Blended Learning Approach

Our programs appear in a “blended” format, meaning that some essential materials are provided online and others in print. The online curriculum can be shared with an entire class by being projected. In this model, all that is needed is a computer, access to the Internet, and a projection device. In settings with access to shared computers or tablets, students can work online at the direction of their teacher.

In addition to the online materials, print resources are also available:

  • Student Activity Sheets are used by students in the classroom daily and for nightly homework. The sheets can be downloaded as pdfs from the online system or purchased as consumable workbooks.
  • Teachers receive a printed Advice for Instruction book with guidance for teaching each day with Agile Mind. The Advice for Instruction resources are also available online.

About AYD

AYD connects students’ social and emotional learning (SEL) to challenges in school. More students succeed in school, career, and life when they learn skills that support their social and emotional development and then explicitly connect those skills to their academic learning.

This suite of programs translates the latest research on student mindset, motivation, learning, and persistence into practical classroom strategies and tools that can be enacted every day, in every classroom, to produce a lasting impact on every student.

Academic Youth Development programs help students develop the habits of mind
and actions associated with success in school and the workplace, and
have daily opportunities to apply new learning to challenging problems
in mathematics.

Integrating SEL with challenging mathematics

Academic Youth Development connects students’ learning with foundational mathematics content. Students apply new skills to real-world problem-solving in areas of mathematics that are essential to their grade-level achievement. They learn and refine proven strategies for mathematics success, and collaborate with peers to analyze and understand problem situations, develop conjectures, and describe their thinking.
