There can be a bit of culture shock for students, parents, and instructors with the shift to cyberlearning, but it also carries many benefits. For example, students can take more responsibility for their courses and start to develop the self-discipline that others won't until college. Likewise, teachers can get real-time feedback on learner performance without waiting for the test at the end of the chapter. Online learning platforms for K-12 should flatten the learning curve as much as possible to help everyone benefit from remote learning.
At Turning, we've leveraged our educational expertise to create Dojo360: a learning engagement platform built for everyone, everywhere. Like other K-12 online learning platforms, many of our platform's features are designed to be reminiscent of a traditional classroom. Unlike most of our competitors, though, our platform is also built to bring online and hybrid learning to the next level. Please continue reading for more information.
All K-12 students deserve a great educational experience, so K-12 online learning platforms have to offer standardized access to content. Likewise, great platforms need empirical measures of engagement and learner outcomes. Finally, you have to remember that teacher support is just as important as helping students. Here are four specific Dojo360 features that turn these goals into reality:
Students in traditional environments often take notes from a whiteboard while their teacher explains a concept. Dojo360 has a virtual whiteboard and video chat capabilities that facilitate the same thing. Likewise, K-12 teachers often split their classes into teams to play games or facilitate group work. Dojo360 has virtual meeting spaces that allow the same thing to happen remotely.
That said, our platform offers several advantages that traditional classrooms cannot. For instance, all class meetings are recorded, allowing students to access them on-demand whenever they want a refresher. Students can also choose when and where to access educational content, promoting engagement and information retention.
We encourage you to explore Dojo360's features in further detail or look at the e3 philosophy that inspired them. Once you do your research, we're confident that you will agree that it's among the best online platforms for K-12 students.
