect allows knowledge to form and improve through reflection.
Now, imagine 3 shots and 10 practices. Students definitely feel more at ease with the subject because they tried 10 times. As for the educator, this process is fully automatic.
Our Link to Industry
Nibble is our Industry Experts Interview Hub, we discover and discuss the world’s most pressing issues with experts at the forefront of the action.
The objective of this project is to give students access to real stories and provide them the opportunity to step into the shoes of subject matter experts.
