How Does This Help?
Learning Conductor gives students as many exercises, with explanatory solutions, as they need to master a given topic. Thanks to the parameterization engine, every exercise set is different from the previous one, and students will rarely see the same version of a particular problem. Students can work at their own pace, on any computer with an Internet connection, any time of the day or night - inside or outside the classroom. The worked-example solutions, delivered immediately after the student submits an answer to an exercise, foster error recognition and problem-solving skills, transforming assessment into deep and lasting learning. Real-time progress reports let students know right away how they’re doing in all the required areas of the curriculum, and / or how they’re likely to do on an upcoming test. From these reports, they or their teachers can generate targeted sets of exercises to shore up weaknesses.
Parents and families:
With Learning Conductor, families can be sure their children are receiving the highest quality educational support available. Learning Conductor’s standards-aligned exercises and worked-example solutions have been developed through years of research by mathematics educators. Parents and other caregivers can easily track their children’s progress through Learning Conductor’s real-time progress reports, which they can access anytime over the Internet. Learning Conductor’s unique technologies also make it one of the most affordable math instruction solutions available today.
Teachers and other education providers:
Learning Conductor’s flexible technologies complement teachers’ existing practices, allowing them to address the needs of individual students and preventing lagging students from holding the class back as a whole. The system’s assessment-guided approach to learning enables educators to incorporate standards-based assessment into everyday classroom activities. Instead of “teaching to the test,” educators can now use standards-based assessment items for effective instruction. Real-time reports allow teachers to track students’ learning progressions, and to review and their strategies accordingly. Learning Conductor’s parameterization technologies also make it one of the most affordable standards-aligned mathematics instruction solutions available.
Research and philanthropic organizations may be interested in using Learning Conductor for education improvement programs. The system can be used in a wide variety of educational settings, including after-school programs, adult schools, mathematics catch-up programs, community centers, and traditional classrooms. We are also seeking partners for the next phase of Learning Conductor’s development. Please contact us for more details.
The Distributed Learning Workshop licenses its parameterization technologies to companies building online assessment systems. Please contact us for details.
