Active Learning

Learn by Doing

Instead of passively watching, listening, and reading, students using our digital curriculum learn by doing. Students are actively engaged in learning and motivated to complete their coursework. 




Active Learning vs Passive Learning

Proven Pedagogy

Apex Learning digital curriculum is based on time-tested pedagogical principles:

  • Create an anticipatory set for the student
  • Provide focused instruction using teaching strategies such as guided-inquiry and direct instruction
  • Engage student in practice and application exercises to clarify and deepen conceptual understanding and mastery of skills
  • Assess student progress throughout the instruction with formative assessments that provide feedback to both student and teacher
  • Remediate where necessary
  • Provide summative assessment with both objective (computer-scored) and open-ended (teacher-scored) instruments at the end of each unit and semester

Support for All Students

Scaffolding delivers instruction in manageable chunks that gradually build knowledge, while supports and interactive tools provide opt-in support at the time of need.
