  • 03/19/12 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.
