Inspired Futures AI, a Seattle-area EdTech startup, is set to partner with Pacific Northwest schools at this month’s NCCE (Northwest Council for Computer Education) conference.
The company will give away free six-month trial subscriptions of their special education classroom solution, mytaptrack.
mytaptrack, an IoT device paired with a cloud-based online platform, provides an easier way for special education teachers to track the behaviors and symptoms of special needs children.
In addition to teaching, special education teachers must monitor the behaviors and symptoms associated with a student’s special needs.
Typically, data observed throughout the school day is added to written reports that are prepared manually from memory at the end of the day. With mytaptrack, teachers will be able to send numerical data directly from the IoT device to their online platform account in the moment, right away.
A special needs child’s parents, teachers and doctors can all receive real-time notifications of the data, as well as changes in data patterns.
Inspired Futures AI founder, Nikody Keating, created mytaptrack after a miscommunication concerning his own special needs child’s symptoms, “A symptom associated with a medication my son was taking was presenting multiple times in school but my wife and I weren’t immediately aware. It gave me a greater understanding of the daily challenges special education teachers face. It’s almost as if they have to be a medical triage team instead being free to just focus on what they love to do — teach. mytaptrack’s education technology makes their lives easier.”
mytaptrack meets both FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) and HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) compliance standards to ensure the safe handling of a child’s educational and healthcare data. It integrates smoothly with a school’s IT network, and since only numerical data is communicated through the IoT button via the cloud, private information is kept truly private.
The NCCE (Northwest Council for Computer Education) conference will be held at the Washington State Convention Center on February 26 – 28, 2019.
In addition to free six-month trial subscriptions of mytaptrack (including free IoT buttons for all special education students while supplies last), the company will raffle off $100 and $200 gifts cards for free school supplies.
Keating added, “When you are able to accurately monitor and treat a special needs child’s symptoms and behaviors, you allow their exceptional abilities to shine through.”
Inspired Futures AI is a Seattle-area tech company that helps special needs children succeed using mytaptrack.
mytaptrack, a symptoms tracking IoT device and platform, counts the moments that shape special needs children, and shares data in real time with teachers, parents and doctors. mytaptrack is poised to revolutionize special education through innovation that promotes inclusion, progress and understanding.
