- Overview

LaunchPad Insights Seminars are designed to raise the thinking of the entire EdTech ecosystem through shared learning. Our speaker, Dr Michael Cejnar will share his experiences and journey of founding edQuire, a real-time school learning analytics system that provides teachers with insights into students ICT competencies.

Michael Cejnar is a cardiologist, electrophysiologist, self taught engineer and EdTech entrepreneur. He developed computerised cardiac stimulators for his own cardiac practice and quickly realised there was a market selling them locally and globally. He founded edQuire after becoming a father and realising the importance of engaged on-task computer behaviours in students. The goal of edQuire is to make computers count in education; they should instruct and not distract.

EdQuire uses learning analytics of laptop use in classrooms to provide teachers with real-time indication of context-based on-taskness, iCT skills and diagnostics of learning processes. Analysis of this data has enabled an understanding of usage patterns of classroom ICT and student’s skill sets, necessary for effective and efficient use of ICT in K-12.
