iLit 2019 is LIVE!

Hello iLit family.  We are excited to launch our newest version of iLit!  Please read the 2019 Back to School Announcement HERE.

If your students are still using iLit for summer school, no problem.  Please continue to use the summer school sites that start with SS (see previous post).

Summer School 2019 URL Change

Apps and URLs -

For students and teachers using teachilit.com, learnilit.com and projectilit.com, these URL will continue to access the 2018 environment until June 10th.


After June 10th, Summer School customers will need to use the URLs, ss.teachilit.com, ss.learnilit.com and ss.projectilit.com to access the 2018 environment. Apps used throughout this past school year will continue to work.


There is no difference in the user experience and access to data through the use of the new URL remains intact. We provide new URL in order to continue to access the 2018 database while the iLit technology team prepares the 2019 version of iLit.


Rostering -

Districts can be rostered for Summer School through EasyBridge, like always, except if the EasyBridge Pause Period has started. EasyBridge customers will use the same apps they used throughout the year but change their URL to ss.teachilit.com, ss.learnilit.com and ss.projectilit.com.

 

Districts can be manually rostered, as normal, through Classview for summer school. There is not a defined summer school product or class designated for summer school use. Admins can simply log into Classview, set up the class with new or existing students/teachers and provide students/teachers their usernames and passwords through VIEW ROSTER > EXPORT ROSTER. On June 10th, the URL for Classview will change to ss.classview.co.

 

If you have any questions concerning this change, please contact iLit support, 800-234-5832 or https://pearsonnacommunity.force.com/support/s/k12-curriculum-support-form.

iLit U - Summer Edition

Thank you Teachers!

In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, iLit wants to say THANK YOU to our outstanding teachers.  

"Once children learn how to learn, nothing is going to narrow their mind.  The essence of teaching is to make learning contagious, to have one idea spark another." - Marva Collins

Thank you for being that SPARK!

iLit PLC reaches 1000!

We now have 1000 members enrolled in the iLit Professional Learning Community!  Thank you to our teachers, administrators and support staff who joined in the site's first year.  

Visit often to stay informed about iLit with updates on new releases, teaching content, and of course professional learning!

New Reporting Tools for Administrators

Step 1) Log into Classview (classview.co)
Step 2) Click on REPORTING in the blue navigation bar.
Step 3) Locate and click on EXPORTABLE REPORTS.
Step 4) You are provided options to export Reading Growth and Skill-based Reports.
Step 5) Click EXPORT.  The report you chose will download as a .csv file, viewable in Excel or any other spreadsheet program.
 
 
For the Reading Growth Report - The columns identify the Grade Level Equivalency (GLE) of each student that completed that week's Interactive Reading assignment.  If you don't see data for specific weeks, either the student did not complete the Interactive Reader or the teacher did not score the Interactive Reader.  Please email your Project Manager if you have questions about Reading Growth or the Interactive Reader.
 
For the Skill-based Report - The columns identify which Skill Set and Skill are being reported.  The numbers listed are cumulative percentages based on assignments and assessments in iLit tagged with those skills.  For example, an 88 in the column labeled Grammar:Pronouns is the percentage mastery of all assignments and assessments tagged with this skill.  Please email your Project Manager if you have questions about Skill-based reporting or how to read the reports.

iLit Success Stories

Student success is what drives the iLit team.  Please see the latest success stories curated by our iLit team.  Feel free to send your success story to joseph.bartlett@pearson.com

From Milissa in Indiana - 

"Okay so I didn't think I could get prouder of my kids or iLit but it just happened!  We have always kept our technology at the school but this year they have had Chomebooks and we allowed them to take them home last night.  Now mind you these are 6th graders that have free Chromebooks on a Friday!!! Instead of goofing around MY KIDS came home and worked on iLit assignments, emailed me questions, and are ASKING for more writing assignments!!!!  Thank you iLit!!! "

iLit wins the 2015 Tech & Learning magazine Award of Excellence

The winning products will be featured in the December 2015 issue of “Tech & Learning” magazine, as well as on its website.

Honored for the third consecutive year, the iLit mobile app is a comprehensive digital literacy solution designed to produce two or more years of reading growth in an academic year for students in grades 4-10. The intervention program offers personalized learning support based on students’ instructional needs, with engaging interactivities and built-in reward systems that motivate and track progress.
 
Developed to accelerate English language development, iLit ELL’s proven, research-based, digital intervention is enhanced with explicit, point-of-use scaffolding and content to support English language development so English learners can build academic language through word study; develop prosody with the English language; engage in academic discourse by improving English language production; and become independent readers who are successful working at grade level.

Engaging Adolescent Readers

Read this month's Inspired Blog post by iLit author, William G. Brozo, on engaging adolescent readers by relating what students are reading in school to what is going on in their own world.  

Announcements

iLit teachers and administrators,

Thank you for all that you do every day to help your students overcome challenges and develop into strong readers and communicators. We are here to partner with you and support you in every way possible to help you succeed.

To help support you, we launched this Professional Learning Community just over a month ago. We have been excited to see more and more teachers and administrators from across the country—and the globe—joining the community each week.

Here we will post new articles from our authors, provide suggested activities, announce new features, add teaching resources (including many printable resources), and offer professional development support. Please let us know what else we can do to support you. 

Two recently added features that you may want to check out: the Poll and Buzz features. Found in the lower right-hand corner of the Teacher App under the label “Connect,” these features allow you to create your own whole-class polls and assessments on the fly, send individual students or the whole class messages, and reward students with stars for strong performance. To send comments and stars to students, select the students from the list, either type in comments or select the ones that are pre-populated, add stars as appropriate, then hit “Buzz.” At the end of the week, you can project the top stars for the class by tapping or clicking “Project Top Stars.”

Last week we released the latest version of iLit: 5.2.3.    

You can check that you are using this version by clicking on the three dots (...) in the toolbar at the bottom right of the Teacher or Student App.

Visit PearsonAppStore.com to download the updated apps or to launch the newest version in your browser.  It is a good idea to periodically clear your browsing history to be sure you are launching the newest version.

I have Literacy, I, II ,III & IV classes to teach this year. Students range from K-2 grade , 3rd to 5 and 6-8th grade abilities.
    Thanks in advance.
