Neeru Khosla will share how interactive, personalized digital learning tools are helping to bridge the achievement gap in inner-city schools.


Free digital textbook provider CK-12 Foundation and Leadership Public Schools (LPS), a network of charter high schools in California?s Bay Area, collaborated to create customized College Access Readers featuring embedded literacy supports to help bridge the academic gap for an urban student population whose majority enter 9th grade reading between 2nd and 6th grade levels with math skills at the same level.  LPS Richmond is using the Algebra College Access Reader and FlexMath, an online Algebra support and numeracy remediation approach developed by LPS in conjunction with CK-12.  Richmond has also integrated immediate-response data with clickers. Recent semester exams showed 92% at or above grade level, triple their performance last year and four times that of neighboring schools, a turnaround the result of a rapid-cycle development process made possible by technology.
