INFOhio’s two steps to stepping up student learning. What’s it all about?
Student learning – it’s at the center of every tool, resource, database, professional development, piece of content and software that INFOhio offers. INFOhio’s mission is to make quality digital content available to all teachers, students and parents in Ohio. To achieve this goal, INFOhio has developed a two-step system to help educators improve student learning using high-quality instructional materials.
The two-step process? It’s easier than 1, 2, 3!
Step one: Go to Educator Tools to find instructional strategies, research, lesson plans, best practices and media. You can search for topics such as “financial literacy” or “reading informational text” in the search box. Here’s where you will find tips, tricks and trade secrets to improve student learning in your classroom. Educator Tools, powered by INFOhio, now includes more than 55,000 teacher-approved lesson plans, best practices and other instructional materials, curated by Knovation, to support personalized learning, project-based learning and the inquiry process.
Step two: Use ISearch from INFOhio’s homepage to find digital texts, videos, images and more that you can print or upload to your learning management system for student use. Comprised solely of curated and credible sources, you are upping your research game tenfold in just two clicks. When you search with ISearch, results will come from nearly all of INFOhio’s content providers — World Book, EBSCO, Scholastic and more. It also returns results from your school library and the Digital Video Collection, providing you with a variety of content in a variety of media formats to challenge and engage students.
