Cracking the Code

Posted by MobyMax on Sep 5, 2017 8:00:00 AM

Motivating bored-but-gifted students using some fiery competition – and technology.

GUEST COLUMN | by Christopher Godshall 

There’s a lot of both media and academic attention paid to students with learning difficulties acting as barriers to acquiring knowledge, and rightly so. But teaching gifted and talented students poses its own set of challenges. Higher-achieving students can get bored easily or become impatient if they’re not given material that engages them academically. They can get frustrated if they find the pace in the classroom too slow. They also might yearn for a classroom that is more competitive than the one they’re in. Plus, not meeting these students’ needs for more challenging studies could squander the opportunity to push those students to new, exceptional heights.

As someone who has taught gifted and talented students for 16 years, I’m constantly on the lookout for ways to meet the needs of these pupils in a way that keeps them engaged, their parents informed, and me, as their teacher, at least a few steps ahead of them!

This summer, I turned to an edtech platform for the solution. The lessons I learned from our successes seemed worth sharing as a new school year gets underway.

Learning all summer long in the Falls School District

Posted by MobyMax on Aug 6, 2017 10:00:00 AM

Hundreds of Niagara Falls students are getting busy this summer — and they’re having fun while they do it.

The 900 or so students — more than ever before — are participating in the Niagara Falls School District’s Extended Learning Programs, created in response to research showing that over summer vacation, students lose too much of what they’ve learned during the school year.

“Ultimately, through the learning and instruction which we’re providing, we aim to avoid ‘summer slide’ or ‘brain drain’ when children do not continue to participate in activities and lessons learned throughout the school year,” said Cathy Sullivan, a coordinator of the extended learning programs.

Sessions are taking place at several elementary schools throughout the district and there is hope that the summer learning is making a difference in kids’ educational success.

“It’s far and away the greatest number of summer offerings ever; our best effort to increase instructional time throughout the year,” said Judie Glaser, community relations director for the district.

North Penn Works To Stem 'Summer Learning Loss'

Posted by MobyMax on Aug 1, 2017 11:32:27 AM

Children can lose more than two months of grade level equivalency in math over the summer, North Penn School District cautions

Shared By Justin Heinze (Patch Staff) -  July 31, 2017 5:49 pm ET

LANSDALE, PA — Children can lose more than two months of grade level equivalency in math over the summer, the North Penn School District cautions.

That's why they're working to offer ways to stem "summer learning loss" by encouraging students to practice math during their off months.

Many students have access to the Moby Max website (, which their teachers provided during the school year. On the Moby Max site, children are able to access lessons that are designed to match their learning needs. They are also able to practice basic facts. Retaining fact recall over the summer is important in being prepared to move ahead in math during the coming school year, the district said.

They also advised watching math enrichment videos on Youtube and accessing programing on and at the Khan Academy.

The district said the exercises are good for the developing mind of any child regardless of their career path, as they are often about logic and learning to think ahead. North Penn said that future scientists, lawyers, carpenters, and any number of other fields of expertise could benefit from these activities.

‘Lost in the Cracks’: Alabama District Brings Personalized Learning to Incarcerated Youth

Posted by MobyMax on Jul 11, 2017 10:00:00 AM

By: Jenny Abamu| EdSurge  July 11, 2017

The American prison system has been criticized for being a place of punishment instead of rehabilitation. In states such as Alabama, where youth as young as 14 can be tried as adults, going into the system can mean a lifetime of condemnation. However, one school district hopes a personalized virtual school program will offer incarcerated learners a second chance.

Superintendent William “Trey” Holladay is credited with being the brainchild behind the Renaissance School in Athens, Alabama. In 2015, after the state passed a law requiring each local board of education to have a virtual option for students in grades 9-12, the Athens City School District created Renaissance. The K-12 school is a part-virtual and part-blended learning space—meaning students from all over the state can attend the virtual school (which serves over 1000 students, according to the principal Nelson Brown) and students within a 70 mile radius can participate in the blended version of the school (which has approximately 300 to 400 students depending on the year).
