November 28, 2012

From myfoxwausau.com: “NTC introduces new iPad app for area students” — A new iPad app is helping teachers see how their students are learning.

The WI-Skills app was introduced by North Central Technical College and is currently being used at four local high schools to monitor students’ apptitude in manufacturing courses.

NTC officials said the goal is to help educators map the progress of students throughout their coursework.

It will also allow them to see how they are grasping the material.

“It’s going to give them real time access to the student progress. They are going to be able to see how the student is doing and have video and picture documentation of the student performance,” Wausau West Instructor Theran Peterson said of the new app.

Teachers said the app is in the early stages. It was created thanks to a grant from the Department of Education.
