2018 was a huge year for one of DIAGRAM’s newest tools, Benetech Mathshare. Not only were we fortunate to secure funding from three additional organizations to continue the work through 2019, but the tool continued to receive positive support as we showcased the prototype to educators and students.
Version two of Mathshare, which debuted this past fall, included enhancements to the visual design, workflows to support the creation of custom problem sets, and the ability for students to save and share their work. Since the launch, we have been working on classroom pilots to collect feedback about these new features, including the usability of end-to-end workflows for educators. In the final weeks of 2018, we have also been engaging in larger-scale pilot discussions with integration partners and wrapping up dozens of in-depth student feedback sessions, including formal studies through our partners at Mad*Pow. We look forward to an exciting 2019 for Mathshare and continue to invite educators interested in piloting the new version of Mathshare in their classrooms.
