Colorado Charter Schools Has New Approach To Teaching And Learning.

The Chalkbeat Colorado (9/14, Schimke) reports students at charter school Roots Elementary in northeast Denver follow a personalized schedule for learning by moving between work stations every 15 minutes following directions on their iPads. Principal Jon Hanover said, “It’s literally the first time something like this is happening with elementary school.” The students check their iPads to learn what station they need to go to, and then follow colored-tape lines around the school to get there. Hanover says a personalized approach to learning is needed to help the many poor students attending the school meet standards. At Roots, 80% of the students qualify for free or reduced-price lunches and less than 50% of students at neighboring schools pass the third-grade reading proficiency.
