K-12 Education is big business. And one that is providing us ghostwriters and speechwriters many well-paying assignments. Those range from persuading stakeholders about online education to creating background material for Second Language teaching. Now, with startup Panorama Education, those assignments could become a whole lot more interesting. That's because Panorama Education is bringing the tools of BigData to K-12 educators.
Just as in investing, medical research, and politics, BigData in primary and secondary education could unmask game-changing correlations. BigData is about those relationships, not digging for causes. For example, as applied to education, BigData could reveal the correlation between walking versus riding a bus to school and student perception of being bullied. Not on the table would be investigating the supposed causes of bullying per se.
Startup Panorama Education provides to schools for a fee an analogue of SurveyMonkey, reports Darrell Etherington in TECH CRUNCH. Unlike SurveyMonkey, which is free, Panorama Education goes beyond mere collection of data. It guides those needing data on what questions to pose to students and how to interpret that data.
We ghostwriters and Speechwriters can tell the story of how K-12 education in general and how individual districts have entered the era of BigData, what are the current payoffs, and what could be down the road. BigData could be the tool of reform throughout the world.
