Focus on Pedagogy
itslearning provides tools to support a variety of teaching strategies, including: backward design, Universal Design for Learning, project-based learning, flipped learning and blended learning. The platform also supports assessment for learning, standards-based learning and competency-based learning.
itslearning gives teachers easy ways to update students, including posting bulletins, sending messages to groups or individuals, and providing students with a task list in order of due date. Teachers can use the planner to communicate expectations and learning objectives, provide content in multiple media formats, and schedule events using the course’s calendar.
With the planner, teachers can align units, lessons, resources and assessments to standards; access shared resources in the Library; and customize fields to match curriculum strategies. The planner helps keep students organized with automatic updates, and may be linked to a smartphone calendar for easy accessibility. Teachers can plan while ensuring that lessons are
not visible to students, as well as share the planner on external websites.
With itslearning, teachers can align assessments to standards, create assignments with standards-aligned rubrics, and give students concrete, actionable feedback by standards via text, audio or video.
Teachers can also import questions using QTI standard format, or create tests with a
choice of 10 question types, including: true/false, multiple choice, multiple response, short answer, open answer, fill in the blank, select from a list, matching, sorting and hot spot/click the picture. Assessments can include audio, video and images, and teachers can allow re-takes, as well as track and assess offline work.
