It takes a village to raise a child

Posted on December 16, 2011 at 9:44 AM
 
It takes a village to raise a child.
 
 
 
The Achieve Academy has opened its Virtual academic center.
 
Most of us have heard the African proverbial saying “It takes a village to raise a child”. We believe that this holds true for the inner-city as well. We have had the distinct privilege of watching leaders in our Indianapolis community come beside our students to offer  them better opportunities to achieve academic success. At Achieve International we are committed to the challenge of helping our students take back their education and reclaim their future.  Most of our students are enrolled in some type of online learning. We began to investigate what it would take to get a few computers for our students at AI to assist in academic research and credit recovery.  Dr. Greenwood of IPS and Don Kent of Net Literacy collaborated to donate eight computers to AI.  Another sponsor purchased us new computer tables and chairs for both the computer lab and Achieve Academy Class room. All of the IT services were donated as well as the Ethernet cables and in just a few weeks we were online and a fully functional virtual academy.
 
 Online or virtual learning as it is called, has become a fast-growing approach to educating students.  Over the past decade this method of instruction has grown in the setting of kindergarten through 12th grade as well as many college courses. In IPS and surrounding school systems, online learning and the PLATO system founded by Bill Gates are being utilized to give students the opportunity to recover credits placing them back on track to graduate with their class.  These courses have the distinct advantage of being self-paced. This allows a student to advance through the material as quickly as they can master the subject matter. If a student is struggling in a particular subject he can take the extra time need to be confident in the material and succeed. This approach allows students to cater education to their needs and abilities.  We encourage our students to utilize the Khan Academy.  
 
The Khan Academy is a non-profit educational organization, created in 2006 by MIT graduate Salman Khan. The Khan Academy supplies our students with a free online collection of more than 2,700 micro lectures via video tutorials where each subject is broken down and thoroughly explained. This has proven to be a useful tool in breaking down the most complex of subjects.  Mr.Khan explains things in a way that our students get.
Credit recovery, Ivy Tech online courses, day adult education and reclaim your future are all programs that our students are employing to transform their lives and take back their academic future. We are humbled and honored by all of the people that have walked beside this project and helped push it forward into a working reality. Thank you all for helping us transform lives through faith and education.
