"Kinteract is child-led and provides a window into children’s interests and developmental needs.
By recording special learning moments using Kinteract, we are able to understand more about the student, plan for next steps in a personalised way, share learning amongst the team of educators and involve families in their child’s learning journey.
Alongside the observation feed, the assessment function ensures we are able to keep a detailed record of where a child is at developmentally, at any given moment in time."
"The Kinteract app allows our Nursery and Primary school staff to immediately record observations of individual pupils and classes across all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile, National Curriculum and Catholic Education Services Age Related Standards in Religious Education.
Parents are able to respond to these observations, giving them a greater link to their child’s education. Recorded observations support staff when making summative assessments – and the reporting system allows Senior Management to monitor attainment and progress from Nursery to Year 6, by year group or groups of pupils – identifying positive results and any areas that require improvement."
"I think your personalised approach to support and empathise with our families and their children's needs separates Kinteract from other providers. The service has been quick and insightful; the collaborative approach means the product fits our school rather than us having to fit around the product.
When Kinteract first contacted me, I initially thought that I was ok - had some tools in place, and didn’t need to implement something else within the school, especially with the pressures on teachers due to Covid-19. However, I stopped myself and thought to not just concentrate on everything surrounding Covid-19, but realised this could actually be a missed opportunity if I don’t go for it and I’m so glad we did as it is helping us now and in the long term."
"Kinteract is the epitome of transformational, high-impact learning technology and I believe it is the most exciting edtech product on the market today.
Combining a secure social media experience with AI, real time portfolio building, active parent engagement, data analytics and truly personalised learning in the hands of students, Kinteract is a rare game changer in the field."
"Kinteract has proved to be really useful for us, in terms of two-way communication - giving players feedback, both via text, in report-form or through voice messages and video chats. The feedback process is really simple within the app.
The platform is especially useful for referencing and sharing YouTube clips and exercise links, embedding those into posts or messages that we send send to players, that works really well. The platform itself is user-friendly, we've set up groups and it’s probably the easiest way to share information with everyone - compared to other traditional ways, email or WhatsApp, etc, so Kinteract works really well for that.
From the players’ perspective, once they got familiar with the platform and understood how to respond to the coaches ‘next steps’ or sent us questions, shared the completed exercises that they’ve been doing, etc, they have found it one really beneficial and have shared positive feedback with us."
"We like how the implementation and use of the product is at our pace, so staff and students get familiar with the software gradually.
The communication with Kinteract has been brilliant; we have a single point of contact with the customer success manager who has made the implementation, training, and ongoing support seamless and efficient.
Kinteract makes teaching easier. As a trust covering 17 schools Kinteract allows all schools to collaborate in one system accessing learning resources and this has really benefited us by bringing us together in one learning environment.
Overall, I would give Kinteract a 10/10 for providing us with an easy-to-use product with everything in one place, removing the need for multiple platforms and for their flexibility in being able to meet our needs in a product as a collaborative music specialist trust."
