Quality learning platforms can ease the burden of educators
Each year it seems as if schools are asked to do more and more. New standards, new regulations, and new curriculums all add to educators’ already overburdened workload. Fortunately, new tools also exist to make teachers’ jobs easier and to magnify their strengths so that students learn more. Knovva Academy’s proprietary learning platform is designed to enhance the learning experience for both teachers and students. With an all encompassing range of web-based applications, our learning platform is built to accommodate our growing roster of online and blended courses and our global in-person events as well. Teachers and students have all the resources they need to be successful whether they are at home, in the classroom, or on the go.
Students can log in to gain complete access to all of the lessons, modules, community forums, and assessment tools. Whether working on a course or preparing for an event, the platform enables them to connect and collaborate with one another through discussion boards, web-based word processors that allow for real time cooperation, social media tools, and private chats. This form of cross-cultural communication enriches the experience for students and gives them skills they will need to thrive in the 21st century. Teachers are able to log in to see how students are progressing, see where students are excelling or struggling, and message students who may be falling behind. Teachers also have access to all the resources they need to teach a Knovva Academy course, including lesson plans, hand outs, presentations, and more. They can also create forums just for their students so that, while students may benefit from the diverse perspectives of other students around the world taking the same course, they can also continue in class conversations at home. Quality, intuitive, and social learning platforms provide genuine solutions that meet the needs of today’s learners. By integrating them into their classrooms, educators can spend more time on what they are good at and less time on tasks that don’t add value to students’ learning. Students, and the hard working educators who serve them, deserve nothing less.
