As I research products designed to differentiate instruction while increasing Reading and Math achievement, I will post details and videos here. This will provide a 'catalog' of technology-rich programs we can review at budget time.
- "From Grades 2-12, Achieve3000® solutions provide the first web-based, individualized learning solutions scientifically proven to accelerate reading comprehension, vocabulary, writing proficiency and performance on high stakes tests. ONE high interest topic for the entire class,
scientifically matched to each student's individual Lexile™ reading
level." Watch the videos below or read all about KidBiz3000, the solution for our 2nd and 3rd graders at www.achieve3000.com.
[firstname.lastname@example.org can share some data with you regarding our program's effectiveness with almost tripling students reading comprehension levels. For a 500 student package the cost would be $23,450 that includes 3-days of PD.]
- Symphony Math, from Lexia, requires 30-min/week on the computer in the lab. See the video at http://symphonylearning.com.
- Big Universe is a PK-gr. 8 tool (see the video at http://www.biguniverse.com/learnmore/play#video) Big Universe deserves an A+ "By providing kids with the opportunity to not only read but to create their own materials for others to read, making the goals of writing and publishing a reality for many would-be writers in the elementary classroom, Big Universe deserves an A+."
