4 Tips for Selecting an Online Learning Partner

This is the first blog in a series where we will explore excellence in online curriculum for secondary education and what to consider when partnering with an online learning provider.

Personalized learning comes in many different forms but the foundation for success is the same: selecting a high-quality, rigorous curriculum that accelerates and deepens student understanding. But not all digital curriculum is the same and not all will enable teachers to design a variety of rich learning experiences that meet the individual needs of every student. 

Online Learning to Support Intervention and Remediation for Struggling Students

When students are below or at risk of falling below grade level in one or more subjects, it’s an immense challenge for teachers to meet their needs while continuing to meet the needs of the rest of the students in their class. If struggling students don’t get the support they need, they often lose motivation, fall further behind, score lower on high stakes exams and become at risk of dropping out.
