Children like to have fun. Tap that energy and great things happen. That's why BASCOM's Development Team updated the screen students see when they login into a lesson. As a result of this redesign, students are immediately transformed into active learners. By improving the initial online experience, a student's attention is instantly focused, productivity soars, and educational outcomes improve.
"BASCOM is always looking for new ways to fine-tune the Global Chalkboard to help children enjoy the educational process," states Peter Cirasole, BASCOM's President/CEO. "The redesign of the Lesson Login screen is just one example of how the Global Chalkboard, an online curriculum tool, stimulates students to actively learn using Web sites in their curriculum."
