We here at Edji are passionate about connecting people through reading.
Edji was built to empower teachers, in their journey to cultivate the minds of their students. At its core, Edji is a simple reading tool that lets anybody easily distribute readings and track their reader’s progress through the reading. Readers can read individually, using both Emoji and Text Commenting to annotate and connect to their assignment. As they are reading, a teacher can follow their progress, seeing their highlights and comments as they make them. When two readers comment on the same section of the text, the highlight seen by the teacher gains ‘heat.’ When many students make a comment on the same section, the teacher will see a ‘hot spot’ of bright red highlight to let them know what their readers find interesting. With a click of a button, the teacher can give readers ‘Heat Vision’ and let them see the collective highlighting and comments of their peers, letting them see what others thought was important enough to comment on, what they were saying about it.
Edji can be used in almost every subject, from creative writings in English class to articles and readings in Science and History. The Edji team has been working closely with teachers to develop strategies to successfully use Edji in classrooms anywhere from 3rd to 12th grade. If you have any questions about how you can implement Edji in your class, please reach out to us and let us know! We would love to work with you to make your experience with Edji successful.
