Actively Learn is the only reading solution
designed for middle and high school students
teachers are essential and highly involved in our solution
For students to acquire the content knowledge to succeed, they need effective teachers. Nevertheless, while other solutions talk about “empowering“ teachers, they just provide them software that interacts with students while keeping teachers on the sideline to access data reports. We believe empowerment requires including teachers in the most important aspects of school: instruction and feedback. We make teacher practices both easier and more effective by bringing a one-on-one dynamic to an entire classroom.
supports BEST PRACTICES for TEACHING AND LEARNING
The most effective practices in developing student reading are scaffolding texts, asking questions, and encouraging collaboration. We have researched all aspects of student reading, from the ideal reading experience for dyslexic students to the habits that distinguish deep reading (hint: highlighting is not very effective). What you get in Actively Learn is a distilled set of features that overcome the limitations of paper to scale best practices.
close reading and critical thinking across every subject
Reading is critical for any subject. We help students think more, write more, and collaborate when they read. By doing these three things, students learn more in every area.Our Catalog offers core content across all subjects and enables teachers to import their own content as well.
Schools and districts use Actively Learn across their curriculum
Improve reading and solve other key problems
Need to get more from your investment in devices & technology?
We work with many schools and districts who have gone 1:1 but find they're not taking advantage of their devices or providing too many resources that teachers are struggling to juggle. Our comprehensive platform addresses reading across subjects and adapts to various teaching goals, so you can make sure those Chromebooks and tablets are making an impact.
Tired of over-testing to prepare for the benchmark exams?
Many of our partners share that they want students to spend the time between testing doing meaningful work, not just practicing for the test. Actively Learn promotes deep reading to help students acquire knowledge and build skills across subjects, which reflects in improved test scores.
Spending too much on textbooks and digital tools?
Instead of throwing money away on expensive textbooks that often go unused, you can transition to high quality, free textbooks using Actively Learn. Our vast library of supplemental materials make it even cheaper to get all the content you need.
Other reading solutions are expensive and don't give you the flexibility to do what's best for your students. Actively Learn is suitable for use in any instructional context and is affordable.
