REAP OCAL Tech Sub (NEW)
Computer Assisted Learning
How it works:
O-CAL enables students to learn at their own pace.
The game-based learning platform encompasses exercises submitted by thousands of teachers. O-CAL also has an adaptive learning component – the difficulty level of the exercises automatically adjusts to match each individual student's learning progress.
O-CAL improves student academic performance.
REAP field experiments show that when students use O-CAL for at least 30 minutes once per week for a semester, their grades significantly improve.
Increasing access by making O-CAL mobile.
Students and teachers can easily access our free game-based learning software at home or on the go via phone application.
A Flagship Collaboration with Dell, Inc.
We are working with Dell as part of a multi-year plan in leveraging technology to bridge rural-urban education outcomes. We will:
- Reach hundreds of thousands of rural students through our local government and NGO partnerships;
- Use Dell technology to enhance user experience;
- Continually refine and augment our O-CAL software.
The newest version of the software will incorporate innovative ways to track and display student progress to help inform teachers about how to tailor their instruction.
Taoli Online: Our O-CAL Social Enterprise
We are partnering with non-profits and corporations across China to increase access to our software and reach the children who need it the most. We established a social enterprise called Taoli Online in an effort to scale up and reach hundreds of thousands of children across China.
