A Navigator course provides a solution to accelerate knowledge and skill development and empower learners. Navigator courses bring together all of Navigator’s tools and support to create an innovative supplement to classroom instruction. Navigator courses can be used to fill gaps in understanding, review current concepts, and accelerate learners’ progress. No matter what grade learners are in or what their starting location is, Navigator generates an individualized pathway full of highly curated resources and personalized suggestions to help each learner reach their destination.
Gooru’s Navigator courses include Math, Soft Skills, Teacher Professional Development, Intro to xAPI, and College Readiness. These courses can be used as-is or collaborators can choose to white-label the technology.
The catalog of Navigator courses continues to expand, and we are currently building courses for a wide range of subjects including science and ELA.
Navigator empowers learners by helping them solidify foundational knowledge and skills and develop ownership of their learning. It allows for tailored implementation models based on learner and instructor readiness and slowly transitions learning from instructor- to learner-directed. It also enhances the role of the instructor with real-time data and research-based learning tools to successfully differentiate their teaching and coaching.
Gooru’s Navigator courses can be used by learners to fill knowledge gaps and to extend understanding, to ensure all learners reach their goals.
Instructors have access to real-time data on individual learners and tools to support efficient and effective individualized instruction.
Administrators track learning in the moment to personalize interventions and to see patterns of success and struggle across classrooms, schools, and districts.
Partners can brand Navigator course tools with their logo, roster the learners and instructors using OneRoster, access and launch Navigator from within their application using LTI.
Gooru’s Math Navigator supplements teacher instruction to help learners develop the foundational knowledge, skills, and thought processes they need to be successful in 2nd to 9th-grade math and better prepare for more advanced mathematics and STEM careers. Learners move from 2nd grade to high school math with a full spectrum of Common Core aligned resources and assessments.Each competency has a wide range of learning activities, resources and assessments, which includes digital and offline resources, machine-graded formative assessments, free response questions, worked solutions, and offline rubric-graded projects.
Gooru is invested in making sure that teaching practices guide technology, and that learner outcomes are at the heart of Navigator’s design. Gooru’s approach aligns with instructor needs and practices, putting instruction first and technology second.
“I feel like I have grown as a teacher in my ability to differentiate instruction and use data in a way that really powerfully benefits my students.” ‐‐ Laurie Ellis, math teacher at Leadership Public Schools.
