Better Exercise Introductions, Faster Program Progression, Smarter Student Interventions
SmartLearning Technology is the back-end engine that powers the New Fast ForWord. With this intelligent system, the New Fast ForWord now knows when a student is struggling and provides real-time instruction as soon as a student needs it. Our new back-end technology is also continuously improving, allowing us to provide an even greater experience for you and your students in ongoing releases.
How Does SmartLearning Technology Improve the Fast ForWord Intervention Program?
- More engaging, more adaptive, and more motivating: students move more quickly through content they have mastered so they can focus on the skills they need most.
- Built-in interventions and help: the program now automatically helps students work through the most challenging exercises, freeing up teachers and coaches to do what they do best: teach.
- New reports and lesson plans: you’ll be able to pinpoint specific strengths/weaknesses in English language arts, and use new lesson plans that align to classroom instruction!
- Now addresses 5 domains of reading: now with Reading Assistant included in all k-12 subscriptions, Fast ForWord’s 3-step approach covers all domains of reading (phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension).
