The flexibility that online learning provides is one of its greatest benefits, but it also requires a different level of self-motivation and accountability than traditional classroom learning.
Adopting any new technology into a school takes time, money, and a LOT of research. Implementing any educational technology (edtech) solution can be a decision long in the making. How can you be sure that you’ve covered all your bases before buying? We’ve compiled our best resources into this handy guide to help your decision-making process!
Over the past several years, Edmentum has solicited feedback from our customers through surveys, classroom visits, focus groups, and usability tests. A consistent theme emerged from this research: our products were too complicated for educators who simply did not have time to spend learning how to use all the features we provided to them. The company responded by forming an experience design team with the mission of simplifying our products and saving educators time.
Our research team here at Edmentum was honored to have Marzano Research peer review a research project that we conducted for our classroom practice and assessment program, Study Island. Through that review, Marzano confirmed our findings about the effectiveness of Study Island, and we also uncovered four best practices to help students get the most out of online practice.
Edmentum’s EdOptions Academy provides students with a personalized and flexible alternative path to the ever-so crucial high school diploma, while offering the same caliber of quality instruction and standards alignment of traditional classrooms.
