New school year, new features!
Just in time for the start of the new school year, Find Your Grind now offers educators an incredible implementation experience powered by new bite-sized badges created specifically to support them, along with videos to help get them oriented to the curriculum and units before they jump in!
Starting out the new school year can be chaotic, and the last thing that teachers have time to do is become a domain expert on a subject that they may be teaching for the very first time. Our Director of Learning (and lifelong educator), Liz, has created short videos, introducing teachers to the unit and giving them clear guidelines on how they can be successful with their students. These videos are just right for a high level overview of how to approach the content with students, but we didn’t stop there.
Teachers can dive deeper into specific topics related to the unit with our new educator badges – designed and available exclusively to teachers (that’s right, students won’t see this content). Now, before introducing a new unit to the class, teachers can pick and choose what topics they want to brush up on, and internalize the content immediately. Tired of exit tickets? Explore alternatives easily, by clicking on our Beyond the Exit Ticket badge. Not sure what a “misfit” is? Become a pro in minutes by choosing the Misfit Defined badge.
Increased Student Engagement
We’ve also provided support to teachers in the form of more interactive and engaging content for students. Students will be able to share their thoughts and reflections by answering question prompts within badges. Learning outcomes increase when intentionality and consideration are brought to the learning experience, and that’s exactly what students will be able to experience with this new feature.
By truly engaging with the content, students will internalize the topics deeper – leading to richer classroom discussions and better outcomes. This has been one of our most requested features, by teachers and students alike, and we are so excited to see how this will ignite learning in classrooms across the country!
