Want to increase student proxy hours?  Here are some tips to help get students become independent Burlington English students: 

1. Encourage students to use mobile devices to work on vocabulary practice and digital readers.

As noted previously, BE mobile is temporarily not displaying some content for learners.

Burlington English has informed us that CASAS is temporarily unavailable on the Burlington English mobile version (as of 2/27/17). They expect to have this available again within the next few days.

We have been advised programs should nbow be able to login to Skills Tutor to access past reports.

Burlington English vocabulary practice for general courses will be available on all mobine devices as of January 17!

Please note that it is not currently possible to run Skills Tutor teacher level reports. We are working with Skills Tutor (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) to resolve this situation.

Join us online for an introduction to Khan Academy for Distance Learning on Tuesday, November 29, 2016 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM CST.

At the recommendation of the Virtual Task Force, the mastery requirement for claiming proxy hours for approved time-on-task platforms has been removed by MDE.

Northstar (Minnesota Literacy Council)  is partnering with IDEAL Consortium (EdTech Center @ World Education) as strand partners for the Technology/Digital Literacy strand at the 2017 COABE conference, April 2-7, 2017 in Orlando, Florida.
