We Tailor Our Content to You—Because It Works
Say goodbye to one-size-fits-all solutions. With Speak Agent, content tailoring is both affordable and effective. Other leading products cannot easily fit your scope, sequence, and pacing. This misalignment reduces efficacy and increases teacher burden. It is established learning science that the efficacy of computer-assisted instruction depends upon close mapping to the classroom curriculum (Cassady, Smith, & Thomas, 2018). Academic vocabulary and language learning requires repeated exposure through oral and written resources in multiple contexts mapped to the curriculum (Peregoy & Boyle, 2013). And that close mapping is exactly what you get with Speak Agent.
You Control Every Detail
Speak Agent can not only map its pre-built Math, Reading, and Science modules to your curriculum, but it can even tailor content to your precise preferences. You control which exact concepts and vocabulary to target. You decide which texts to use and how to level them. Don't like a visual, a video, an audio file, or a definition? No problem. You can have your own custom versions. Need content tagged by standard or matching a specific reading level? Done! You can even control who can create, adapt, or modify content using Speak Agent's built-in authoring system.
It's Simpler to Implement Than It Sounds
Sounds like a lot of work? Don't worry! This is all part of a standard Speak Agent implementation. Our dedicated team will take care of all of the heavy lifting, from standards-aligned content tailoring to digital lesson planning in four steps:
- You share your curriculum framework for each selected course/subject. For basic tailoring based on our pre-built modules, all we need is your "Year at a Glance."
- Speak Agent drafts a content map for your review and revision. This sets out the number of digital lessons, their titles and topics, the supporting resources to be used, and the learning activities we propose to use for your implementation.
- Speak Agent sets up your tailored implementation with the digital lessons outlined in the content map. Each lesson can be tagged with keywords, standards, reading level, and more. For example, digital lessons can be searchable by standards and resources such as CCSS, NGSS, TEKS, NY Next Generation Standards, WIDA, and more.
- Speak Agent delivers a planning guide to accompany each digital lesson. This provides strategies to accompany each activity, estimated time to completion, vocabulary sets, and any needed preparation or answer keys.
Your team can review and approve content development at any step along the way. Once we have the content map approved, your first digital lesson can be ready for students to start using within days!
Keep Your Content Fresh
Nothing is worse than content that's past its expiration date. With the Speak Agent platform, you (or your dedicated Speak Agent team) can modify digital curricular content and release a new version the same day so that students are always learning the most current and accurate content. You can add new texts and media resources around contemporary events (like a hurricane), new scientific findings (like Pluto's demotion to a dwarf planet), or new pedagogy (like a new math technique).
