Browser add-on that tracks and highlights words in any online text and incorporates them into vocab quizzes

Overview

SUMMARY:

Propagate improves students’ vocabularies by highlighting and defining difficult words in any digital text from an article to a textbook through a free browser add-on, and then quizzing students on those same words later. Since Propagate launched in March, 2014, it has been used by around 1,000 students and teachers in over 10 schools.

GOALS:

Propagate improves students’ vocabularies by highlighting and defining difficult words in any digital text from an article to a textbook and quizzing students on those same words later. The product was developed to reinforce vocabulary words through conceptual connections which has been shown to significantly improve reading comprehension and vocabulary retention.

APPROACH:

After students have taken a baseline assessment to determine their reading level and vocabulary strengths and weaknesses, Propagate will highlight potentially challenging words in articles, blog posts and digital texts. These words may be aligned to the Common Core State Standards, appear often in standardized tests, or been marked by students for later review. Students will then see those same words as they appeared in sentences students may have already seen, as well as in vocab quizzes and games meant to test comprehension. Teachers are able to keep track of student progress, and the app will actual adapt as students improve, providing more challenging words.

IMPLEMENTATION:

Propagate works as an add-on that students install in their web-browser.

PRICING:

Propagate is free for teachers and students to use.

WHO IS USING IT:

Since Propagate launched in March, 2014, it has been used by around 1,000 students and teachers in over 10 schools.
