SAN CLEMENTE, CA (July 23, 2014)–IT’S THE KIDS ACADEMY PARTNERS WITH HIFI KIDS to develop a platform for students utilizing the EFG Curriculum and performance assessments. This real-world learning prepares students for THEIR future; life, work, service and citizenship. Students integrate reading, math, science, social studies and geography to investigate a real world issue or topic. They utilize critical thinking skills to research contemporary information, compile data, conduct economic analysis, compare viewpoints, separate fact from opinion, and investigate relevant careers. The twelve topics, or Quests, include: Water, Design & Build, Health, Energy, Economics, Government, Land, Communications, The Arts, Weather, Sports, and Travel. Water with “DROP”, Design & Build with “BUILD”, and Health with “DOC” have just been released! Explorers help students investigate the issue or topic, from local and world viewpoints. Using the HiFiKids platform, the students learn real world vocabulary, read to understand the topic, conduct geographic searches, and take a quiz to check student comprehension. Kids receive immediate quiz scores to validate their knowledge and videos provide real world examples. In addition, students, parents, teachers, mentors and tutors can useHifikids’ downloadable Research, Assessment, and Assignment Guides for further investigations. A code is provided for kids to publish student work on www.itsthekids.org. Contests reinforce literacy and critical thinking and photo festivals and essays encourage students to represent information digitally.
Today’s kids continually use technology! This partnership allows students, to utilize digital tools to understand the way the world works and how they will live and work in the world. The efg Curriculum has been tested in schools and homes in 23 states and 5 countries. Through this partnership between It’s the Kids Academy with HiFiKids, we now have an opportunity to spread this valuable learning option to kids all over the world. Join us now with the first 3 Quests and watch for release of the complete series of twelve quests!
