An Informed Parent
Navigating a child's education journey is often left up to the schools with little input from the parent. Parents feel helpless to help and discouraged to try.
Parents need to know why education decisions are made and where as a parent, one can have the biggest impact on what their child will learn.
The Parents Leaning Advocacy Network (PLAN) creates an informed parent that can help motivate and direct their child's education. Our team works with parents and parenting organizations to get past the numbers and to the heart of the pedagogy.
Inspired Rigorous Content
The Digital One Room Schoolhouse program aligns alternative support resources around the teacher’s pacing and common core standards to an online environment where students can personalize their learning.
By partnering with educational platform technologies already familiar to teachers, DORS allows OST and after school programs to participate more fully in the learner’s academic development by offering academic and experiential activities, as well as online games that match the actual common core standard and pacing guide of the classroom teacher.
Quality Assessment of Digital Learning
Computer Technology is one of the most powerful tools of modern times, yet some students have very little access to this power. The digital divide is more than access to a computer in a room; its about the learning that can happen when it can be mastered. Teaching children how to master the computer and harness its knowledge can only happen if the schools themselves can integrate that new and independent knowledge to work.
We helps schools integrate the new blended learning information with existing assessment and student information systems (SIS).
Community as a Resource
How can schools leverage the larger community resources to extend the learning time of the student? We help schools document the tangible and intangible resources that make up the social fabric of the larger community.
We view communities as educational resources to be leveraged, not deficits to be remedied.
Through interviews, forums, and an audit of district data systems we reveal patterns in resource and activities and information that paint a picture of a landscape previously unrevealed. It is with this road map that we begin our strategic planning with a district.
