Description

LearnZillion is a learning platform that combines video lessons, assessments, and progress reporting. Each lesson highlights a Common Core standard, starting with math in grades 3-9.

We started LearnZillion at E.L. Haynes Public Charter School in Washington, D.C. because we wanted to solve a problem. We knew what lessons our students needed but we didn't have enough time to teach each student the right lesson. To create more time, and to share best practices across classrooms, E.L. Haynes' teachers began to capture their expertise on screencasts. We posted them on a homemade website and coupled them with a short quiz to help us track student progress.

This tool is pretty smart. The tutorials can help struggling students or give students who excel a chance to work ahead. I would recommend the product to anyone who teaches math or language arts. I hope that in the future the site incorporates other subjects such as foreign language, test-taking skills, or more advanced levels of math and reading. The best thing about it is the narration of the slides and the fact that it is free. It could use more interaction with students, however, perhaps allowing them to do a sample problem and then sending them to a slide that reteaches if they get it wrong.

High quality lessons that tap in on visual learning presented by amazing teachers; supported by Bill Gates; excellent teaching tied to Common Core standards with awesome extra features. Slides or videos. Worth seeing for yourself!

I really like the design and ease-of-use for finding Common Core aligned lesson plans. I have not seen this kind of design on other lesson plan sites. As a homeschool mom, I try to teach Common Core whenever I can. Learnzillion helps me do that easily. My children also enjoy video lessons more than printable lessons, though I use a combination of both in my home instruction. I would recommend Learnzillion to others.

You can learn a lot about a (education) startup if you listen to a founder tell its origin story – how she came to identify a problem, and how she devised the solution. You can ascertain a lot about mission and trajectory based on how she frames that narrative. Khan Academy has a fairly well-known origin story, for example. It’s one that Sal Khan tells a lot: he was tutoring his cousin remotely; he made some math videos, which she...
