Research shows compelling evidence that longer school days — and even longer school years — can be beneficial for children. Emaginos Inc. has created a new educational model featuring longer school days and school years. The Emaginos Discovery Learning System (“DLS”) outlines a systemic transformation from the current teacher-centered model to a K-12 public education system focused on encouraging and supporting a student’s desire to learn.
“The number-one reason for lengthening the school day is to provide teachers with more time for instruction,” reports a Walden University article (https://nnw.fm/HFU87). “Over the last century, humans have acquired a staggering amount of knowledge and understanding. It makes sense that we now need to spend more time educating children, especially in the STEM fields, where knowledge is advancing rapidly and where job opportunities remain plentiful. If the U.S. is to stay competitive globally, we must produce an educated populace. Extending the school day could be an important step toward securing a strong future.”
Other benefits of longer school days and school years include being more in tune with the modern world and creating a support system for working parents who needed help with childcare. “The 6.5-hour school day — and the long summer break most schools take — originated at a time when children had to help work family farms and ranches,” the Walden article noted. “But keeping this agrarian calendar makes little sense in the information age. If we want to move forward as a nation, we should ensure our children study in a way that complements modern lifestyles and needs.”
Of course, providing teachers with more time for instruction is pointless if the instruction isn’t valuable, and that’s where Emaginos shines. In addition to the DLS system incorporating longer school days and school years, the comprehensive system is built around STEM and enriched curriculum that is project based and student centered. The text-free classrooms are focused on hands-on, engaged learning that incorporates state-of-the-art technology.
“Emaginos’ strength is in providing personalized learning for students with different styles and needs,” said Dr. Keith Larick, Emaginos’ chief education officer and a national leader in the field of integrating technology into teaching (https://nnw.fm/LjvBg). “Over the past 10 years our three beta test schools have graduated over 1,200 students representing a 96% graduation rate. Emaginos provides the tools for young people to be effective in any profession.”
Dedicated to transforming K-12 public schools to a model composed of integrated proven best practices, Emaginos opposes replacing public schools with charter schools or damaging public schools by draining resources through vouchers or school choice programs. Emaginos firmly believes in restoring the concept of the neighborhood schools as the center of the community.
