1. It locates each student based on school data, precisely determining which knowledge and skills they have already attained and which they have yet to learn.
2. It curates resources within a content library to be able to select exactly the right lesson or activity for each student in each moment.
3. It enables teachers to facilitate personalized learning by monitoring each student’s progress as they learn and continuously suggesting additional activities to support them where they need help the most.
4. It mediates a student’s learning in particular subjects by creating an individualized pathway just for them and by continuously presenting them with reroute suggestions based on their performance.
Utilizing this GPS for Learning technology, we have worked with educators and schools to co-create Math curriculum to develop Navigator for Math program. This ensures that every student can gain confidence and accelerate their learning in math.
Navigator for Math is a course of study covering all math concepts from grades 2-8. Students are presented with a route based on their profile and continuously made reroute suggestions based on their performance to provide an individualized pathway designed to build on their current knowledge, as well as fill gaps in their understanding. Through this comprehensive and personalized learning experience, every student can become fully prepared for more advanced math.
Over the past three years, high school students using an earlier version of content called Navigate Math have gained an average of 2.8 math grade levels per year, as measured by the NWEA MAP. (Christensen Report)
"Gooru lets us pull together a variety of resources and track student progress all in one place. I especially like the ability to see student time on task and that students can easily access resources for review of concepts independently."
--Laurie Ellis, Math Teacher at Leadership Public Schools, CA
"Gooru's platform allows our teachers to connect with students in more meaningful ways because it allows teachers to use their ingenuity and judgement to meet students' needs in an incredibly efficient manner.”
--Mackey Pendergrast, Superintendent at Morris School District, NJ
Teachers can use the Learning Navigator in other subjects too. Teachers can search for individual resources in subjects in addition to Math, including English Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, and more. They can design their own lessons or adapt ones created by other educators.
