Over the past few years, instructional teams, education experts, and classroom teachers at Santa Ana Unified School District have spent thousands of hours developing a comprehensive K-12 Common Core-aligned curriculum that goes beyond standard instruction to include Spanish and Special Education units to support their diverse student population.
With the Learning Navigator, SAUSD created an open, digital library for teachers to access, collaborate and remix units. In addition to a comprehensive set of teacher- and student-facing units, performance tasks, and lessons, the SAUSD team shared Professional Learning modules that give teachers 24/7 access to modules covering immediately relevant topics for Common Core instruction. 3,200 learning collections and assessments cover K-12 Core Subjects with ELL and Special Education support aligned to CCSS and NGSS, Parent Education, and Professional Learning.
In 2011, Mike Fauteux was a veteran math teacher at Leadership Public Schools (LPS) Hayward, a high school where 80% of students enter with math skills below grade level. To backfill these missing 2nd-7th grade pre-algebra skills, he designed a companion class to Algebra 1 called Academic Numeracy. The result was a powerful combination of direct instruction, self-paced resources, real-time assessments, and features to build growth mindset and collaboration. Students’ understanding and excitement for learning soared. They took meaningful ownership of their learning and moved from elementary proficiency into college readiness by graduation.
Students who started Navigate Math below grade level gained an average of 2.8 grade levels of math per year with this approach, as measured by the NWEA MAP. Several teachers across four LPS schools began using the math approach with the same successful results, whether they were veteran or new teachers.
US foundations spent more than $67 billion on education programs in 2017. Funders license Mission Control for a single data dashboard that gives them immediate information to compare programs, resources, and outcomes of their philanthropic spends. Revenues from annual license fees for Mission Control help sustain Gooru's mission.
Additional billions are spent annually on education technology, and this investment is expected to increase worldwide. Navigator is an intelligent, cost-effective solution for tech partners to license and integrate into their apps. Tech Partners pay a one-time implementation cost and annual license fees of US $1/user/year.
Members of the NLC are self-funding the co-creation of Navigator. This collaboration continually refines and develops the capability and user experience of Navigator for all stakeholders.
