  • 10/09/10 Edison Learning, Inc. The foundation of EdisonLearning’s approach to education The Four Cornerstones approach ensures that EdisonLearning solutions are holistic – both comprehensive and cohesive, with all parts interacting and supporting one another for a whole that is far more than the sum of its parts.
  • Advisor This certified teacher serves as the primary contact for the family of the student for their duration at eAcademy and any siblings that also enroll. The responsibility of this teacher is to oversee the student’s experience with the school and to provide feedback to student and family on all school related functions from field trips to state mandated testing. Asynchronous Grader This highly qualified instructor is responsible for grading all work submitted in the online courses that they are assigned. As all cumulative assessments are 25% open ended responses this teacher must correct student work within 3 days of student submission of an assessment. Synchronous Tutor This highly qualified subject specific teacher is responsible for managing the synchronous environment
  • PARENT PORTAL COMMUNICATIONS TOOLS A partnership with EdisonLearning boasts a built-in model for setting up student organizations and associations that meet student needs. Regional community focused events Planned field trips Extra-curricular activities Proms and other social engagements Virtual field trips
  • Personalized EdisonLearning creates a customized instructional plan for every student, adapting it to their schedule, pace and academic needs. Online Students plug in from anywhere via the Internet to a modern-day “classroom without walls.” Learning eAcademy students connect to outstanding courses taught by high quality teachers offering individualized attention.
  • Each EdisonLearning eCourse contains 180 individual lessons (45 lessons per 9 week part). Every lesson focuses on one or two standards-based objectives that are clear and attainable. This structure helps students maintain focus and motivation by accomplishing achievable goals in each lesson, a technique which has been shown to foster success in online learning. Each lesson can be delivered as a standalone that contains clear prerequisite skill identification. This Modular Structure allows the courses to be adapted to individual student needs and enables application to varied academic situations. Full-year courses consist of 4 parts, each containing 3 units of 15 lessons each. Assessments are given at the end of each lesson, unit, and part.
  • EdisonLearning’s daily assessment and tracking system is included with each course. The system allows immediate intervention when students fall below school-defined achievement levels.
  • Weekly Quiz (lessons 5 and 10 per Unit) Longer assessments (19 questions) Include Open Response questions Unit Exam Cover the entire Unit Approximately 35 questions
  • + the Research Center… NEXT SLIDE….
  • Research Center To further engage students with their course work, the highly interactive Research Center offers a true-to-life learning environment for students, teachers and advisors, and administrators. The various activities and features of the Research Center are based on a virtual world where students travel through different chat room environments. Navigating through buildings, rooms, fl oors and doors, students, as their own custom “avatars,” tour a virtual world of content interacting with each other and their instructors along the way. Students can see other avatars in a room as they enter and live chat. They can also keep a “friends” list - as they would on other social networks. The heightened engagement that results from use of these dynamic features aids in skill acquisition and the collaborative environment encourages students to help each other with coursework.
  • Students can… Enjoy the Arcade when interventions are completed. Collaborate with students and teachers in the Learning Lab . Share art and creative works in the Art Gallery . The Art Gallery encourages extracurricular achievement and builds community. Experience lesson content coming to life in the Sabotage STEM activity/game. Visit the World Language HQ and learn while they play the SAGA activity
  • Students can access content residing on multiple learning systems, as well as view grades, academic progress, and announcements, and communicate with teachers in one consolidated view. Teachers/Advisors can assess student activity, attendance, log-in duration and content accessed, communicate with students and parents, manage grades and generate custom reports. Parents can monitor academic progress, grades, attendance, and course work, and communicate with instructors. Administrators can set up and administer courses and scheduling, enrollment and registration, materials fulfillment, and transcripts, as well as generate state and other essential reporting.
  • Instructional Tools provide users with real time information on progress towards achievement goals, and the means to deliver interventions for students who need them. In addition, this toolset fosters the creation of a community that engages students, teachers and advisors, parents and administrators… all key individuals in the drive for student success.
  • Research shows the positive correlation that effective communication has on student achievement. So in an environment where educators, parents, and students have limited face-to-face contact, apprehension is expected.

It’s completely different than a traditional school, and it’s completely different than what you think. It really is a first rate school.” “ My favorite classes are American History and Life Skills, because it is an elective that is helping me prepare for life after high school…using credit cards, living on my own, really useful stuff.” “ I like Provost Academy because if I need to I can go to school at night or on the weekends.  Also, I can attend school at my own pace. If I’m behind in one subject or ahead in another subject,  I don’t have to rush myself or wait for others to catch up.” “ For us what separates Provost from other traditional high schools is that it allows the flexibility that our daughter needs to pursue her interest in the performing arts and ballet.” A Spotlight on Satisfaction Feedback from Provost Academy South Carolina

    • The Results
    • In its first year, CAOLA program had 13 participating districts. The program has now grown to 17 school districts in various regions of the state with more growth in the fall of 2010.
    • The program started with 17 students successfully earning summer school credits. CAOLA now has 230 students enrolled in over 70 different courses.
    • The CAOLA model has proven to be cost-effective, saving districts thousands of dollars when compared to dollars they would need to spend on sending students to virtual charter schools.
    “ The CAOLA program has helped our students to access courses that they typically would not be able to take, whether it is due to limited offerings or scheduling conflicts. This year one of our students was able to take a Chinese course. Financially, it doesn’t make sense for our district to hire a teacher to teach this course, but eCourses in the CAOLA program gave our student the opportunity for a valuable l earning experience.” - Kevin Roberts, Director of Curriculum & CAOLA Site Coordinator Big Spring School District © 2010 EdisonLearning, Inc. All rights reserved The Challenge School districts in Pennsylvania were facing two challenges. First, many districts did not have the resources to provide students with online learning programs. With no option in the district, increasing numbers of students were leaving to attend virtual charter or other non-district schools. Secondly, small districts were struggling to provide expanded course selections for their students. Courses, such as AP courses and foreign languages like Chinese, were not available due to lack of means to hire teachers for these specific topics. Capital Area Intermediate Unit (CAIU) wanted to help its member districts address these challenges. They sought to redesign their high school offerings to increase learning options for high school students through online learning. The Solution CAIU established the Capital Area Online Learning Association (CAOLA) in 2009 to provide flexible online learning options to its member districts. Partnering with EdisonLearning, they expanded their high school offerings through EdisonLearning’s eCourses. CAOLA was also able to offer a full-time online high school program through EdisonLearning’s eAcademy.
    • According to a recent U.S. Department of Education report, "thirty years of research shows that greater family involvement in children's learning is a critical link to achieving a high-quality education and a safe disciplined learning environment for every student.”
    There is a positive correlation between parent satisfaction and student achievement. © 2010 EdisonLearning, Inc. All rights reserved Parent Satisfaction “ My sixth grader’s reading has improved dramatically, and I’ve watched her academic performance go sky high!” – Parent, EdisonLearning Partner School 95% of parents give EdisonLearning Partner Schools an overall satisfaction Grade of A or B . 95%
