Motivate and Engage Your Students with Adaptive Learning Tools

Moderated by Kevin Hogan, eSchool News, Editor-at-Large

View this webinar to hear from 5th grade Teacher, Deborah Grimes from Oregon, as she discusses her experience with motivating students using Stride, how she implemented it in her classroom, how she utilizes the data, and why her students love it.

Motivating students can be challenging. Fuel Education’s StrideTM uses games and rewards to inspire students to master difficult math, language arts, reading, and science concepts. Stride’s adaptive technology guides each student grades Pre-K through 8 to practice where he or she needs it most—and then serves up a variety of content that’s lively and engaging, rich with a spirit of community and competition.

Benchmark and formative assessments ensure students are at grade level for end-of-course and end-of-year tests. Real-time data helps teachers track student performance and provides details that let them know precisely where students need interventions. The result? Learning that’s focused and learning that’s fun—a formula that fosters learning that’s effective.
