Tokyo, Japan (PRWEB) May 11, 2016
MetaMoJi, a leading global provider of business productivity and industry efficiency applications, today reported on an adaptation of its popular MetaMoJi ClassRoom app for tablet-based adult language training. Krista Purc, founder of the Anglais sur Demande language school in Quebec City, Canada announced that she has adopted MetaMoJi ClassRoom for use in all of her classes.
Her flourishing business provides training in English fluency for French-speaking professionals engaged in trade and commerce across North America and around the world. Krista’s high-tech learning tools include mobile smart phones, digital tablets that integrate with room projectors and interactive white boards. The ability to monitor students' work in real-time, provide one to one and group support and create and distribute documents straight from the app saves hours of effort for each lesson.
Said Krista: “I was very careful about my selection process. I diligently checked out the competition including some very advanced educational softwares used here in Canada at some of the best universities. I found the set-up and use of those competing, expensive systems to be complicated for the teacher and even more so for the time-strapped post-university professionals I typically include in my classes.”
Adds Krista: “What I value most about MetaMoJi ClassRoom is its deliberate simplicity. Perhaps it reflects the Japanese design spirit, but I found it much easier, more elegant and intuitive to create documents with MetaMoJi, then immediately share the docs, mostly in .pdf format, and view them on line with all of the students, either in a classroom setting or one-to-one remotely. We can all make marks on the working lesson materials in real time and the changes can be instantaneously seen by all as we make them – no matter where in the world or in the city they actually are.”
Krista also values MetaMoJi ClassRoom’s organizational capabilities: “I love the way I can organize all of my individual lesson sheets, duplicate them at will, then move sheets from one class to the next. For a teacher, categorizing the elements of our instructional and student materials is the key to reducing many hours of work spent with other, less capable systems. A binder is not convenient for many of the adult students in my classes, but they have everything of theirs already stored and organized in the MetaMoJi Cloud that backs up ClassRoom.”
Krista’s customers today tend to be mid-career Canadian professionals or entrepreneurial business owners – mostly native French language speakers who have advanced in their jobs to the point where they need to operate seamlessly in international commerce. The language of world business, of course, is still English and tackling that language can seem insurmountable to the French or Korean alike … until they meet Krista.
Krista’s biggest client at Anglais sur Demande is one of the world’s largest aerospace companies, one headquartered in the La Défense district outside Paris. She runs the company’s English program for employees in Quebec City, using MetaMoJi ClassRoom as she makes initial skills assessments, divides the trainees into individual or group class modules, and then launches her formal instruction curriculum.
Says Krista: “My individual units offer each trainee personalized work on language specifics from grammar exercises during speech and accent reduction. The group classes are designed for building confidence when speaking with peers – learning how to debate, negotiate, and present topics in an office or conference setting.”
Those in Krista’s small classes in Quebec City include a rainbow of diversity, mostly employees based in Quebec, but all in need of quick language skills to navigate and negotiate and present across Canada and North America.
Adds Krista: “The classes frequently include non-English speakers that must, in short order, review and evaluate technology projects where most of the workforce is English-speaking. Others are involved in training English-speaking software engineers in ‘Scrum methodology’ – a Japanese-led revolution in code writing that emphasizes collaboration and team development.”
