Extending Instruction for Distance Learning

Distance Learning

During this time the Imagine Learning team, hopes you are doing well and staying safe. We are here for you during this challening time. For this reason, we have come up with a special edition Smore Newsletter. The purpose is to provide information and tutorial videos that will help you extend instruction beyond the classroom with our digital and offline resources.

Playlists

Playlists are created via the Activity Explorer to extend instruction. Educators can create and assign playlists for whole group instruction, small group instruction, or to individualize instruction.


When to purposefully assign a playlist.

  • Front load or preview vocabulary.
  • Learn and practice new skills.
  • Review previously learned skills.
  • Practice skills that students did not master.
  • Enrichment activities for advanced students.


Things to keep in mind when creating/assigning a playlist.

  • Assigned playlist will become available for students during their next session.
  • Will district prescribed learning pathway assigned by Imagine Learning.
  • Usage data is recorded.
  • Scoring data is not displayed in reports.
  • Recording and written responses will be available in the portfolio.
  • Students may be assigned one playlist at a time.



For additional information on Playlists for remediation or extending instruction, we recommend that you watch the tutorial videos below. Click tutorial title to view.

Action Area Tool

The Action Areas Tool can group students according to need, efficiently addressing unfinished learning. The tool uses the embedded formative assessments from the students’ personalized learning pathway to supply actionable insight for teachers and administrators. The Action Areas Tool identifies students in need of additional support, groups them by skill, and provides links to online and offline Imagine Learning activities and printable resources for use in intervention sessions.

Portfolio

The Portfolio provides a collection of student learning artifacts. Both audio recordings and constructed writing responses can be reviewed online or downloaded to share with students and parents.
