Learning is hard.
Let's work on it, together.
We are a reading tool that enables teachers to guide, monitor and improve student learning. You will get every student reading
closely, and sometimes you will transform their lives ...
12th Grader, Loudoun County High School
School is boring. I am sure that you are aware that we students feel this way.
Most days we dread going, live for weekends, and pray for snow in April.
But, Mr. Grzeda's class is not boring. I have discussed this with my fellow students and we all feel very similarly;
Mr. G's class is shockingly stimulating. In his class we are treated as if we have knowledge so we participate as if we have knowledge.
His method of teaching (using Actively Learn and flipping the classroom) has enabled us to learn new material with passion
Actively Learn is an open door into dicussion, interaction and debate. Every student is forced to interact because we have to
answer questions, but they are typed so we can do it while we discuss the material. Getting out-loud feedback from our peers
changes and shapes our own opinions as we answer the questions. The ability to simultaneously discuss information brings the material
to life before our eyes. We contribute and feed off of each other's ideas, and suddenly, there is LIFE back into learning!
This is not just an option for the AP classes. Coming from the special education system myself, I know that my IEP peers would thrive
with this program. Suddenly those of us with dyslexia and dysgraphia and ADD can feed off of information without our disabilities
getting in the way. Actively Learn allows verbal, written, and visual learning to occur simultaneously. Doing a worksheet, turning
it in and then later getting feedback is deadening. The purpose of a worksheet in our minds is to get a grade. The teacher is looking
for an answer, we mechanically write it down, and that is the end. For students, the technology is simple to learn. We are surrounded by
the kind of technology that Actively Learn uses 24 hours a day.
As a student who struggles, I cannot express how incredible this program has been for me. It has opened my eyes and
shown me that there is a way to learn besides drooling over a worksheet for a grade. There is a way to learn at our fingertips
that is invigorating, motivating, and exciting. My only question is - Why can I only learn this way in Mr. Grzeda's class?
... or if you're ready to get started, it's free ...
