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.
The major components of Kidport as shown in the diagram above include:
Kidport is designed around "Think-and-Learn" modules which make students aware of the thinking skills they need to use while they are learning. The thinking and learning skills are tied to curriculum content to help students transfer the thinking skills to their homework. These interactive modules are also designed to help students learn the required K-8 materials. Projects are integrated into the learning modules to provide ompelling real-world experiences and applications. Integrated reference materials provide the necessary background for Kidport activities and help with other school projects.
The Curriculum content is designed with a "Traps-and-Gaps" emphasis which focuses on areas where students have problems. These problem areas may be due to the difficult concepts or misconceptions (traps), or material that is not covered thoroughly in school (gaps).
Many sections of Kidport are still under construction. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
