What Types of Students Calvert Learning Is Right For?

More and more districts across the United States are seeking the benefits of a trusted elementary online curriculum option. Edmentum’s Calvert Learning, which provides proven, project-based curriculum for K–5 students, is meeting this need for educators, learning guides, and students alike by supporting a variety of diverse learning needs and situations.

Young students using Calvert Learning curricula benefit from a personalized approach, whether they’re in a traditional brick-and-mortar classroom or a virtual setting. Let’s explore three different types of learners that Calvert Learning is prepared to support.

Traditional In-District Students

Students who opt to learn in the physical classroom can benefit greatly from a blended learning approach. This learning model is comprised of digital activities, progress tracking, and automatic grading and feedback, combined with the benefits of in-person instruction and interaction. Calvert Learning features comprehensive digital programs in English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies, and more. Teachers are accessible to support students as they work dependently and independently.

Blended learning has the potential to optimize the learning experience for students if there’s a shift in instruction due to an interruption such as bad weather days or periods of quarantine. Students will still have the ability to work on assignments and communicate any concerns to their teacher in an integrated learning experience.

The true blend of instruction makes it convenient for educators to stay on task with lesson plans and gives students an element of control over where, when, and how they work.

Virtual Students

With so much going on in the world, if you’re finding an increasing population of families who are electing to keep their child at home, you may need a flexible curriculum that can be used inside of a 100-percent virtual setting and also ensures that those enrollments remain in your district. Whether you elect to carry this out using your own in-district teachers or want to pair curriculum with Edmentum’s state-certified virtual teachers through EdOptions Academy, we have you covered.

We understand that virtual learning requires a specific level of support. Calvert Learning is designed to engage and motivate learning for all students and carefully monitor daily activities and student attendance. The Calvert Learning platform makes it easy for educators to gain insight into student progress, pacing, and assessment results and to take action by providing intervention, acceleration, and customized feedback.

Parents, guardians, and caregivers—who are known as family learning guides when using Calvert Learning—are encouraged and coached to play an active role in their child’s learning by aiding in accountability, supporting understanding, and providing general encouragement.

Homebound or Hospitalized Students

Learning doesn’t have to stop because students are not in the physical classroom. Calvert Learning makes it possible for students to still have a fun, effective, and comprehensive learning experience wherever they are. Regardless of if a hospitalization or homebound situation is needed for a short period of time or the long term, these learners will have the means to stay on track with structured instruction supported by their teacher.

Students will have a daily schedule built into the Calvert Learning platform that will detail lessons and activities day by day. Students can see lessons they’ve already completed and get quick access to in-progress work. If students ever have concerns or questions related to the content, they can communicate directly with their teacher inside the program.

Districts and parents also have the option to purchase print resources so that students can still learn and practice while offline. This makes learning even more convenient for those students who may not physically be able to sit in front of a computer screen for extended periods of time. Furthermore, this ensures that students are always learning no matter what setting they’re in and that they still have a teacher at their disposal for answering questions and clarifying concepts.
