Overview

The Extralearning center is a physical learning center or small school that offers a blended learning model. It is the high-tech version of the traditional one-room schoolhouse. Each center combines resources, rigor and relationships to create an environment where all students achieve.

Setting

An Extralearning center can be in almost any setting. Centers of varying size have been successfully implemented and operated in primary, intermediate, secondary and vocational public schools, in alternative and charter schools, in community-based organizations, in job training and Job Corps facilities, in adult basic education, welfare and recreation agencies, in shopping malls, in workplaces and unions.

Learners

The Extralearning center can educate almost any learner. Outstanding learning gains have been recorded by remedial and at-risk, as well as gifted and talented students, limited-English learners, the learning disabled, school dropouts, GED participants, welfare mothers and their children, offenders, dislocated workers, and job trainees. Gain rates are similarly impressive for minority and non-minority, old and young, affluent and poor learners. Learning center planners and administrators create centers for specific purposes, most often to target needs not met by mainstream learning and training systems. The Extralearning center provides an option for learners who have few others.

Purpose

The e-Center can serve almost any purpose. The Extralearning modular curriculum, self-paced learning, comprehensive coverage, span of subjects and accountability tools fit a wide range of programs for children, teens and adults. Some centers serve multiple purposes and target populations. Successful activities include:
