Our Philosophy

EDDi has been built with a philosophy of always having big ambitions that solve bigger problems…

EDDi is a platform for user friendly solutions to problems faced by teachers and leaders everyday. This platform will be transformational in how digital assets are used and the value they give to a school or Multi-Academy Trust in the pursuit of continuous School Improvement.

Our mission is….

To change the process of teaching from being planned, reactive and class driven; too agile, proactive and personalised, with accurate real time information and insight on demand. 

Our core philosophy says that, technology should support every leader, teacher and student to build the most personally relevant and effective educational experience possible, without cumbersome process or difficulty.

Schools should be able to do 100 things better by 1% every month, to deliver outstanding School Improvement Plans.

We believe that every school should be seen as hundreds of individuals “stories” being written at the same time.

EDDi is designed to allow teachers to understand each of those ‘stories’ easily, so that they can identify the potential of every individual student and then guide them on their personal learning journey.

Technology can bring about fundamental improvements in education and enable progress for all students’ irrespective of age, gender or economic circumstances.

EDDi has also been designed and built in partnership with educators and school leaders to support:

  • Progressive changes that are being made in pedagogy,
  • Teachers and the learning organisation becoming more agile and proactive to the need of the individual student
  • Supporting schools in the creation of more autonomous, school-led systems, with school self-evaluation at the centre of it.

Over the next five years, “agile schools and teaching” will develop as a philosophy, with assessment at the core of how a school operates.

We will see teachers allocate more time and resources to smaller closely aligned groups of students within a class and guide these groups in a direction that matches with their common interests, goals and levels of understanding. EDDi also gives every teacher the ability to identify and stretch talented students at an early stage through formative assessment.

“Agile” teaching uses real time feedback and a holistic data view. Teachers have a deeper knowledge of individual students and identify the correct interventions at an earlier stage, in real time and with an ability to access data on their own terms.

Schools will become smart and develop data “intelligence” over time.

As EDDi is populated with more data, it will be able to identify opportunities to engage and motivate students with personalised learning journeys that both challenge and support that individual student.

Built over a two-year period in consultation with education leaders, teachers, students and Microsoft Education, EDDi will become the “data brain” of a school or MAT.

No longer will it be one class with one lesson plan, but lessons will instead be planned around student needs with dynamic sets and increased levels of understanding. This will ensure that no one is “left behind” or is failed by the system.

EDDi has been built to assist school leaders and teachers in their pursuit of continuous development to support delivery of a School Improvement Plans (SIP).

EDDi is the platform that allows every school to deliver the “Marginal gains” theory, that is adopted by elite teams across sport and business. In education it would see school leaders break down every aspect of managing a school, an individual student experience and then seek ways to consistently improve various aspects by 1% every month. When a school aggregates all of the “marginal gains” being made by each student, the result is transformational in outcomes and life opportunities for students.

We understand the demands of modern education and will always see it as our role to support teachers and students in everything you do.
