Area: Concussive Injuries
Tech Readiness: TRL 9
Tech Brief: Our technology makes use of key research that facilitates the most rapid acquisition and retention of knowledge, including content creation, delivery and analysis of real-time learner paths toward expertise.
Value Proposition: Learning science research has identified inefficiencies with current instructional methods supported by significant proof that lecture, text, video are suboptimal methods for learners to acquire and retain declarative knowledge (the bulk of direct instructional content). Practi was developed to use research results to dramatically speed up learner knowledge acquisition and increase knowledge retention, originally in the areas of math and science, but applicable to any field of declarative (factual) knowledge: processes, procedures, safety or compliance rules, product information, equipment specifications, rescue protocol, or any information based learning scenario. The delivery of learning content occurs on Practi via a mobile application offering wide, rapid and secure distribution of learning. The innovation was originally positioned for university math and science to increase student success while giving teachers access to real time analytics of student knowledge acquisition and practice behaviour, allowing learning directors to diagnose strong/weak learners, and offer a flexible authoring tool to create a truly rapid and successful learning process. Now in commercial use, it is widely used in health related fields.
