The CAPPA Neighborhood Network Technology Center utilizes evidence based curriculums: Plato Learning Achieve Now and the Why Try Program
The “PLATO Learning Achieve Now” program is a flexible, research-based program designed for K-8th grade students that increases student academic proficiency levels. The program is suitable for many environments, including learning centers and extended day / year programs. The program includes curriculum played on Sony Playstation hand held PSP technologies, learning activities, participant assessment, and teacher support materials. PLATO Learning provides prescriptive, personalized instruction, technology-based teaching tools, standards-driven assessment, and data management to facilitate continuous academic improvement.
The Why Try program is a strength-based approach to helping youth overcome their challenges and improve outcomes in areas of truancy, behavior, and academics. It is based on empirical principles, including Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Social and Emotional Intelligence, and multi-sensory learning. The basic premise of Why Try is to teach social and emotional principles to youth in a way they can understand and remember through a series of ten visual analogies. Each visual teaches a discrete principle which are then reinforced by music and physical activities. The visual, auditory, and body-kinesthetic learning styles are all addressed. The program also comes with pre and post testing. The mission of Why Try is to help people achieve opportunity, freedom, and self-respect using education and interventions that motivate and create positive change. This statement aligns directly with CAPPA's mission.
Students employed by The Center will work with students in an after school program. The student's assistance will help to provide a safe, drug free environment for the youth in the program.
