by Dale BurtonMy goal as a second grade Learning Expert Teacher is for my students to develop a life-long passion for learning. I also hope they learn to appreciate constructive struggle, develop perseverance, and become self-motivated.

The core of the BASIS.ed philosophy is to empower students to take responsibility for their own education and help them be pro-active in their evolution as a lifelong learner.

However analog, this tool has proven to increase student retention and encourage students to be accountable for their learning.
