Review of Educeri

Educeri Lesson Subscription Service Reviews

I have often said that you could homeschool using only online resources, and Educeri...Educeri a division of DataWORKS' Educeri Lesson Subscription Service is a prime example (did you catch that the name is Educeri?!). Educeri has over 1,000 ready to teach lessons from K-12 in the subject areas of math, science, English/language arts, history, art, PE, music, Spanish, and English Language Development. You can search for lessons by subject area or by grade (K-8, Middle School - Science, High School, English Language Development). As of this writing, there are actually 1,102 lessons, and they are added at the rate of about three per week.

There are many different ways to use Educeri, so I'm going to show you how I used one lesson with the twins (11). Calculating a tip is an essential skill in today's world, but I get so irritated when I see how many people can't do it! It is frustrating to tell the girl at the front of the salon that I want to leave a 20% tip only to see her look frantically for the calculator. N.B., I'm not of the school that we don't need to teach our kids skills like this because they can just figure it out on their phones...

Anyway, Educeri has a great lesson on how to figure tips. It's categorized under 6th grade math. Perfect! Educeri's lessons are done as slides. Imagine Power Point presentations and you get the idea. Many also come with a pdf handout for students.

Notice that this slide tells you exactly what to say to your student to teach them about how to calculate a tip. 

Each of the succeeding slides pops in one more digit, so I didn't reproduce them all here, but you click through them Power Point style.

After percent of a quantity is established, the idea of a tip is introduced.

And guided practice is presented.

Again, each slide is clicked through, Power Point style, until each blank is filled in, but I didn't reproduce each slide here.

After the concept is introduced and explained, several slides of Independent Practice and Periodic Review are given. In the lower left corner of the slide, you can see a menu showing you the content of the lesson at a glance.

Some of my favorite resources, though, are the high school English ones. For example, the one on theme is great. Here are just a few of the slides (this one I had Therese - 15 - go through by herself):

Isn't it amazing how much can be taught without a "real teacher"? Even without a virtual one? For kids who don't like video lectures, but who do like independent learning, this is one program you really might want to consider. It's only $7.99/month.

Because parents with kids of all ages have been using Educeri for the last six weeks, definitely click on the banner below to see what their experiences have been. As for me, I feel like I have only begun to scratch the surface. I'm going to keep exploring it!
