Curriculum Rollout Timeline

Personalised Learning

The “one-size-fits-all” approach to education doesn’t provide the level of engagement and skilled assessment that is needed to help each student succeed. Through Waterford’s personalized learning, lesson materials are delivered at an individualized pace to help each student lead his or her learning.

15 minutes a day

Early childhood studies have reported the importance of short but frequent exposure to learning objectives. Waterford Early Reading™ system automatically stops after 15 minutes of activities to ensure learners acquire the maximum benefits from each learning session.

Truly personalised learning

Advanced educational technology allows Waterford Early Reading™ to map out a learning path that tunes in to each learner’s learning style and pace. The Placement Test assigns the learner to a starting point. Continuous pre-assessments and post-assessments enable the path to adapt and to select the appropriate learning objectives and learning activities to maximize the learning outcome.
