Cambridge University Press (CUP) has introduced two new age digital solutions – Cambridge HOTmaths, a comprehensive blended mathematics learning system and Communication 360°, an innovative Listening and Speaking Skills Development solution, powered by technology.
Cambridge HOTmaths, a global learning solution for mathematics offers cutting-edge technology and best practices to support mathematics teaching and learning. Cambridge HOTmaths brings a paradigm shift, where print material supports digital and has distinct advantages for both – classroom and home usage – and is aimed at encouraging independent learning.
Communication 360° immerses the learners into a real-world environment wherein they are allowed to interact within relevant contexts, encouraged to make connections and build confidence to communicate effectively.
Speaking at the launch, Ratnesh Kumar Jha, Managing Director, CUP, South Asia, said, “We are driven by our goal to create products that ignite curiosity and love for learning and teaching. These products are developed keeping in mind the pedagogy designed in context of the real world. With such learner-centric solutions, we aim to unlock the potential of the new age learner and make them future ready.”
Mark O’Neil, Executive Director, CUP, Australia and CEO of HOTmaths Pty Ltd, said, “HOTmaths is enabling pathways for children with different abilities to achieve successful outcomes. Cambridge HOTmaths India has a mission to make learning mathematics more engaging and interactive. The response garnered globally has been overwhelming and we are certain that schools will achieve better results and lesser impediments in the classrooms, in India as well.”
Cambridge HOTmaths, at school, enables teachers to chart student progress with integrated diagnostic tests and other assessment activities. It caters to all ability levels, from beginners to advanced, and offers creative teaching ideas for integrating Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in the classroom. At home, it improves performance by reinforcing the topics learnt at school.
Similarly, Communication 360° consists of School and Home use components. The product makes use of visual, auditory and kinaesthetic learning strategies. It promotes confidence building via multiple guided as well as self-paced practice opportunities. The programme comes with a progress tracker, to track the performance and graphically depict the position vis-à-vis other learners. Pre, mid and post scored Assessments and Analytics are in place for all stakeholders – students, teachers, administrators and parents.
