Video lessons for 3 – 8th grade students, $10/student with the purchase of a grade level package (printed & online teaching manual with Grading by Design)
As an option to teacher-delivered instruction, video lessons and online assessments have become invaluable tools in students’ educational experiences. Video lessons offer the convenience of learning at one's own pace, allowing students to rewind, pause, or fast-forward through content as needed. They also provide visual aids and demonstrations that can enhance understanding and engagement.
Unique instructional benefits:
• For students who were absent during teacher-delivered instruction, they allow students the ability to receive the instruction without being left behind.
• For students on Independent Study, they are a perfect vehicle for students to receive partial or full-year instruction without requiring teachers to design and grade individual instructional packets.
• For students performing below grade level, video lessons can supplement and support their understanding during grade-level instruction.
• For teachers, video lessons transfer teacher time from lesson delivery to time for close monitoring of student progress and responsive interventions.
Online assessments have revolutionized the way students are evaluated. They provide immediate feedback, allowing students to gauge their understanding and identify areas that require further improvement.
Online assessments and progress reports provide teachers with information to target intervention support to individuals or small groups. They provide adaptive learning experiences that cater to different learning styles and abilities.
They also provide data-driven insights into student performance, which can inform instructional strategies and personalized learning plans. Additionally, online assessments promote academic integrity by incorporating measures to prevent cheating, ensuring that students are assessed based on their true abilities and knowledge.
Overall, the value of video lessons and online assessments in education cannot be overstated. They provide flexible, engaging, and effective ways of delivering and evaluating instruction, benefiting both students and educators alike. As technology continues to advance, these tools are likely to play an increasingly important role in shaping the future of education.
