Warwick Parish, Bermuda – September 2018 – Warwick Academy is actively revolutionizing the education landscape of Bermuda’s future leaders with the introduction of GradeSlam, an award-winning personalized online learning hub that allows students to access to a private tutoring 24/7. The private school will cover the cost of one-on-one tutoring for students in grade 12 and 13 as a pilot project with the potential of expanding.
The platform focuses on personalized and inquiry based learning by guiding students through a problem, rather than giving an answer right away. This philosophy promotes critical thinking, problem-solving, goal setting, and digital literacy - a skill set that cultivates the confidence needed for teenagers to succeed academically. The program includes a chat room equipped with a digital whiteboard and file sharing option, an essay review section, a group messaging option for teamwork and personalized office hours for teachers to communicate with the students after school hours. Combined, all these features will allow students to access the help they need at any time, removing any barriers to their scholastic success. This year, the upper year students at Warwick Academy will be equipped with every tool they need to be prepared and ready for post-graduation endeavours whether it is the workplace or University.
Warwick Academy’s Principal, David Horan has been credited with bringing many innovative initiatives to the school over the years and is at the forefront of the introduction of GradeSlam as a learning tool. Under Horan’s leadership, the Academy shows true determination to adapt to the students' needs. “As the first school in Bermuda to provide private personalized learning to its students, David further demonstrates his true commitment to providing students with every opportunity to succeed”, says Daniel Gorodetsky, Partnership Manager at GradeSlam. “We are extremely proud to be able to partner with such progressive schools and leaders that put the students first.”
Warwick’s introduction of GradeSlam’s personalized tutoring hub strengthen its current position as pioneers in the Bermuda education ecosystem but created a new benchmark and standard for other schools across the country.
GradeSlam provides students with unlimited one-on-one online tutoring for any subject, at any time. At GradeSlam, educators make students better learners by providing contextualized feedback on precisely where the student went wrong in the learning process and guiding them towards a deeper understanding of the problem. As all of the tutoring sessions are recorded and analyzed, GradeSlam equips teachers with a formal record of their student’s learning outside of the classroom, completely the learning feedback loop.
