With a fresh approach to teaching necessary skills, Learn America is the creation of a group of educators who believe that the United States can mentor and produce an even larger number of great scientists, technology experts, engineers, and mathematicians.
With this in mind, educators from Scarsdale High School, one of the country’s leading school districts, and SUNY Purchase, a major New York State research institution and academic partner with expertise in science and math, joined with experts in the field of educational technology to design a user-friendly, comprehensive resource for students and teachers. The Learn America courses cover high school and college level mathematics and science materials and provide continuity in format, adaptable tools, and programs to reach students at all levels, thus creating a pipeline of students, who are interested in science and math and are prepared for a STEM-related career opportunity.
Learn America’s team recognized the dilemma of technology replacing textbooks and the need for subject-specific STEM resources. This led to the creation of a unique program that provides rich course content and assessments in mathematics and the sciences and blends technology with the traditional classroom setting. Students and teachers can easily navigate content materials and customize them for individual pacing and learning modalities. Each course includes animated video demonstrations, as well as formative and summative assessments offering analytic feedback for diagnostic progress and student success. Additionally, teachers can track students’ progress and time-on-task, thus making students more responsible and accountable for their work outside the classroom. The content of these courses is aligned with College Board Standards and when appropriate, can be taken for College credit.
