Large classrooms and varied learning capabilities of students have always made it hard for teachers to personalize instruction and track student learning. This shift of institutions to remote teaching due to COVID-19 has made the task even more challenging.
Remote teaching without the right set of tools can make it impossible for a teacher to identify and especially track each student’s learning curve & help them improve their learning.
When teachers are equipped correctly, they give their students the best possible education by identifying weak areas, tacking their leaning habits, and then guiding them by providing appropriate resources and learning processes. And when students see their own growth while having access to the correct content and tools, they can start on the self-learning journey too.
The teaching community has immense respect for tools that can help them deliver differential instruction. Freckle, an online learning platform by US-based Renaissance Learning is a popular differentiation platform trusted by over 700,000 teachers worldwide allowing teachers to teach all their students at the level that’s best for them.
Freckle has a suite of easy-to-use tools for teachers to help them understand and connect with every student at their level to facilitate growth, especially in Math and English Language Arts (ELA) amongst other subjects. Freckle also allows students to improve learning through practice and helps them grow subject-specific knowledge by enabling self-directed learning. Its robust tool-set also makes evaluation and tracking easier while providing the teachers with the means to give their students the most suitable content.

With tools like Freckle, teachers get automatically differentiated lessons allowing them to work on student growth. It empowers teachers to meet the needs of every student by offering inquiry-based lessons, adaptive practices, targeted assignments, benchmark assessments, reports, and a lot more.
