A Message From Our President
Ticket to Read®
Posted on Apr 4, 2016
"Velocity helps unlock the potential of students and teachers alike and fundamentally changes
the classroom ecosystem,” said Jeffrey A. Elliott, President of Voyager Sopris Learning. “By
facilitating precisely the kinds of one-on-one interactions that great teachers have always sought
to deliver, Velocity extends the teacher’s presence in the classroom and allows all students to
have access to the most effective teaching.”
Developed in collaboration with Enlearn, a Seattle-based nonprofit education innovator,
Velocity’s unique approach rapidly propels students forward in reading comprehension, word
study, language and foundational skills – a known challenge for traditional adaptive learning
solutions. Velocity delivers meaningful individualized instruction in this complex instructional
area by adapting at the thought-process level, using proprietary dynamic learning technology to
continually monitor each individual student’s understanding of countless subtle learning
concepts and to instantly adjust its approach to each of these concepts, helping to make learning
as effective as possible. Velocity is equally beneficial to teachers, providing actionable insights
in real-time throughout the learning process.
Velocity benefits K-5 students in the following ways:
In addition, Velocity is the only adaptive learning solution to offer a three-tiered approach that
will modify the instruction before, during and after a student has completed a particular problem.
Velocity benefits teachers in the following ways:
“Velocity has been key in closing gaps for students reading below grade level,” said Emily Cole,
teacher at the Uplift Summit Academy in Arlington, Texas. “Velocity is able to identify areas
that students struggle with and then teach them the key skills required to be successful readers.”
Conforming to both national and state standards, the Velocity platform has been beta-tested by
1,250 students in more than 140 classes around the country, including schools and districts in
Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Texas and Virginia.
