It’s official. We’re happy to announce an exciting new collaboration with PowerSchool, the leading provider of cloud-based software for K-12 education.
The collaboration brings Skooli’s online tutoring platform together with PowerSchool’s learning management system and Unified ClassroomTM Schoology Learning.
This union gives PowerSchool’s Schoology Learning network access to unlimited 1:1 online tutoring with Skooli.
This means that all schools currently using the platform now have access to Skooli’s unlimited online tutoring for their students, including instant homework help and assignment review. What this also means is that any new schools that sign up for Schoology would also get access to Skooli unlimited, too.
Using the Skooli platform, students can instantly connect with Skooli’s professional educators in a live, advanced digital classroom, 24 hours a day.
Students work with Skooli educators who are trained in online teaching, have teaching licenses, a Master’s or Ph.D. in their subject area of expertise, and undergo extensive background screening.
It’s no secret that quality teachers directly impact students’ learning outcomes, and we can confidently say Skooli’s teachers are among the best.
Online Tutoring & the Global Pandemic
During the global pandemic, it was becoming more obvious that accessibility was getting in the way of student success. Particularly for disadvantaged schools. In more affluent school districts, the transition to an online learning environment was practically seamless.
“The power of the Schoology Learning system combined with the Skooli tutoring platform provides an equitable and accessible platform for districts to support students at all levels,” said Dave Frey, CEO of Skooli.
“Instant access to real live 1:1 online tutoring enables schools and districts to help close the learning gap and improve graduation rates through personalized learning in critical subject areas.
The collaboration with PowerSchool brings Skooli one step closer to realizing their vision of a world where every student can experience the power of a great teacher, on-demand.”
At the height of the global pandemic, 55 million K-12 students, as well as 14 million college students across the US, adjusted to remote, virtual, or hybrid learning environments.
Looking Ahead: Empowering More Students With Digital Innovation
Collaborating with leading organizations in education like PowerSchool is significant.
First and foremost, it’s an opportunity to empower students.
But secondly, it’s an opportunity to combine our platforms and create awareness around barriers such as accessibility that have prevented millions of students across the US from online learning.
PowerSchool’s mission is to power the education ecosystem with unified technology like Skooli to help educators and students realize their potential.
In accordance with PowerSchool, Skooli’s core mission is to create a world where every student experiences the power of a great teacher and realizes their full potential because of it.
With nearly 20 years of experience recruiting top teachers and creating innovative e-learning programs, Skooli supports equity and accessibility. Skooli’s live professional educators are available to all students 24 hours a day.
