As a part of a pilot program for innovative educations, the K-12 Teachers Alliance provided free licensing to several Illinois schools and one in Columbia.
In Illinois, KTA allotted free licensing of eLearn Assignments to Thomas Kelly High School (Chicago), Rich South School District (Park Forest), Oak Lawn High School (Oak Lawn) and St. Joseph School (Bradley) for either six months or one year. Colegio Panamericana in Columbia was also granted a free 6-month trial to utilize as an instructional tool for their international student population.
In total, more than 2,300 students benefited from the use of this innovative learning technology thanks to KTAs pilot program.
eLearn Assignments is an interactive learning technology aligned to the Common Core Standards and designed to engage students in the exploration of breaking national and international news events. KTA developed the web-based learning application that is easy for teachers and students to use and doesnt require any additional software or hardware investments for schools.
“eLearn Assignments is a great way for you to have your students practice and improve their reading and test taking skills, said Karen Smith of Oak Lawn High School. I love to use it as an opening assignment for my students. It gets them talking about current events, and they enjoy debating with each other.”
Educators are using eLearn Assignment in almost every U.S. state, along with teachers and classroom in Canada, Mexico, Columbia and India.
Using the eLearn Assignments web-based platform, teachers choose, customize, assign and auto-grade assignments with a few clicks of the mouse.
