Rethink Announces Addition of Student Activity Center, Making Their Model the First Comprehensive Special Education Solution

NEW YORK, April 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Rethink is pleased to announce the launch of its Student Activity Center, a newly developed interface for children featuring computer-based activities aligned with the platform's curriculum, reporting, and progress monitoring tools. The Student Activity Center makes Rethink the first comprehensive and fully integrated special education performance management system to address all the needs of special educators at the classroom, school, and administrative level.

"We are thrilled to be offering this expanded platform to our school district customers," says Daniel Etra, Rethink co-founder and CEO. "We have now fulfilled our long-standing goal of providing districts nationwide with a complete solution to effectively serve their students with special needs."

The Student Activity Center completes Rethink's fully integrated model by aligning student activities and data with the curriculum, progress monitoring, and video-based training available to teachers on the platform and providing district and school-level administrators performance analytics on student IEP progress and staff engagement.

While school districts across the country have spent the last decade and millions of dollars on the technology needed to monitor and guarantee compliance with LRE and other special education mandates, Rethink is unique in that it integrates all of the key components of a successful special education program—Curriculum, Staff Training, and Data Tracking—into one platform. In this way, Rethink not only provides districts with much needed data on students with IEPs, but also ensures that research-based teaching methods and quality measures for evaluating student progress are in place, thus making data more meaningful and reliable.

The Student Activity Center features fun, engaging, and educational computer-based activities fully aligned with the platform's existing curriculum and customized to students' individual skill levels. Students can log into the Activity Center at home, in the classroom, or anywhere they have access to the Internet and complete customized activities that help build and reinforce the skills they are working on in the classroom.  

All student activity is tracked in the Rethink system alongside any classroom data collected by the teacher, giving teachers more opportunities to reinforce the skills they are teaching in the classroom, monitor IEP progress, and make data-based decisions about a student's learning program.

"Research tells us that students with disabilities make the most meaningful progress when we can significantly increase learning opportunities throughout their day. Rethink's new Student Activity Center provides one more way – in addition to training for teachers, paras, and family members – to engage students online and strengthen learning at school and home. We know many students will benefit from these computer-mediated ABA exercises, which are fully integrated with Rethink's existing online special education platform," says Jamie Pagliaro, Rethink's Executive Vice President and Chief Learning Officer.

Rethink is quickly becoming the integrated solution for special education programs nation-wide, offering a range of integrated tools—including the new Activity Center—designed to address the needs of students, teachers, and school and district administrators alike.
