PRLog - May 15, 2014 - BROOKLYN, N.Y. -- With an increasingly wide range of abilities in one classroom, teachers face the challenge of designing personalized learning plans for many diverse needs. Unfortunately, time for strategy research is of short supply for teachers who are juggling multiple responsibilities within a very segmented school day.
The EdMod App
Education Modified has solved this problem by creating the EdMod App - a tool for teachers that makes it easy and efficient to find strategies for every need in their classroom. Users can quickly search by disability or skill - find hundreds of research-based strategies - tag strategies to specific students - and keep track of what works and what doesn’t work - thereby building a cumulative portfolio for each child.
“Here is one way to change schools... it’s about helping teachers do their jobs better, so that all students can succeed.” -Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, 2012
In a study by the Council for Exceptional Children, 40,000 teachers were polled from around the nation and 95% of them believed that differentiated assignments was one key factor in providing relevant learning experiences for students. Additionally, 90% said that resources for teachers to help differentiate instruction are essential for student achievement.
