Learn the Ropes' for Reading and Teach Literacy with Success

Research over a number of years has indicated that a almost any child can learn to read, yet only one third are proficient, according to NAEP. Teachers across the country are fighting a losing battle in teaching literacy without the proper training and resources—the truth is teachers are working hard but need literacy-specific tools and training to impact student outcomes and change this statistic.
This helpful presentation, which uses information from Scarborough's Reading Rope, will help literacy educators "learn the Rope" to teach reading. Educator Carolyn Gore of Caddo Public Schools and Toni Backstrom of Voyager Sopris Learning will discuss blended learning approaches, online resources, and other tools designed to make teachers more effective and efficient in the way they teach reading. The presenters will explore the various strands of the 'Rope' and will demystify common misunderstandings while sharing best practices. Join us and see how you can help every student become a proficient reader!

Reward Students for More Than Correctness—How Technology Can Help Learners Take On Growth Mindset

Growth mindset suggests that if students are taught that intelligence is malleable—instead of fixed at birth—they will tackle harder problems, persist longer when facing difficult tasks, and, ultimately, learn more. Unfortunately, most educational technology hasn’t caught up with this research. Join us to discuss how technology can help students take on growth mindset and how you can teach students cognitive skills that will serve them in their lifelong journey of learning.

Velocity Research Foundation

This report elaborates on how Velocity works. Since Velocity is so different, we start with a machine learning primer and a brief review of the Enlearn Learning Platform that powers the machine learning in Velocity. Next, the ELA content will be discussed since it was developed to support Velocity, not repurposed from a previous program.
