- Pre-teach, re-teach and enrich: In the grand scheme of education, the time teacher have to provide direct instruction in any one area is very short. Our programs can offer a great way to pre-teach, re-teach and offer enrichment and extension for concepts covered in the classroom. For many students, this pre-exposure, review and/or additional practice can make a big difference in their ability to quickly grasp and master concepts enhancing the effectiveness of teacher-directed instruction.
- Automatic, scaffolded feedback and support: When students require more than preview, review or additional practice for a concept to click, our programs are able to provide automatic, scaffolded feedback and support to help students get and stay on track. Of course, this requires much more from a program than simply pointing out right or wrong answers. Programs that respond to incorrect answers with multiple levels of guiding feedback, refer students to previous instruction where the concept is covered and provide tutorials on concepts that prove challenging can initiate the intervention process immediately right when the student struggles. For some students, this can allow them to continue to make progress and build mastery without intense teacher intervention.
- Teacher alerts: For some students, no amount of technology-driven intervention can substitute for high-quality, one-on-one teacher intervention. In those cases, our programs raise a red flag to alert a teacher when critical, intense intervention is necessary can make a huge difference in the length of time and attention required to bridge the gap and bring a student back on track, again making more effective use of the precious little time teachers have for individual intervention.
