Customizable, standards-based eToolkit to accelerate learning
Differentiate and personalize instruction to accelerate learning anytime, anywhere with the EmpowerED Learner eToolkit.
“A lot of the parents of my students work a ton, so a lot of (the students) are home with brothers, sisters, babysitters…that could look at the exemplar and go, “Oh! You’re supposed to do this.”
Also, I knew what my students were learning. I didn’t have to guess. Because it is integrated with PearDeck, I can get that instant feedback. Having a teacher instead of just a computer really made their computers a lot more dynamic.”

“It was by far the best thing we’ve ever done. It saved us…
We have these units all ready. They were interactive, we had stories that were read to the kids, we had tasks for the kids to do, we even had clarity built-in for parents. We got such feedback from parents saying, “Oh my goodness. I can do this! I can help my child!”

“Finally a supplemental tool with clarity and definitive purpose.
Strictly aligned to standards, the EmpowerED Learner Etoolkit represents the modeling and formative assessment piece teachers previously spent hours self-creating and revising. As we work to infuse the Assessment for Learning framework into curriculum and instruction, this tool is what we all need to provide clarity and promote student ownership as our children navigate the progression. Simple to use for students and educators alike, and equally useful for distance and in-person learning, I am forever grateful for the creation of this resource.

Differentiation and personalization is challenging with large groups of learners at varying levels. Often, families and learners are the victims of deficit thinking and are blamed and shamed when students aren’t on grade level. More and more, traditional teaching methods interfere with expanding student agency, motivation, and ownership. But customizing curriculum and making it relevant is challenging with most big box curriculum resources.
Solving Problems of Practice Pain Points
It’s challenging to reach, teach, and personalize learning for every student.

A note from the EmpowerED Learner eToolkit lead designer
Our current educational landscape calls for equity-driven learning experiences to ensure that our teachers use evidence-based practices that accelerate learning. When these practices are implemented with quality, students make learning leaps, learn from mistakes, persist through challenge, become more self-aware, problem-solve, and become a resource for each other in class.
The communities we serve deserve an innovative approach to learning as we build back wiser. We must trust and inspire our students to take ownership of their learning so they can reach any goal they want to pursue.
