Learning Ledger unifies learning stories across disconnected data silos

Learning Data is in plentiful supply in K-12 schools. When you know that most schools have over 20 sources of teaching and learning data, you can understand how these data silos fragment and mask important teaching and learning stories.
Learning Ledger builds a unified whole-of-student view across all available data to surface the teaching and learning stories that K-12 leaders and teachers want to read.

literatu makes learning data work for educators

 

When data met Sally her world changed for the better.

A true story.

Multiple sources of evidence combine into ‘now’ learning stories

Ledger brings all key data sources together.

Schools want to bring the data they have  into a single view. It makes good sense to unify data and makes better sense when all leaders and teachers can access and interact with it.

Schools create volumes of data in school management, cloud and learning systems every day. Across multiple online systems and manual interactions, learning and pastoral data multiplies at an exponential yet disconnected rate.

Rarely is this data unified and made visible to the leaders and teachers who need to see it the most.Ledger fixes this.

Instant inquiry and analysis for any class or student, or data source or idea or hunch…

Ledger gives teachers and leaders instant visibility into any class or student learning profile.  

Using Ledger, teachers see their students across all learning and pastoral activities, for all classes and subjects. With access into the full learning ledger of each student, teachers can quickly see patterns, make decisions and follow their hunches. Leaders can look across all data sources, across all years for all students and teachers.

  • Have there been any issues in other classes?
  • Is the student engaged in other subjects?
  • How is the student going overall?

These are important factors to know about each student.

Set up alerts and inquiries that matter to you

As soon as learning entries are posted in Learning Ledger, leaders, teachers and students all have immdeiate access.

Ledger’s wizard based rule and alert builder allows teachers and leaders to configure the Ledger engine to look for scenarios, follow hunches and tailor the way they want to see data in their context. This is the really cool capability of Ledger. It engages everyone with their context.

There is no training needed to use Ledger Alerts, you simply click your way through the available data sources and features. All choices offered are the only ones you can make!

Break the “it’s too hard and too expensive” paradigm

Ledger disrupts the time and cost demands of BI projects and constraints of ‘homegrown’ data initiatives. Our mission is to eliminate the time and cost constraints of data management and consolidation to give teachers instant information and insights into data. We happily work with IT and all other systems with a fully open and transparent API data interchange capability.

Ledger breaks the traditional ‘too hard’ and ‘too expensive’ paradigm that wraps around data analysis and access to data. Whilst it’s true that the value to teaching and learning increases with more access to more complete and expansive learning data, it is also true that to date, the cost of consolidation of data sources increases at the same rate. Cost is a factor of time, effort, training and investment in continual tweaks and adjustments in bespoke BI solutions.

Ledger puts AI to work for you, drawing inferences and patterns from the data to show “What we noticed”. You don’t have to go looking in charts to follow your hunch.

Literatu is a “circuit breaker” for Seymour in the ongoing learning analytics journey.
