CrossbBraining Is Transforming Education, Here’s How.
Crossbraining is a new kind of curriculum that’s sweeping part of the nation by storm. It blends real hands on video and media creation with the ability to capture, share and learn, all by way of student created content via GoPro cameras.
Crossbraining provides the templates and curriculum to turn project based learning, into a fully immersive experience, where students capture their learning experience from start to finish. Then, they take the video footage they’ve created with Go-Pro and turn it into a narrated one minute video demonstrating their content mastery.
Go-Pro camera’s are small, 4K digital video cameras that are durable, rugged and fit just about anywhere. That means no matter what the task at hand, it can be captured up close and personal. With Crossbraining and Go-Pro technology, students have captured rocketry, robotics, and even a day in the life of a dog.
Students can dive even deeper into the lesson and skills and then create narrated videos of their learning process using the key terms from the skills and standards they learn in class. The videos can then be shared with other students, teachers, classes, parents, friends and more, creating a valuable tool for the school itself.
Crossbraining brings a new level of collaboration to the classroom with students helping one another with both the lesson and the filming itself. It also helps them develop real world skills that they’ll need in today’s digital first environment.
It’s not just the latest technology or the coolest new way of teaching. Crossbraining is actually improving student outcomes. Nichols saw a 40% increase in the passing rate on the State of Michigan standardized test scores. They saw math, science, reading and writing scores improve across the board.
There are some clear benefits to using Crossbraining in the classroom:
- Increased engagement
- Hands on learning
- Capture learning
- Increased participation from parents and families
- Exposure to new and exciting topics and content
- More outdoor activities
The patent pending CrossBraining maker education management app is fundamental in delivering deep understandings and success skills: creativity, communication, collaboration and critical thinking. As teachers assign new CrossBraining projects to their teams of students they can upload any lesson or project into the app and monitor classroom progress as the app guides students through each learning phase.
