This summer, Fuel Education (FuelEd) is incorporating upgrades to Stride™, its supplemental learning solution for PreK–8 standards-aligned skills practice. FuelEd has developed and is adding more direct instructional activities, new targeted skill review activities, and more game options.
Stride includes an adaptive question engine to personalize the student experience and rewards students with “coins” they can redeem for gaming time as well as other digital rewards such as academic badges, avatars, and leaderboards.
In Stride, students begin practicing skills by answering questions and earning coins for gaming time. With the enhanced skill review activities, if a student is not answering the questions correctly, the student is offered a choice between several different activities to help them review or relearn the skill. Research shows that when students have a choice it can significantly improve motivation and academic performance.
Other Stride enhancements include:
· Improved progress dashboards
· More technology-enhanced items
· More fun, engaging games
· Fresh look and feel
