After months of fundraising, planning and preparation, the Ed-Tech Project launched at New American Scholars’ Reading & Writing Program on March 6, 2023 at the SNHU Center for New Americans.
The Ed-Tech program uses a tech-based teaching platform that personalizes instruction for each student using an adaptive learning model. We are excited to harness technology to “adapt” educational content to refugee learners who are often over-placed or under-placed in school and encounter a host of other challenges, including learning a new language. Adaptive learning technology enable our tutors to work one-on-one with refugee students to personalize instruction, analyze performance in real-time and adapt the learning plan to the student’s style, pace and preferences. Subjects will include Math, Reading, Writing, English Fluency and Comprehension and will comprise of interactive activities, learning games and materials required for all learning tasks. We will be able to measure our impact and provide progress reports and assessments to the students’ parents, teachers and schools.
