In today’s classrooms, teachers and students are using a myriad of online programs on a daily basis. Of course, we believe in the power of technology, but we also recognize that working across so many different programs poses some logistical challenges. Through our new partnership with ClassLink, we’re happy to provide educators with another option to streamline classroom and technology management.
When you do head back to school and log in to Study Island, you will notice a few changes. As a lot of you know, last summer, we released a number of features that positively impacted the experience of students using Study Island. This summer, we focused on you, the teacher, and ways that we could improve your experience using Study Island with your students.
In July 2018, Edmentum releases the third course in our redesigned high school science series: Chemistry! Chemistry (v6.0) is built from the ground up to align to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Like all of our science courses, Chemistry emphasizes scientific inquiry; hands-on, minds-on investigating; and real-world relevance and application. Here’s what you need to know about our revamped Chemistry course.
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!
Connected learners develop networks and shared learning. They use collaborative online spaces and social media and engage in conversations across the world, and they bring that learning back to the classroom. Educators should have the same opportunity.
Modern classrooms are being transformed by technology. Recent, dramatic increases in student access to technology through bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and 1:1 initiatives have provided teachers with blended and virtual learning opportunities for their students that can fundamentally change how learning occurs. As the traditional classroom evolves into an environment rich in technology, educators are looking for guidance on how to choose the best educational technology (edtech) solutions.
One way that administrators can lighten their teachers' workloads is through educational technology (edtech). When district and school administrators are looking to implement new edtech, they are often looking only at the ways the programs directly help students. Because teachers can impact student achievement more than any other factor at a school, choosing edtech programs that make their jobs easier will result in better outcomes for students.
Effective personalized learning is all about finding a delicate balance between offering students choice in how, when, and what pace they learn, while simultaneously providing them with the individualized attention needed to truly push them forward academically. For instructors in the classroom, providing this kind of tailored experience for 20 or more students is a challenging (and at times overwhelming) undertaking. Online tools can be a valuable resource to save teachers precious time by taking care of some of the legwork of providing students with the right content, as well as sifting through data to find the real insights. However, regardless of how high-quality a program may be, students won’t enjoy use it if it doesn’t offer an interesting, enjoyable experience.
Providing a seamless integration between our programs and a district partner’s data systems will help to make the overall job of the educator much easier, especially on a day-to-day basis. Edmentum’s commitment to data interoperability can be seen through our strong partnerships and involvement in the interoperability community as outlined below.
