Students will access Penda’s fun and competitive gaming platform to practice science and math concepts as well as curb summer learning losses in science and math. Miami Dade is the fourth largest district in the nation and is known for innovative, cutting edge approaches to delivering curriculum. Penda has successfully worked with some of the district’s ETO schools (Education Transformation Office) and their engaging instructional content will now be accessible to students across the district throughout the summer. Nidia Ashby, assistant principal at one of the ETO schools reported, “The level of student engagement with Penda was at an all-time high. I’ve never seen so many kids addicted to an educational program.” She continued, “Students requested to stay after school or spend their lunch time doing Penda lessons. It was truly awesome.” Educators understand that even the best instructional programs can’t work if students don’t use them. With Penda, students are eager to access the gaming platform where they compete with their friends as they travel around the world. In addition, Penda is correlated to the district’s scope and sequence so the weekly reports show student mastery of what is being taught to help teachers drive instruction. “We are excited to partner with Miami Dade for their summer school program,” says Penda CEO Jacob Makuvire. “Students will focus on specific standards to reinforce core curriculum for science and math, and kids just love the competition and gaming platform.” For more information, email astubbs@pendalearning.com or call 800-481-8101.
