Win the Race with Proven Solutions
Compass Learning can help you meet the five priorities of Race to the Top. Here's how:
1. Defining the Teacher’s Role in 21st Century Learning Environments
CompassLearning Odyssey enables teachers to do their jobs more proficiently than ever. Our Web-based curriculum allows educators to prescribe, instruct, and report on academic progress at the individual student level. It’s not about replacing teachers with online programs. It’s about empowering people who are passionate about education to help them do what they love: teach. Compass Learning’s online solutions provide teachers with the tools and information they need to make a difference in the lives of each child in their classroom.
2. Project-Based, Authentic Learning Tasks
Because today’s learning needs to be more hands-on to better prepare students for 21 century demands, Compass Learning offers in-depth and rigorous classroom projects that encourage critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity. We offer online tools that deepen and extend the student learning experience. For example, Odyssey Writer helps students construct, write, and present viable arguments when tasked with complex research projects. Odyssey Community is a social media tool that integrates 21st century skills by allowing students to collaborate with their teachers and peers in a closed, protected environment. And Odyssey Authentic Tasks is a great tool that teachers can use to assign students enrichment activities, such as videos to watch and class projects to complete.
3. Student-Driven Learning Paths, with Emphasis on Personalization of Instruction
CompassLearning Odyssey was specifically designed to help teachers provide a successful, personalized learning experience for each and every student. By utilizing current and confirmed research about the way young minds learn, our online products are designed to do the following: 1) assess each student’s interests, learning style, and expression style, 2) evaluate strengths and weaknesses in specified subject areas. Once these things are determined, our products will automatically prescribe a personalized learning path that includes engaging, rigorous curricula.
4. Mastery/Competency-Based Progression and Pacing
Time-based models of instruction are a thing of the past. Gradual mastery of content has been proven to be a more effective way of learning. Both Compass Learning products, Odyssey and Renzulli Learning, were developed so students can progress at a pace that is unique to their learning styles. We can help you reach each student whether they’re struggling to meet academic standards or working beyond grade-level expectations.
5. Flexible, Anytime/Everywhere Learning
We understand the 21st century learning environment is changing. We also know that each student is unique with his/her own set of specific priorities. That’s why Compass Learning’s online learning solutions can be accessed anytime, anywhere as long as there is an Internet connection. We believe that when students are empowered to work independently and at their own pace, they can accomplish more.
