DREAMBOX

"Through DreamBox, we believe all children can excel at learning, no matter where they start, where they live, or who they are.

  1. Children persist in learning when they are engaged, challenged and having fun.
  2. Students are teachers as well as learners who can drive their own progress.
  3. Teachers need support for differentiating instruction to a broad range of learners.
  4. To thrive as life-long learners requires mastery of critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

Our future depends on helping the next generation learn how to learn. DreamBox Learning believes that all students can exceed their own and others’ expectations. With the right learning environment, one that adapts intelligently to each individual’s unique skills and needs, and one that is student-centered and student driven, we can help millions of learners achieve this vision."

 

Khan Academy

Levels 2 - 5 use Khan Academy, focusing on arithmetic skills needed to know at all levels. "One way to help empower and drive students as they’re learning is to encourage them to monitor their own progress. This allows learners to track their own improvement, figure out what they need extra help on, and set their own goals."
