the teach tour uncovering how & why we've failed to educate children worldwide@theteachtour

Class 200

Each colored line represents one student in Class 200. Scrolling over the lines details the specific engagement levels of each student. When the line is broken or does not contain a dot on any given day, either the student did not respond with their engagement level for that day or there was no class on that day. (No classes on weekends).

The spikes are most fascinating to watch, where a student went from being very unengaged to a day of high engagement, and likewise the reverse, where a student went from being very engaged to a day of low engagement. What happened there, why, and how can we replicate or eliminate these types of days from the student’s schooling?

Students’ voices behind the data

Dark Blue: “I realized I wasn’t very engaged one day so I put more effort in being more engaged in class.”

The overall low day: Thursday Apr 21: “Our regular teacher was not there, it was very lecture based.”  ”All we did was listen.” “I was really tired and bored.”

Overall high day: Wednesday, Apr 27: “We were doing a class project, and had to be totally engaged.” “We got to be more active in our learning.”
