Milpitas, CA – September 1, 2014 – ScootPad, a leading adaptive learning platform for grades K-8, today announced Scootorials, the new Common Core audio-visual tutorials for grades K-8. Available 24/7, Scootorials are designed to reteach each standard at a concept level, in a step-by-step format. Students can access Scootorials from their dashboard, assignments, and learning paths with a simple click.
Frequently, students need help recollecting or comprehending concepts taught in the classroom, but find themselves stranded with no help available. Welcome to Scootorial, a virtual instructor with unlimited patience, providing students with just-in-time instruction for the specific concept they need help with. Scootorials are concise, step-by-step, easy to understand audio explanations with rich visual illustrations, allowing students to grasp concepts right away. Scootorials are interactive, enabling students to engage with the ability to replay, skip, or pause at each step, until they fully understand the concept in depth.
Dr. Benjamin S. Bloom, Professor of Education, suggested, “Schools cannot provide tutoring for every student but the use of mastery learning in combination with other practical methods could enable students to learn almost as well.” Scootorials on ScootPad provide the one-on-one guidance, both in and out of the classroom, to ensure every student has access to the necessary instruction. ScootPad’s prescriptive engine determines what each student needs to learn and provides recommended Scootorials right at their fingertips.
“When students have their ‘I’m stuck’ moments, Scootorials are there to help, at any time and any place,” said ScootPad Co-Founder, Bharat Kumar. “Scootorials allow teachers to extend their reach beyond the classroom to meet every student’s specific needs.”
