Customized Playlists to Keep Learners on Track

Facilitator-created playlists to provide appropriate learning pathways and resources for each Learner


At Lindsay High School, playlists are created based on Learner knowledge gaps. In English Language Development (ELD), this is usually triangulated from California English Language Development (CELDT) and Scholastic Reading Inventory (SRI) scores, as well as overall progress through the Empower platform. The Facilitator creates playlists that explicitly state which learning objectives Learners need to show proficiency in by the end of the year and Learners access learning activities for these objectives. Learners are able to adjust some of these based on progress and challenging objectives.
