Blended Learning

Combine On-Line Learning with Teaching Excellence.

Blended Learning to Accelerate English Proficiency

The Neuron English programs are adaptive, technology-based tools that allow each student to receive differentiated instruction and progress at their own pace.

While much of the work can be done independently, teachers play a critical role in reinforcing the concepts covered in the programs and intervening when students have difficulties.

THE ADVANTAGES OF BLENDED LEARNING

PRODUCTIVITY IS INCREASED – FOR BOTH TEACHERS AND STUDENTS
After completing the Fast ForWord program, students typically become more productive because they are more focused and confident, and are better able to understand and retain what is taught in the classroom. When cognitive ability improves, learning is accelerated and behavioural issues are often reduced.
STUDENTS MOVE AT THEIR OWN PACE AND EXCEL

The programs progressively build cognitive, language, and reading skills, adapting to provide individualised challenge and feedback to each learner.

Within a short time of starting the program, a group of students will be on different learning paths based on individual strengths and weaknesses.

STUDENTS RECEIVE “JUST-IN-TIME” INTERVENTION

Students receive immediate feedback indicating whether an answer is correct or incorrect.

They also get immediate feedback on pronunciation in the teachable moment when they stumble on saying a word or get stuck on a word they do not know while reading aloud.

PROBLEM-SOLVING IS TAUGHT IN MULTIDISCIPLINARY UNITS

Within the Reading Assistant program, about half of the content is non-fiction, and much of that relates to science and social studies. Students must answer both guided reading questions and quiz (comprehension) questions for each selection. The program provides teachers with lesson plans enabling them to extend the learning within these thematic units to other content areas.

TEACHERS GROUP STUDENTS MORE EFFECTIVELY

Error reports allow teachers to see exactly what mistakes students are making as well as level indicators (Emerging, Developing and Proficient).

They also get immediate feedback on pronunciation in the teachable moment when they stumble on saying a word or get stuck on a word they do not know while reading aloud.

STUDENTS CONSTRUCT MEANING

rather than just memorising (or forgetting) facts.

Each year brings additional demands of examinations and standards and increased rigor in content areas This means that students must have cognitive skills that are strong enough to allow them to truly understand, assimilate and generalise classroom instruction.

Blended Learning for Today’s Generation

The internet allows us to learn and experience the world in a new way. Blended learning can help make the most of it for a generation of students for whom technology is a way of life.

Technology isn’t replacing teachers but it certainly can enhance both learning and teaching opportunities and effectiveness.
