"AFED" is a gaming platform for Content Producers and Educational Resource developers to utilise to help ensure their content reaches New Zealanders in classrooms and homes all across the country.
AFED's goal is to use AI to ensure lessons are evaluated to help serve up lesson modules based on the best "learning style". Examples of Learning Styles are:
Visual (spatial):You prefer using pictures, images, and spatial understanding.
Aural (auditory-musical): You prefer using sound and music.
Verbal (linguistic): You prefer using words, both in speech and writing.
Physical (kinesthetic): You prefer using your body, hands and sense of touch.
Logical (mathematical): You prefer using logic, reasoning and systems.
Social (interpersonal): You prefer to learn in groups or with other people.
Solitary (intrapersonal): You prefer to work alone and use self-study.
Not only will children want to learn more but it will also help teachers and parents by providing easy to follow lesson plans.
This resource is FREE for Schools, Teachers, Students and Parents. We endeavour to keep it FREE by the use of external funding streams.
