Unlike other credit recovery courses, Fuel Education has built courses from the ground up to support learners who may need additional motivation and remediation. We have created a motivational, self‐paced learning environment with embedded social‐emotional learning support, and growth‐mindset approach to help students reframe their struggles as opportunities for future success.
FuelEd’s Credit Recovery courses are designed for students who did not pass a course initially but learned enough to make a complete repetition of the course unnecessary. With our diagnostic‐driven model, students can test out of the material they previously mastered in a course so they can focus on the more difficult concepts they missed the first time around.
Thanks to the proliferation of new technology in the K-12 space, students and teachers are now engaging across devices and on increasingly fluid and customizable schedules, helping accommodate unique situations and reaching more young minds than ever before. Change management is an especially tricky undertaking in the K-12 space because of the high stakes. With so much emphasis on technology in the realm of academia today, schools with faulty IT workflows are putting students at an educational disadvantage compared to their peers at schools with more functional connectivity. When IT needs to introduce technologies that require the adoption of new workflows, these implementations need to be as seamless as possible. Read this eBook to learn strategies for streamlining implementation of new technology.
