As a homeschooler, I am always looking for novel ways to scaffold my child’s learning, given his special needs. I stumbled on Educolearning Math online curriculum and decided to check out if it fit our learning needs. Keep reading to find out more.
What is Educolearning?
ELC is flagship educational technology product from Educo International Inc. Educolearning is geared towards learning resources for Kindergarten(K1) to College level education.
What does it include?
The online topics are aligned to Common Core objectives and a printed workbook shipped to you.
- Practice mode (instant feedback) and
- Test mode (Feedback after submission).
Let’s talk about – Who can use this?
What do reports look like?
Badges are awarded on the successful completion of every Chapter Test in a Course. Educators receive real-time graphical and tabular information about their students’ grades, progress, and learning activities, allowing them to take proactive actions.
What could be better?
The online worksheets are not editable so you may have to consider print version only, which seems restrictive. The lack of auditory input through out the program did not appeal to our learning style . This totally misses the auditory learners(my son is one) as visual input alone is not sufficient for instruction in our case. I would also reckon that this may not be a good fit for children with differential needs as the topics are not scaffolded in any way.
How did we use it ?
My neurotypical son enjoyed completing the print workbook they sent along. We did go through several topics as his practice work.
Math education should do more than just aid you in class; it should also prepare our children for life outside of the classroom. If you need a supplemental curriculum and not go through the hassle of planning for worksheets you may lean into EducoMath. This curriculum could benefit from personalized teaching in addition to online practice and workbook work. You can find out what other homeschooling crew families have to say about this.
