Introducing Rockalingua's Learning Management System. The key to a successful school year

¡Hola amigos!

As you may  already know we've spent all last year developing a Learning Management System (LMS) for Spanish class. Back in June we tested the LMS with a group of teachers and they LOVED it!  Teachers said that students were super engaged, working on the tasks they had assigned them, and that differentiated instruction was easily implemented with our LMS since teachers can assign tasks to a whole class or to specific students that might need easier or more chanllenging assignments. Check out this minute and a half video to learn everything about it!

After this group of teachers tested the system, we used their feedback to make changes to improve the system. One of the things we spent a lot of time on was optimazing the performance of the system to make sure schools with poor internet connection would not have any issues. Let us explain you how our Learning Management System for Spanish class will make your job much easier!

Save time. You will save many hours of prep time a week and it will help you make your teaching more effective. With Rockalingua's LMS you have all the resources to teach your Spanish class at your finger tips so you don't have to spend hours searching the web looking for resources. Once you've created your classes, you can customize the curriculum for each class by blocking and un-blocking the content that you want each class to access. This way, students focus on the topics you are working on in class and they don't get distracted with our constantly growing library of content. Our unique way of making repetition fun, by presenting the materials in many different ways (songs, videos, games, picture dictionaries and worksheets), will make students review and repeat the most important vocabulary and grammar structures in different contexts without them even realizing they are reviewing.

 

Differentiated instruction made easy.  With our LMS, you will be able to assign tasks to a whole class, a group of students or single students. This is one of the most important and challenging things teachers have to accomplish. Differentiated instruction in Spanish class is key since there is always a gap of knowledge between some students and others. Given the limited time for Spanish class, differentiated instruction is time consuming and requires teachers to spend hours of prep time after class, planning different activities for different students. We have solved that challenge and now, in just a couple of minutes, you can create different tasks for different students. And the best part is that you can keep track of students' work and progress!

 

Keep track of students' work and progress. When you assign tasks, our in depth analytics will allow you to see, at a glance, how the class is performing those tasks. You will be able to see right away which students are already working on the assignments and which students have not yet started. You will also be able to gauge what concepts each student, and also the class as a whole, is having trouble with. This is priceless information since you can see it right away, without having to correct 20 different papers, which concepts students are struggling with. 

 

Focused students. Teachers that tested the system shared with us that one of the more impressive aspect of LMS was that students were more focused while working on the tasks. Students can immediately see what assignments within the tasks they have already done and which ones they have yet to complete (see image below). Our interactive Learning Management System  gives students a sense of independence since they can work at their own pace and they can also see their % of right and wrong answers. They can also redo specific interactive games to improve their % of right answers!

Less papers to correct. We are constantly adding new interactive games that you can assign as tasks. Instead of correcting endless piles of papers, you can instantly see students interactive games' results. Based on the results you will know right away, without having to spend hours correcting papers, what concepts or grammar structures you should review with students.
