The Learn Jelly's online platform is a standards-based solution which helps elementary students learn deeper and improve reading and critical thinking skills through the process of digitally drawing and animating stories based on content areas.
Our platform provides educators with an online library filled with stories based on 204 concepts from content areas such as math, science, and social studies which are written at various reading levels. Once educators find a story that matches their teaching objectives, they assign it to an individual or group of students. The platform then ushers students through a series of activities which allows them to transform the story into a digital drawing and animation using drawing tools and visual block coding.
The Learn Jelly platform leverages the power of visualization and retelling activities, which is a well-established reading comprehension instructional and assessment practice in elementary schools (Brown & Cambourne, 1990; Morrow, 1985). Additionally, the animation activities provide a fun way to introduce every student to Computer Science.
