Capit is an app that guides teachers and students through animated lessons on letters, sounds, and basic words. It provides teachers and students with a library of guided lessons, e-books, and mnemonic songs for review and memorization of introductory language arts concepts. Student progress through assigned lessons are reported back to teachers for assessment. Capit is available for purchase.
Teachers begin using Capit by signing up and logging in to their teacher portal. From their teacher portal, they then enter in information for each of their students. Once completed, they begin using Capit’s teacher-guided lessons from the lesson menu. Capit can be used by a teacher to facilitate teaching the entire class at once, or by students to complete lessons individually. The teacher-guided lessons walk teachers and students through a series of animations that introduce letters, sounds, and basic words. Teachers use the interface to change the colors of letters, press the ‘speaker’ button to have the sounds of letters and words pronounced, and drag and drop individual letters to create words. To progress through the lesson, teachers click on the ‘check’ icon in the bottom right of the screen. Teachers can have students review by playing mnemonic device songs or do class read alouds by going through one of Capit’s Zippi books.
Students use Capit by opening the app at their desks and completing the self-guided lessons or reading Zippi books. Progress through the lesson is monitored and sent back to the teacher’s portal for assessment. While students are completing self guided lessons, teachers can walk around and assess students as well. All Capit curriculum teacher guided lessons and student self-guided lessons are organized the same way.
Teachers can purchase coinciding mnemonic toys for student use as well.
Inquiries about pricing can be made on Capit’s website.
