Edgenuity, a leading provider of online and blended learning solutions, today introduced its powerful new student experience, designed to drive deeper student engagement and improve student achievement. Available this summer, the new platform was developed to help schools and districts realize the full potential of their online and blended learning models.
Edgenuity courses are also now tablet compatible for schools and districts making tablets available to students as part of their digital strategies – a feature that is unique among online and blended learning solutions.
“Our new platform delivers an immersive, student-centered, personalized experience that ensures students will be well-prepared to succeed in college and career,” said Sari Factor, CEO of Edgenuity. “Its development was grounded in three things: research that shows how students learn best; our experience from more than fifteen years of close interaction with students and educators; and finally our data, which shows that students who become more engaged in the curriculum achieve more. Together, these factors create a powerful solution to help students achieve academic success.”
Based on evidence that indicates the more time spent on task, the better the academic performance, the new platform offers significant enhancements to drive student engagement and keep students actively involved in their learning experience, including:
The new tools also complement a feature introduced by Edgenuity last year, the CloseReaderTM, a text mark-up and language support tool that supports the in-depth reading and interpretation of complex texts. Taken together, this platform supports the shift to Common Core State Standards by promoting an enriched learning experience that enables mastery of subjects through more problem-solving and analysis.
The new platform builds on Edgenuity’s core offering of engaging online courses, with instruction delivered by highly qualified, on-screen teachers who provide direct instruction, explain concepts, model strategies and make real-world connections. The customized instruction and ongoing feedback delivered through Edgenuity motivates students to take responsibility for their own learning and success. As students develop the ability to manage their own learning, they build essential skills that will position them for academic, career, and life achievements.
