BrainFlex is Back for Summer 2016!
Between the end of one school year and the start of another, students experience learning loss when they aren’t involved in educational activities. CK-12 helps bridge the gap with BrainFlex, a free summer challenge that provides daily math and science practice to keep students’ brains active. With over 100,000 adaptive practice questions, students get a variety of questions aimed at what they want to learn and at the level they need.
Students can accept the challenge by agreeing to participate for as little as 20 minutes a day. The BrainFlex app keeps students on-track with reminder emails and a dashboard to track progress. As with all CK-12 resources, students can learn anytime, anywhere, and on any device.
Teachers can invite students to participate in the challenge and even track their progress over the eight-week period. CK-12 makes it easy for teachers to invite whole classes or coach individual students.
Coaches are often parents, teachers, relatives, or friends who mentor students and track progress throughout the summer.
This is the second year for the BrainFlex challenge, and CK-12 has added some great features to the program:
- We’re raising the challenge and asking students to answer 7 questions correctly (instead of 5) before moving on to the next concept.
- Coaches have their own dashboards to monitor student progress and can send encouraging notes to students through CK-12’s messaging system.
Preventing learning loss doesn’t require a huge time commitment, it just requires consistency. A little practice each day goes a long way! Sign up today at www.ck12.org/summer/
