Catch of the Day - Kidport - 31 Mar 10

Kidport is an Internet-based educational service designed to help K-8 students excel in school. It provides a unique, multi-step program to create empowered learners, not simply good students.

To make students aware of the thinking skills they use while learning, Kidport is built around "Think-and-Learn" modules. These thinking and learning skills are tied to curriculum content to help students carry-over these thinking skills to their work.

Kidport Components

Projects are integrated into the learning modules to provide real-world experiences and applications. Integrated reference materials provide background for Kidport activities as well as help with other school work.

Kidport is a directory of links to several thousand web sites. These links are sorted by grade level (K-8) and by curriculum area.

Kidport curriculum content is designed using a "Traps-and-Gaps" concept which focuses on areas where students may have problems, problems that may arise due to difficult concepts or common misconceptions (traps) or content that is not learned thoroughly in school (gaps).
