THE STATE OF EDUCATION & TRAINING

The long-standing view has been that the first several years of elementary school should be devoted to basic reading skills. History, science, and the arts can wait.  After all, the argument goes, if kids haven’t learned to read—a task that is theoretically accomplished by third grade—how will they be able to gain knowledge about those subjects through their own reading?

The implication is clear. The best way to boost students’ reading comprehension is to expand their knowledge and vocabulary by teaching them history, science, literature, and the arts, using curricula that that guide kids through a logical sequence from one year to the next. 

This approach enables children to make sense of what they’re learning, and the repetition of concepts and vocabulary in different contexts makes it more likely they’ll retain information. Not to mention that learning content in this fashion can be a lot more engaging for both students and teachers than the endless practice of illusory skills.

A student that begins primary school today will graduate from university in the mid-2030s and their career will last through 2060 or beyond. We can’t predict what our workforce’s needs will be in in the middle of the century, but we know they are changing and will continue to change with the rate of technological advancement.

It’s time to prepare our children for what lies ahead and do it in a framework that is immersive, engaging, and in a way that ensures their success.  It starts now.  It starts with this solution.

THE PROBLEM

A project founded by the national survey of science and math education indicated that just nineteen minutes per day in the typical K-3 classroom are dedicated for science. Where 4-6 grades have forty-five minutes on average for both science and social studies combined.

The long-standing view has been that the first several years of elementary school should be devoted to basic reading skills. History, science, and the arts can wait.

By 2022, America Will Need 1 Million More College Grads With STEM Training Than We Are on Track to Produce!

Trump’s new budget eliminates:

$2.3 billion for funding that reduced class size and provided professional development for educators to help them better support and serve all students.

$1.2 billion for funding that provided before- and after-school programs, summer programs, and academic enrichment for students.

Despite efforts from No Child Left Behind to promote ‘highly qualified’ teaching, recent research shows that just 36 percent of new secondary science teachers are teaching only in their trained subject.

THE SOLUTION - WHAT WE CAN DO

We are leveling the playing field and bringing academic equity back to education.  With our immersive learning environment, we are helping build sustainable, happier and healthier education environments where students and future generations are learning, thriving and becoming more academically prepared to reach their career goals.  

We combine rigorous state aligned lessons with immersive 3D technologies to include the power of interactive courses, 3D hands-on lab simulations, and course walk-throughs. Students will receive self paced or instructor led learning that applies real world applications to ensure students relate to the content.

WHAT WE CAN DO

AR/VR experience put students in the middle of lessons to fully engage senses as they PLAY through their learning.  Works on mobiles, tablets, and desktops – No Headset Needed!

In order for education to evolve with the times despite the deterioration in schools and what is being taught in the classroom, the task falls on corporations to step up and ensure our students receive the quality of education they need.  We are filling that need.

Students are not the only ones in need of a step up in educational resources.  Teachers need to be taught the latest technologies, mentored on how to incorporate technologies into their daily teaching, and trained on how to teach courses that are outside of their trained subjects so they can teach them to students.  Our rigorous state aligned lessons are accompanied with ‘Train The Teacher’ sections. We will provide the resources and courses to ensure teachers are trained to teach the classes they are given.



THE TECHNOLOGY

Internationally recognized training designer Cathy Moore sums up “The Big Mistake In eLearning” as failing to shift your thinking from believing your job is to “design information” to understanding that your job is to “design experience”…

Our online portal combines immersive 3D (for flat screens such as mobile and desktop devices) with multi-language translating services.  Our goal is to change the experience of education!  Within our technology, students are given the ability to learn via their individual learning style and individual learning pace.   We design complete K-12 Curriculums with active learning modules that will:

    • Help Solve Teaching & Learning Performance Issues
    • Help Solve Behavioral Challenges In A Fun & Engaging Way
    • Provide A Virtual Hands-On, Real-World Learning Applications Environment
  • Bring Parents Back Into Their Student’s Education

We provide Virtual Reality Ready (WebVR) learning that will “wow” and engage students.   Students begin to learn with a new method of storytelling while being in the middle of their own learning environment.

Our technology allows for our K-12 Curriculums to be dropped into LMS Platforms that supports SCORM/LTI. (Example: Moodle, Cornerstone onDemand, Topyx, Blackboard, Litmos, Docebo, etc.)        

Network Accelerator Inc (NAI) worldwide content delivery platform combines the highest quality content with the latest best-of-breed platforms to deliver the best quality, performance, and overall customer experience available.  To ensure fast and always available access to your content we deploy our solutions on high availability cloud platforms such as Amazon AWS, located in a geographic regions near our customers.

Leveraging cloud platforms in such a way allows NAI to deploy quickly and effectively in new regions, provide 100% SLA on the availability of its content, and leverage the overall capabilities of cloud technologies like never seen before.
