Inspiration

Corey Martin was a co-op student in a Grade 2/3 class earlier this year, and based on that experience, we wanted to make a tool to help maximize efficiency for teachers and motivation for students when it comes to learning skills.

What it does

LearningThrills streamlines note-taking and progress-tracking for learning skills. The intuitive spreadsheet allows teachers to record their students’ development in the midst of their busy schedules. Teachers can review student charts from previous weeks and add data to existing and new charts. LearningThrills also aims to motivate students with fun badges for their achievements.

How we built it

We built this with HTML, CSS, JavaScript on Notepad, TextEdit. We created graphics using Pixlr Photo Editor.

Challenges we ran into

We are all very new to web development languages, and this is our first hackathon. We also began late due to our schedules, so we were low on time.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

This is the first hackathon for most of the group, and overall we are proud that we managed to create a functional product.

What we learned

We learned a lot of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. We learned how to add headers, text, charts, and images in HTML. We learned how to style the pages in CSS, including how to change colours, fonts, margins, and sizes. We learned how to create buttons in JavaScript.

What's next for LearningThrills

We would like to improve the functionality of the site to allow for multiple teacher logins and for the data that users enter to be saved. We would also like to add a student site for the students to view their badges.
