Exploros Social Studies OER - 5E Model Design
Exploros fulfills a longstanding promise of technology. It gives educators new insights into classroom activity to improve student outcomes—continually measuring student engagement, progress, and assessment against learning objectives.
Teachers teach classroom lessons, but all students engage and learning data is collected automatically. Teachers get a live window into some of this information so they can adapt lessons to student needs in real time.
Teachers and administrators can observe progress against learning goals over time, whether districts are using self-published curriculum, Exploros OER curriculum, or an educational publishing partner's curriculum.
Views of curriculum coverage by class, usage and engagement, collaboration, and assessment results.
