What are the difficulties of high school?
According to Andressa Fonseca, pedagogical advisor at Plataforma Eleva, one of the main challenges facing the school in the 21st century is dealing with the different profiles of students and constant changes.
She explains that, “when we think of the 21st century school, we cannot fail to identify that one of its main characteristics is its heterogeneity, as well as its‘ metamorphic ’facet, which is always changing. In a classroom that requires constant adaptations, especially to the new demands of students from generations Z and Alpha, there are several challenges. ”
Andressa believes that, in the case of teachers, the biggest challenge is precisely to adapt. “We have an environment where there are different ways of learning and different needs. Working with different methodologies and technological resources and being able to adapt is undoubtedly the biggest challenge for an educator today. ”
In the case of students, the pedagogical advisor points out that the greatest difficulty is that they engage in classes and studies in the face of so many easily accessible digital resources, such as social networks, applications and games.
In addition, they are in a phase of life full of changes and responsibilities, close to beginning adulthood, which requires a lot of maturity and highlights the need for integral development. This process is quite difficult for some teenagers, but school can help to make it a little less turbulent.
How does Plataforma Eleva develop educational projects for high school?
To meet the needs of students and educators, the Eleva Platform offers several educational resources. Some of them are:
- courseware contextualized – uses students’ language to improve communication with them, facilitating understanding. In several modules aimed at the 3rd grade of high school there are QR codes with complementary video classes;
- formative simulations – prepare students for national entrance exams;
- interdisciplinary projects (STEAM) – propose current reflections;
- adaptive online platform – adapts to students’ needs and offers more than 2,000 theoretical and exercise video lessons. It can be accessed through the website and the Eleva Digital application;
- Current project – brings texts on subjects pertinent to the moment in which we live and writing proposals, for example.
In addition, the Eleva Platform offers specific resources for university students. According to Andressa, the goal is to prepare them for both the national and regional and local big events.
Among the resources, Andressa highlights:
- the use of IRT (Item Response Theory) in the correction of simulations, which presents a complete report of student performance;
- the bank of entrance exams from around the country on the online platform;
- teacher videos showing the best approaches and tips;
- materials created exclusively for military tests;
- the Enem Book collection, in which the evidence for each area of knowledge is examined in detail;
- the exclusive team of online newsroom brokers to assist students.
These features can be used in a variety of ways, both in the classroom and at home. In addition, each school determines how to include drills, interdisciplinary projects and current events in its curriculum.
What are the advantages of using the Eleva Platform for high school?
Considering all the resources offered by Plataforma Eleva for high school, students, educators and the school obtain several benefits. Discover some of them.
Contributes to the growth of the school
According to Andressa, internal surveys showed that 80% of the schools in the Eleva Educação group grew in the national ranking of Enem. In addition, 86% of schools that have been partners since 2015 have grown in student numbers.
Supports professionals working in different areas of the school
The Eleva Platform does not only help teachers and students. Andressa explains that, through a solid pedagogical proposal and updated resources, Eleva gives great support to its partners, both administrators, principals and school coordinators as well as teachers.
In the case of educators, there is also a team of continuing education to assist them in the challenges of the 21st century. Eleva A + provides them with manuals and videos on professional development and promotes educational meetings aimed at discussing relevant topics.
Enables the implementation of individualized teaching
By using an adaptive teaching platform such as that offered by the Eleva Teaching Platform, it is possible to promote personalized teaching, which respects students’ differences, seeking to meet their individual needs.
After all, in this virtual environment, each student is able to develop at their own pace and teachers have access to resources to accompany students.
Some of the advantages of this approach are the improvement of the students’ performance, the increase of motivation and engagement and the optimization of the work of the teacher, who is able to accurately identify the needs and difficulties of his students to propose appropriate activities.
Improves student performance in entrance exams
In addition to meeting the individual needs of each student, the Eleva Platform for high school helps to maintain an adequate study routine. This, according to Andressa, is indicated by internal research as one of the factors that contribute to the improvement of students’ performance in the entrance exams.
Faced with so many challenges – some natural in this stage of teaching and others characteristic of today – educators, students, school principals and coordinators are greatly benefited by the use of the Eleva Platform for high school.
