Socrates overview

What is Socrates ?

Socrates Learning Platform is a teaching assistant and learning platform which helps schools guide their students through thousands of educational topics, including core English, Math, and Science, by combining individualized learning with gamification. Socrates creates individualized learning paths that adjust based on student answers, helping them focus on where they are struggling and encouraging them to excel in the areas in which they are doing well. Socrates starts each child on their grade level, but adjusts backwards or forwards across grades based on their individual capabilities.

Socrates is designed to create a one-on-one learning experience for students. The platform updates the learning path in real-time, adjusting immediately to student behavior, or answers, and identifying any learning gaps where the student needs help. Socrates also adapts to different teaching styles, and supports integrated learning and gamification. Play-and-learn games are available across all grades and subjects, including Math, English, Language Arts, and Science. Automatic alerts ensure teachers know exactly where students need help. Socrates provides multilingual and cross-cultural support.

Great Teaching Tool

Used occasionally for less than 6 months

Overall I think it’s a great tool and can really enhance teaching!

Pros
I liked Socrates because it’s easy to use and you can send out a quiz in real time to students. It’s all electronic so no paper waste.

Cons
One thing is it can give some anxiety as you go through the questions together causing some students to rush.

Kids Love It!

My overall experience has been good. I feel that it has been a good review program in math and language arts for the kids. I love that I can monitor their progress and reassign skills that they need to work on.

Pros
What I like most about this software is that the kids love going on it. The kids are learning math and language arts but then get rewarded with games, cards, etc. It is a win, win situation.

Cons
There isn't much that I didn't like about the software. It does seem like they play games a lot, but it can be controlled, so it's not much of a problem.

Overall, Socrates is a great progressive platform to support students' learning.

Pros
This program provides individualized support to students, while also encouraging them along the way! This program progressively identifies where a student IS and supports them to reaching where they need to be - while also incorporating their interests!

Cons
At times, the games on Socrates feel interesting to students, which is GREAT; online teaching, however, is just challenging. Ensuring that the students are accurately progressing and completing units at times can be a challenge!

Socrates has been easy to use and our personal service has been great!

Pros
High interest level for my students. They love the games. All students are able to use it independently.

Cons
The students can earn the rewards too easily and need more of a challenge before being rewarded and being able to play games.

Great for Students

I love it. The individualized learning paths for students creates an opportunity for students to learn st their own pace while obtaining the information they need.

Pros
This is a great interactive platform for supplemental education for students. The platform looks like a video game platform which is very attractive to students. Provides individualized learning paths for students. Similar to a BARBRI or Themis test prep where it adjusts based on the students understanding.

Cons
Individualized plans may cause students to fall into a comparison strategy, however this really has nothing to do with the software itself. It's just a collateral effect. Adults/ teachers/ Parents utilizing the software for multiple children should know how to address this with multiple students.
