"We're seeing students learning about 6 months of academic material every 6 weeks. We love it."
Dr. Kevin Brown, Trinity Christian Community
mSchools are public, accredited, and local.
Individualized instruction and differentiated learning at at the core of the mSchool model. Students currently spend a minimum of one hour each day in exactly such an environment. Each student enters the learning lab and finds their assigned computer. Before class begins, students who have been flagged as working inefficiently or needing additional assistance receive specific lesson instructions to ensure placement into appropriate intervention tracks.
Students then work on curriculum tailored to their specific skills, meaning that some students receive intensive remediation while other students accelerate multiple grade levels ahead of their traditional school peers. The adaptive learning platform has the power to deliver millions of different learning paths, each one tailored to a student’s specific learning needs and level of comprehension. The result is an effective, engaging, and highly individualized learning environment for every student.
Not only does this approach allow the learning environment to be more responsive to each student, it also ensures that mSchool has longitudinal data confirming the student’s proficiency in multiple lessons and using a variety of our virtual manipulatives. Algorithms present students with a range of problem set sizes for each objective in the common core standards, adjusted to the academic level for which they are prepared. Data on how accurately and quickly students answer problems is monitored automatically, and in turn adjusts the number of problems students must solve to achieve proficiency.
