Nexed Steps

Sheridan College students aboard the Nexed covered wagon

Standard

As promised, we want to keep you up to date not only with the latest and greatest in juicy edtech tidbits for 21st century educators and parents, but also on the progress of Answerables, as it emerges from its embryonic state.

Many of you may have noticed the Sheridan College logo at bottom of the Sneak Peek page about Answerables at nexed.com. We have been working closely with an awesome group of post-graduate students since September. This project was initially funded by FedDev and has focused mainly on the creation of the first integrated gaming ‘Zone.’

We’ve met so many talented folks at Sheridan and they’ve jumped fully on to the Nexed covered wagon lighting out for territories unknown. A big shout-out and high-five to these fine people: Patrick McKenna (project lead), Will Barry, Jeston Silveira, Harsha Chandriani, Selm Pitcher, Young kyu Han, Huy Tran, and Varian Singh.

A week ago, we had a major ‘meeting of the minds’ bringing in both our data base architect and ‘dashboard’ guru for a marathon brainstorming session about connecting all the pieces of this puzzle together to prepare for beta launch in January.

Terrific ideas were brought to the table, things began to pivot, and before we knew it, not only had a couple major changes for the better been suggested, but there was also talk of Answerables going MOBILE. Exciting times indeed!

Stay tuned—MUCH more on this to come!!

Kickin’ it New-School: Answerables

Standard

T.S. Eliot wrote “The end is where we start from.” And it’s with thoughts of new beginnings and endings of long journeys that we welcome you to Nexed.

Created by two fathers, educators and lifelong square pegs wiggling around in round holes, who saw such a great need for an evolution in how we are currently using educational technology, that we decided to light out for a new frontier, leaving behind the comforts of web 2.0, in search for something more for OUR and YOUR children.

What we began to discover along the way is something that as educators we have known all along, but that perhaps we could do well to remind ourselves. (more…)
