This blog is the 8th of the 10-part blog series introducing you to the 10 major new features currently available for your use this school year.
New Feature 8 of 10: Just-In-Time Instruction Lessons available 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.
Below we answer some of the most frequently asked questions in reference to lessons:
1. Are lessons automatically launched?
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. Students can also launch On-Demand lessons in the middle of an adaptive or targeted practice session by clicking the Learn button at any time.
See below from a students perspective. The lesson is launched just-in-time for the student to review and then proceed independently!
2. Is there a lesson in every practice session?
Instruction Lessons are available for all concepts and all standards that are available on ScootPad. Students can launch lessons in the middle of adaptive and targeted practice sessions by clicking the Learn button at any time. The Learn button is disabled for Mastery Checks and Assessments.
3. Can teachers create lessons?
Yes, Teachers can create and then upload lessons, tag them with standards, share them with the learning community, and assign them to students. Easily track student completion and provide feedback!
4. Why aren’t my students able to see the lessons?
ScootPad delivers video lessons (embedded on ScootPad) to students via Vimeo and/or YouTube. Vimeo is the default video service and if Vimeo is not accessible, YouTube will automatically become the video service. If your district/school has YouTube or Vimeo blocked for student devices, it is still possible to enable the embedded ScootPad lesson videos for students. See below for more details.
