Develops custom playlists of eBooks, games, videos and learning materials for the iPad

Overview

eSpark aids both teachers and students by sorting through all educational iPad apps, videos, quizzes, and activities to provide students with individualized curriculum plans that meets their specific learning needs. Students are evaluated, set goals, and pace themselves through a series of carefully selected quests and lessons on a variety of iPad platforms.

APPROACH

Student users begin using eSpark by creating an account and answering academic content questions. eSpark then determines the student’s learning level based off of these answers and pre-existing standardized test data.

Students, along with their teacher, then select specific learning goals. Once these personalized goals have been set, eSpark creates a specialized learning plan for that student, aligned with Common Core standards. This learning plan includes weekly quests oriented around eSpark approved apps, videos, online quizzes, activities, ebooks, and audiobooks.

Once a student has completed a quest, they record a video explaining and reteaching themselves what they have just learned. This video is automatically uploaded to the teacher’s dashboard, where they can see it and monitor student progress.

eSpark also provides personalized professional development for teachers.

PRICING

The price of each eSpark subscription varies based on the number of teachers and students using the product, as well as the price of the apps curated in each student’s individual learning plan. Inquiries about subscriptions and pricing options can be made on the eSpark website.

WHO’S USING IT

As of March 2016, eSpark serves over 60,000 students.
