Navigating your state education agency’s website or staying up to date on the latest education news can feel like a daunting task with education terms and trends that you may be unfamiliar with. We wanted to help you stay in the know by breaking down the important points of these terms and definitions so that you can know what’s going on in your child’s classroom. Let’s get started.
Worldwide, more and more students are taking advantage of virtual education options. As students, parents, and educators embrace the individualization and flexibility of online learning, this growth is likely to continue. With this in mind, it’s becoming critical for school and district administrators to have a plan in place to offer virtual options for students and, even more importantly, to make sure that students are set up for success in these programs.
Right now, teachers around the nation are meeting new students; setting goals for the school year; and preparing lessons, assessments, and more. If you're a teacher, you’re probably reflecting on your instructional style, approach, and best practices. What are some of the successes you've had? What are some changes that you think you could make? To help you start another successful school year, we’ve pulled together some resources to line up with common educator goals for a little extra support when you’re planning!
At Edmentum, we’re fiercely committed to working with our educator partners to understand the unique ways they’re approaching these challenges through technology. And, as a part of those ongoing conversations, we often find that questions arise. How do I ensure that students meet proficiency expectations AND growth goals? If I’m using multiple programs, how can they work together, and what does an implementation actually look like? Well, rather than summarizing insights from customers near and far, we thought it was time to go deep and let you hear from one such educator who’s employing two Edmentum programs, Exact Path and Study Island, to drive toward rigorous outcomes that align with her goals and her students’ goals.
Small changes happen every day as teachers find new ways to integrate technology, connect with each other, and give students the skills the 21st century requires of them. These changes tend to grow into trends and, if applicable, best practices.

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.
The end of the school year brings about a lot of reflection. Many teachers look back on how the year went and students remember what they learned. At Edmentum, things are no different! We love to look back on past blog posts to see what really resonated with our audience throughout the school year.
