We have to now focus on the 21st Century student. The student experience has changed and instruction must also, to promote equity in learning. Schools are not all brick and mortar, they also thrive in online learning, which is now a graduation requirement. Classroom practices must evolve to provide the best learning opportunities for all students.
In Education Secretary John King’s letter on goals for 2016 he writes,
“Our work in 2016 must be measured by the progress we make toward educational opportunity for all … My first priority is to build on this Administration’s strong focus on equity and excellence at every level of our education system, in every school.”
All students must have the same educational opportunity to succeed. CCI Learning has developed a solution called Jasperactive that teaches one of the top three skills required for jobs today, Microsoft Office. Jasperactive addresses individualized learning for each student within a diverse classroom setting by instantly measuring the individual’s understanding of Microsoft Office desktop applications, and prescribing a personalized course.
With a five step Prescriptive Learning Pathway, Jasperactive provides a human centered experience that stimulates excellence in the acquisition of understanding. This begins with a Benchmark test that determines the student’s skill level and builds a prescribed course using only the lessons the student requires. This is not a simulation, students learn directly within the Microsoft Office environment. This provides the best possible learning experience.
CCI Learning’s Vice President of US Education Strategy Jana Hambruch speaks to this,
“We absolutely need to promote equity in the classroom, Jasperactive creates an individualized learning plan for each student with comprehension based learning, enabling every student to achieve a measurable 21st century global Microsoft Office Specialist certification.”
Jasperactive is an homage to all teachers who continue to inspire their students to master and maximize their learning potential and reach for their greatness. In Education Secretary John King’s letter he also writes,
“I want us to focus on ways to lift up the teaching profession and to ensure that our teachers are prepared for the realities of today’s diverse classrooms and supported once they’re on the job.”
With Jasperactive, teachers are in control as they can build their own tests and isolate lessons and apply them to learning objectives. They have the ability to choose how much they want to intervene in the learning process. Teachers can adjust question parameters allowing for infinite variations of the same learning objective.
Jasperactive embraces what learners know so they can focus on what they don’t. It is the world’s first kinesthetic Microsoft Office learning and validation system mapped to the Microsoft Office Specialist Global Standard.
CCI Learning strives to celebrate uniqueness and set each student up for educational success through comprehension based learning. With Jasperactive, students of all levels can work through their individualized learning plan because we recognize that no two students learn the same.
Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.
