Understanding the Correlation between Teacher and Student Behavior in the Classroom and Its Consequent Academic Performance

Adson Damasceno, Andressa Ferreira, Francisco Oliveira

Abstract

Education in Brazil has reflected in students’ poor academic performance. To reverse this scenario, we propose a technological ecosystem for classroom management which we call Classroom Management (GSA, acronym in Portuguese for Gestão de Sala de Aula). The technology focuses on increasing teenagers’ performance and reducing dropout rates. The GSA promotes student engagement in classroom activities; allows the monitoring of students while performing these activities; creates channels of communication between teacher and student; automatically addresses the level of understanding of the class; promotes student participation in class discussions. We tested the GSA and got promising results: 1) For more than seventy percent of the students, the use of technology made them understand the subject better; 2) 85% of them reported that the GSA increased their participation in the classroom activities; 3) For more than 90% of the students, the class has become more interesting, and; 4) 88% of them would like to use the system in all disciplines. For teachers, the GSA: 1) Has not become an object of distraction in the classroom (opinion, 92% of them); 2) It made the students more participative (89%); 3) It made the class more dynamic (82%) and 4) Would like to use the GSA in all their classes (81%).
