What were things like when you were at school? Were you ever consulted about your views? And what would you have said? Were lessons exciting or boring? Did you fully understand what was expected from you? What was the atmosphere like in class? If you think about it, feedback is always useful, yet it's still not used across the board. This might be about to change for good with the helpful new app start-up company edkimo is showcasing at CeBIT 2015 in Hannover, which should simplify pupil-teacher communications by miles.

Scientific studies have shown that learning can be improved by giving pupils the chance to submit direct feedback. Teacher Sebastian Waack, the founder of edkimo, believes students are actually the real experts when it comes to the learning process. Thus contemporary teaching methods should somehow reflect their opinions. In Germany, at least, teaching staff are legally obliged to carry out self-assessment. edkimo has just the tool to provide clear, honest and (above all) anonymous real-time pupil feedback. The app is compatible with all the main operating systems and can be used just as easily in the IT lab at school as on pupils’ smartphones.
