Skies s a collaborative learning environment designed at Caltech University by Julius Su, & Victor Kam. The vision of these founders was to create a critically advanced and innovative learning system utilizing tools and technology for actively engaging and encouraging students in STEM learning. SKIES integrates merging technology with academics at multiple grade levels. It allows the teacher and students to interact with one another in a collaborative mainstream environment. SKIES allows for the integration of media within the classroom environment. Students respond not just to the teacher but to each other as well. The teacher can see students actively engaged in their learning. Students have the ability to rate the teacher’s lesson; this allows the teacher the ability to focus on areas where students appear to be Struggling.
