Struggling to accommodate Personalized Learning in Computer Science courses?
Teaching Comp Sci is not easy. And embracing personalize learning for each and every student can be a challenge.
We feel your pain. At GiiLD we look to engage the learner in ways that elevate problem solving skills through personalized learning.
Our approach is simple: ditch "courses" and offer Challenges instead. The GiiLD app offers cool Challenges that engage the students.
We are looking for progressive Teachers interested in being a part of a pilot initiative for Middle School and High School Computer Science. No experience needed!
By replacing courses with custom Challenges, we are emphasizing a project-based approach.
By encouraging students to figure out the "next steps" we are encouraging a totally personalize learning model.
The GiiLD Groups allow teachers to monitor each student's personal journey through their Challenges.
"WE MIGHT HAVE TOLD SOMEBODY IN THE PAST, HERE'S YOUR TASK, HERE ARE THE EXACT STEPS YOU NEED TO TAKE TO ACCOMPLISH IT. (WE) SHOULDN'T DO THAT ANYMORE. (INSTEAD) HERE'S THE OUTCOME I WANT; YOU FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET THERE"
