Instructional Framework

At eDynamic Learning, all of our courses are developed in-house by teachers and subject matter experts offering one consistent and simplistic design and interface. This allows you and your students to focus on what’s most important: teaching and learning. Each course is designed and written with engaging curriculum narratives that employs backwards design methodology to support best practices on how today’s students learn. Each lesson is chucked into bite-sized pieces of text with the integration of visuals to keep students engaged. You can also customize course units and lessons allowing you to personalize your instruction.

Interactive Resources
To increase engagement and decrease passive learning, interactive resources offer opportunities for students to engage with the content and can include diagrams, videos, slideshows, and other interactive elements.

Unit Labs

Labs are practical engagement and exploratory activities for students to bring in real-world context and enable them to demonstrate their learning through extended and strategic thinking. The principals of Bloom’s Taxonomy are applied to labs and activities as students can “evaluate, create, and analyze,” and more. Labs may offer students further exploration of career options and the needed soft skills for the career field.
