TeacherMate helps kids learn to read in Miami Dade
An NPR-sponsored report gave a nice shout-out today to an Innovation for Learning project that’s teaching 600 South Florida children to read.
The students are using the digital TeacherMate program to learn how to read with help from volunteers.
According to the story from StateImpact, a project of local public radio stations and NPR:
The students are working with iPods purchased by the school district. They can access IFL’s learning app, which is used for small group instruction each day.
“Students are engaged in activities that improve their phonics, comprehension, vocabulary, and reading fluency skills,” says Sonya McSwain, Instructional Supervisor in the district’s Education Transformation Office.
