Company receives international awards for its innovation in digital learning
Triumph Learning, producer of critically acclaimed K-12 instructional materials and interactive digital tools, received two Global Learn Tech awards presented by the World Education Congress, for its advancement in the digital learning space with Waggle, Personalized Smart Practice. The company took home the top prize for its learning software and curriculum in the following categories: Award for Excellence in Online Learning Platform and Outstanding Blended Learning Course.
“More than ever, educators need materials for an increasingly diverse group of students,” said Mike Morley, publisher at Triumph Learning. “Support Coach provides an efficient, strategic and cohesive set of tools to support educators committed to providing all children with the opportunity to achieve their goals in math and ELA.”
Maureen McSparran Ruby, English language arts specialist for the Norwalk Public Schools in Connecticut and professor for the University of Connecticut’s Teacher Certification Program for College Graduates, compiled a review of Common Core Support Coach ELA. Ruby’s report confirms the curriculum provides an efficient, strategic and cohesive set of instructional tools designed to meet distinct challenges for at-risk readers. Using the gradual release of responsibility (GRR) model, an instructional framework designed to gradually transfer the responsibility of learning from teachers to students, Support Coach for ELA encourages meaningful instruction and practice through recurring opportunities for “close reading” of complex texts.
Dr. Paul Gray, curriculum developer and member of the Texas Council of Teachers of Mathematics, provides a thorough review of Common Core Support Coach for Foundational Mathematics. The evaluation concludes that math programs designed within a framework of the GRR model, such as Support Coach for Math, incorporate instructional strategies that are known to be successful with non-traditional and at-risk learners.
More information about the Common Core Support Coach findings is available in new white papers for Common Core Support Coach for Math, “Instructional Supports in Mathematics for an Age of Rigorous Standards,” and Common Core Support Coach ELA, “Providing Instruction and Practice Opportunities for Close Reading of Complex Text.”
