Learning Bird Announces Update to Learning Platform

Posted Nov 17, 2015

Learning Bird has announced a significant update to its learning platform. The latest release is designed to further empower teachers in offering differentiated instruction in their classroom by allowing them to easily assign specific lessons to individual students or groups of students. Teachers can upload their class lists into the platform and can then selectively assign individual lessons or playlists of lessons for students to complete. Teachers can even set due dates for lesson assignments and can check back any time to see which students have completed the assignments and whether they found the assignment helpful or not.

With a combination of digital content, adaptive algorithms, and teaching support tools, Learning Bird makes it easier for all teachers to differentiate their instruction so every child performs better, the announcement states. Learning Bird includes digital lessons from a variety of approaches to help students find their path to better learning and to support teachers in helping them achieve this.

In this update, there have also been significant enhancements made to the lesson viewer, allowing students to clearly see a different approach, and to see related lessons. This helps students in overcoming learning obstacles and achieving better outcomes as they can experience a lesson explained by a different teacher or delivered in a different way. Learning Bird lessons are presented as stories, presentations, songs, animations, role play, text and more, ensuring every student can find the right explanation to help him/her understand.

Another important update is the addition of reporting at the class, teachers, school, and district level. This allows administrators to clearly be able to see how students are performing from an individual, class and school/district perspective, and provides educators and administrators with the opportunity to link data to student progress.
