This new dashboard is meant to aid teachers to improve their language instructions. The goal "is to provide a personalized learning experience that gives each student and instructor immediate feedback in the classroom".
How it works
Duolingo for schools allows users to filter and keep track of their students, in addition according to SLJ:
Skill levels plus XPs give rough guidelines of student progress. Teachers receive weekly skill and lesson summary reports, which can be easily shared with parents.
Users can also refer to the School Feature Userguide.
This practice involves "a session that is tailored to your classroom’s overall language level.", however, unlike a normal practice it doesn't include listening and speaking exercises.
Allows users to "export classroom summaries to CSV".
Course Content explorer
Allows users to "see an overview of the entire course and find out what to expect from each skill in advance".
Duolingo alone won’t teach enough of a living language to ever replace a quality in-person teaching program, but it absolutely belongs in every language classroom and on every school device.
