The iDeaL Online Platform hosts a variety of iDeaL Professional Learning Webinars and Modules.
Each module includes carefully selected materials including videos and readings and a quiz at the end of each module to check your progress.
These modules may be completed individually, in teams and or as a whole staff.
The ability to determine your students’ capabilities and immediate teaching needs in both phonological awareness and alphabetic principle and fluency.
Stage 1, 2, 3 and 4 assessments are able to be administered to all students in years 1-8, and students who are struggling with reading and writing.
Individual, Group and Comparison Reporting
Student data can be entered into the iDeaL Online Platform and will save automatically. Reports for individuals, groups, classes, cohorts and across a whole school will be generated and show you where to begin teaching. Progress and comparison reports generated throughout the year are used to report to parents, school leaders and the Board of Trustees.
We provide a comprehensive suite of teaching resources including phonological awareness and alphabetic principle scope and sequences, lesson powerpoints and teaching material, instructional practice videos, 40 systematic concepts, roll and read activities for building fluency, vocabulary activities, and over 50 electronic decodable texts.
A core goal of the iDeaL Schools Platform is ensuring kaiako are fully supported with materials and resources so their time and energy can be focused on teaching.
Informative instructional videos, professional development modules and specific teaching resources are provided. These support a diagnostic, systematic, and cumulative approach to the delivery of Structured Literacy through direct instruction in both mainstream classes and intervention settings.
Importance is placed on supporting kaiako to learn effective lesson sequences that are delivered using the principles of explicit instruction.
The iDeaL Schools Platform also provides assessment tools, an automated ‘start teaching from’ tool and a progress-monitoring system.
NB: this tour was recorded via a live webinar in October 2023.
