Mindplay educational software for reading instruction

We Teach Reading

The ComputED Gazette  recently announced the winners  of its 20th Annual Best Educational Software Awards.  The Awards target innovative and content-rich programs and websites that provide parents and teachers with the technology to foster educational excellence. Our favorite reading program, MindPlay Virtual Reading Coach. is among the 2014 award winners. Congratulations to theVirtual Reading Coach!

MindPlay Education Software has three solutions to help every student become a fluent, grade-level reader: RAPS 360 Diagnostic Assessment, MindPlay Virtual Reading Coach  (MVRC), and FLRT – a fluent reading trainer.

RAPS 360  is a series of adaptive tests that are used to identify the specific skill gaps for every student. It takes less than thirty minutes to assess an entire class and reports are immediately available to help target instruction. In addition to screening, the RAPS 360 assessment is used for progress monitoring. For more information on RAPS 360 , click here .

MVRC  teaches fluent reading to everyone, from early learners to adults. MVRC  is especially effective for struggling students and students who have failed other methods. MVRC  begins with an assessment to identify each student’s instructional needs, it then automatically builds a Prescriptive Reading Plan (PRP). The PRP contains direct, explicit, differentiated instruction and activities that fill those gaps in the areas of Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Vocabulary, Fluency, and Comprehension. MVRC also contains lessons in Grammar for Meaning to provide the initial link between simply reading words and reading text for meaning – all of which will ensure that users will exit the program reading at grade level or better. Most students experience improvement within ten hours and become fluent readers at their full potential between 40 and 60 hours. For more information on MVRC , click here  or take a quick Virtual Tour of MVRC .

FLRT – a fluent reading trainer  helps average and above average students with good phonics skills to read more fluently. Students quickly increase their reading level, speed, and comprehension by practicing with over a thousand authentic reading passages. For more information on FLRT , click here .

MindPlay’s mission is to develop, publish, and distribute cost effective, technology-based programs that promote accelerated student learning, individual growth, and skill development. We guarantee student results when used with fidelity. MindPlay solutions use clear objectives, inviting graphics, and modern technological innovations, so the programs appeal to multiple learning styles. Student interest level remains high because they receive only the lessons required to fill in the gaps in their overall skills.

Education grants courses cash to help with your education

Education Grants & Courses Cash to help with your education

Whether you’re a teenager thinking of going to university or an adult wanting to retrain, there may be a grant or a loan to help you fund your learning.

Free short courses

What is a grant?

Students moving onto higher education can get Government grants to help with the cost of studying. These can go towards study materials, accommodation, food, or anything you want since it’s paid directly to your bank account.

Eligibility can depend on a student’s household income, location, or background, while universities who charge over the basic fee level of Ј6,000 must provide bursaries for those from low-income backgrounds.

Unlike a maintenance loan or tuition fees, you don’t have to pay back bursaries or maintenance grants, so double-check to see if you’re entitled to anything.

The top education grants

Check the following ways to see if you might be eligible for a financial boost.

Hidden scholarship and funding

If you’re going to uni, there are loads of hidden pots of cash available. They’re often less about academic ability and more about factors such as religion, where you live or what your parents do for a living.

Educational Grants Service: This service offers students, especially disadvantaged ones, guidance and advice to help them secure funding for education and training. You can search its database of over 30 educational trusts .

Postgraduate funding: There’s less help available for people wanting to do a second or third degree as normal student loans aren’t available. Postgrad Solutions’ Ultimate Postgraduate Student Funding Guide lists sources of funding, but better yet is the quirky Alternative Guide to Postgraduate Funding. It’s a paid-for service, so you’ll need to ask your current university to give you access, but it’s highly recommended by career advisors.

  • Scholarships and bursaries: There are nifty search tools on the Scholarship Search and Studentcashpoint websites – you’ll be surprised at what’s available. Some are very specific and are aimed at students from various backgrounds.

    Study in Europe: If you want to study abroad for a year at one of 33 participating European universities, grants are available from the British Council as part of the Erasmus scheme.

    Here are some examples of grants to give you inspiration.

    I managed to get a journalism course funded through a New Deal advisor at the jobcentre after I was turned down for another grant. It was a long process and I had to prove that the course would lead to gainful employment, but I was persistent and got a grant for Ј3,000. It’s worth asking the jobcentre “is there any way I can get help to pay for this course?

    I was sponsored Ј1,000 towards the cost of a legal studies course by a small charity. Just need to find the rest now.

    Who can apply? Varies What’s the maximum award? Varies What does it cover? Help towards tuition fees and/or general funding to help you be able to study

    Music Education

    Selection and preparation in music education at Florida State University is based upon an important yet extremely simple premise–it is, that every person involved as a learner ought to have the best instruction possible.

    This premise implies that every teacher ought to be committed to the subject of music and its use with people. The strength of this commitment is evidenced by the academic and social behaviors of the prospective teacher in life, both in and out of the university environment, and is characterized by diligence in the pursuit of musical and academic excellence and active dedication to the improvement of the quality of life.

    For those who value knowledge, the learning process is perpetual throughout life’s time. To be an effective music educator, one must develop:

    1. the ability to think, and therefore, value and discriminate,
    2. the ability to feel, and therefore, become sensitive to aesthetic qualities in music and life, and
    3. the courage to act, and therefore, translate those abilities to think and feel into overt behaviors.

    Successful music educators evidence personal qualities of leadership, intellectual curiosity, and social commitment. They approach life, music, and the teaching profession in a positive, imaginative, and enthusiastic way.

    The music teacher attempts to create a respect and desire for musical experiences, teaching people to react positively, listen responsively, and participate in a musically sensitive manner by providing a variety of musical experiences for those who will be consumers of music and those who will be music professionals.

    Toward this goal, music educators are stimulated by current research in music to seek, evaluate, and appropriately implement current ideas and developments in teaching music. They promote positive relationships with students, colleagues, and others. They are empathetic with people of differing social and ethnic backgrounds, and demonstrate mature attitudes and values in the operation of the instructional program.

    They consistently maximize student opportunities and accomplishments, and minimize self-aggrandizement and teacher dominance. Their public performances are part of instructional programs geared to helping students become sensitive to aesthetic elements in music.

    Music specialists must be prepared and eager to teach music to every child: the poor, ethnic minorities, children of the inner cities, persons with disabilities, and the highly gifted.

    In addition to personal competencies in music performance, improvisation, conducting, applied music, composing, arranging, analysis, history, repertoire, and other musical skills, they must have competencies in the teaching of music on all levels, nursery school through adult and continuing education programs. They must be exposed to techniques of teaching in the humanities, related arts, and general music areas, as well as, directing performance groups, studio teaching and group applied music lessons.

    Musicians are most successful as teachers if they understand current structures, systems, and practices in education. Concurrently, the music educator in this age of educational change and accountability must be able to express knowledge of teaching and learning, through verbal communication (oral and written) and through overt, demonstrable music and teaching behaviors.

    A general knowledge and understanding of history, science, art, philosophy, and communication serves to enhance one’s ability to function effectively in contemporary society and facilitates greater understanding of the human condition. The final report of the Music Educators’ National Conference on "Teacher Education in Music" states that general education should:

    1. help the student understand him/herself as a person,
    2. assist in the development of positive attitudes and penetrating insights toward others and the world,
    3. encourage acceptance of change and enable the student to approach new ideas with an open mind,
    4. provide the ability to apply appropriate evaluative techniques and establish an attitude of curiosity, and
    5. provide another dimension for the pre-service music educator by helping the student relate his/her own art to other related disciplines.

    The task of structuring and managing a musical environment in which individuals, regardless of ability level, may positively experience, successfully achieve, and hence, come to value the art of music, demands a breadth of knowledge and skills, as well as high levels of perception and sensitivity on the part of the music educator.

    The acquisition and development of these abilities requires an intellectual commitment that is realized in daily living and is maintained and strengthened during the years of training and throughout the professional career.

    The music education faculty at the Florida State University College of Music is dedicated to the pursuit of these goals, both for themselves and for their students.
