This blog is the 3rd of the 10-part blog series introducing you to the 10 major improvements and new features available for your use in the new school year.
Improvement 3 of 10: Just-In-Time Instruction Lessons when students need the most help. Students now have access to launch a lesson during practice (i.e. on-demand lessons), receive automatically pushed lessons when they struggle (i.e. time-out lessons) or when specifically assigned by their teachers.
Our instructional pedagogy is designed to give students experiences that are within their Zones of Proximal Development, thereby encouraging and advancing independent learning. Our instructional lessons are designed to deliver very clear, concise and focused instruction in engaging video format helping students learn the concept and apply their knowledge with a quick problem to solve.
Here’s several ways students can access instructional lessons:
1. On-Demand: Student initiated lesson during the practice session
Students can launch an instruction lesson in the middle of a practice session by clicking the Learn button at any time. They’ll receive an instruction lesson to learn the concept they’re presently working on in the practice. Once they watch the lesson, they can apply their knowledge by solving a quick problem in that concept.
2. Time-Out: ScootPad delivered lesson during the practice session
Time-out lessons are automatically pushed to the student during practice, giving students the opportunity to review and learn a concept when they start to struggle.
3. Assigned: Teacher assigned lessons
Teachers can assign any ready-made lessons (or their own uploaded lessons) to student(s), easily track student completion and provide feedback.
4. Upload Your Own Lessons
Upload your own lessons, tag them with standards, share them with your learning community, and assign them to students.
