LessonWriter

All teachers are familiar with the gaps between what they want for their students and what they have:
1. Teachers want to use dynamic and exciting materials; they have out-of-date textbooks
2. Teachers want to teach all skills in context; they have curricula that separate content from skills
3. Teachers want to individualize instruction for each student’s needs; they have one prep period a day.

LessonWriter’s mission is to bridge those gaps.

Today, our expert-system software generates standards-based instructional material from any content, teaches skills in context, and individualizes instruction at the click of a mouse.

And we’re just getting started. In this presentation, LessonWriter’s founding team will discuss what schools are asking us for and how we’re developing to meet those needs in our next version.

Jennifer Applebaum (BA, Barnard College; MsED, City College of New York) LessonWriter’s Director of Education, will demonstrate LessonWriter’s current tools for richly differentiated of instruction, and describe plans for even greater instructional flexibility and individualization in version 2.

Ayan Babi Pal (BS, Columbia University), LessonWriter’s Director of Technology, will discuss LessonWriter’s current educational management and reporting tools, and present LessonWriter’s roadmap to 2.0

Stephen Churchville, the president of LessonWriter, will introduce LessonWriter’s publishing tools and demonstrate how outside content creators are able to re-purpose existing materials for education.
