Williston School Hopes "3D" Program Will Improve Reading Skills
Vision Christian Academy near Williston is the first to use the "3D Learner" program in a classroom setting. The program uses techniques meant to engage students who may learn better visually.
Previously, all students using it had been mentored individually. Eight kids participate in the full program that costs about $1,000 per student. Two hours is spent on it each day.
"What we're really trying to get away from, quite honestly, is the paper-pencil just get it done versus having them actually master information," said program developer Mira Halpert.
Halpert said she hopes to see more schools using the program in their classrooms. She will be analyzing student progress at Vision Christian Academy throughout the school year.
