The first pedagogical platform for schools and colleges that lets you customize education is called Blinklearning. It supports all the publishers, accessible through any Internet connection support, and allows teachers to complement and create interactive content, adjusting to the needs and learning pace of each student group.

Blinklearning es la primera plataforma pedagógica para colegios e institutos compatible con todas las editoriales y accesible a través de cualquier soporte con conexión a Internet, que permite personalizar la educación. Esta solución e-tutoring permite a los docentes complementar y crear contenido interactivo ajustado a las necesidades y ritmos de aprendizaje de cada grupo de estudiantes, así como diagnosticar sus áreas de mejora.

Adaptar el aprendizaje de los alumnos a las nuevas tecnologías es básico pues, según el Ministerio de Educación, la penetración de Internet en las aulas ha pasado de un 25 al 68 por ciento. Actualmente, los alumnos que hacen sus deberes utilizando Internet, una actividad que se ha duplicado en tan sólo cinco años. Por eso, el objetivo de los creadores de Blinklearning es hacer la vida más fácil al profesor a través de la tecnología con una herramienta fácil e intuitiva.

Publishers resources are digitized and stored, and each teacher can classify and give the necessary use according to subject, both texts as exercises, and students could save many times those big backpacks of books.

But besides the editorial content, the teacher can create their own educational content through templates (over 50,000 activities) that may pose a problem from a concept to explain. You can also supplement it with a large bank of images, video and sound, and even you can work with any website as if it were a whiteboard. Thus for example, for an exercise music you could put the image of the score, the audio of it and a series of exercises that can be self-graded or free response.

Correcting avoid spending money
El tema de la autocorrección es muy beneficioso para el profesor, como dice Gonzalo Baranda, uno de sus creadores: “Los profesores pasan entre un 15 y un 20 por ciento de su tiempo corrigiendo, por lo que pierden mucho tiempo”. Además afirma que al recibir una nota, los niños se “pican” entre ellos para ver a quien le sale mejor, como si de un videojuego se tratase.

Una vez se obtienen los resultados, el profesor puede analizar la evolución de sus alumnos, e identificar a aquellos que necesitan atención especial o aquellos que requieren de un estímulo adicional en una materia o un parte de ella, pudiendo mandarles material extra. Esto se debe en parte gracias a que los ejercicios se clasifican, y cuando el profesor observa el perfil del alumno puede ver en qué debe mejorar. Por ejemplo en el caso de lenguaje, puede tener buena nota en ortografía y literatura, pero un nivel deficiente de sintaxis.

With all this the teacher can go to manage the composition of the class, communicate with students, and even parents and guardians. That's how the creators of this tool achieve their goal: to facilitate the use of technology among teachers. Blinklearning they say is "a simple and intuitive tool for the average teacher does not need to be an expert in technology."

Benefits not only for teachers
The beneficiaries of these tools are not just teachers. Students have greater motivation to do their homework via the Internet. The material can be tailored to each students with varying degrees of difficulty, and that creates greater competitiveness.

Parents who know minimally use technology will be more involved than ever because they can follow the progress of their children and detect potential problems early.

Finally colleges, may give their true use of whiteboards, which the creators were totally underused Blinklearning. And so they may have some adapted to the times infrastructures as schools seemed impervious to technological developments. In addition, adaptation and implementation costs are reduced when an application cloud.

A tool with results
After a testing time, the tool has been implemented at the beginning of this year in September, a total of 140 schools throughout Spain, and expect this number to increase for the next year.

These schools have to pay a fee of between 10 and 20 euros per pupil per year. That's why many of them have so far been launched in classrooms whiteboards, to see if the tool is worth.

The implementation has been in all kinds of schools, but they recognize that "this love private". "Before he sought to excel in bilingualism and now the technology is becoming important." In this regard, the website is available in English, Catalan and Galician.

As 5,000 students who are using this new tool seem more motivated, but has not yet been measured if their results have improved. And next year adaptation also for bachelor students will be made.

Teachers are grateful, and find it useful even those who seemed most reluctant to technology. Although Joao Marques-Cana, the second of its creators, admits that "there is a percentage of teachers who will never use digital content."

The next goal is to expand the number of platforms from which you can access, and is currently being investigated installation on tablets.
