Adaptive Learning Approaches

Adaptive Education with Apples

The Spaulding Method at all times works to teach every student through visual, auditory and kinesthetic processes in parallel.
Studies show that traditionally instructed classrooms tend to group students into three main groups.  Roughly 25% of student receive honor role grade levels,
Roughly 50% of the pack tend to receive the standard B and C level grades,
The remaining 25% tends to receive D level grades. 
This is often not a sign of intelligence or aptitude in any way but often results from the way material is presented.

For example:
If a standard classroom was taught fractions by the teacher drawing 1/4 on the blackboard and 1/2 on the blackboard to illustrate the difference between one quarter and one half respectively,  25% of the class will get the concept right away, 25% will be left scratching their heads in confusion wondering how 4 can be smaller than 2 when it at first blush is a larger number, while the remainder of the class will have to re-hash the concepts in their minds in order to fully comprehend the concepts. 
If you then took the same classroom, did not teach them in the first manner presented and assigned each student an apple and a knife.  Instructed the class to cut that apple into two pieces and then four pieces in order to explain halves and quarters, the 25% of the class that would regularly get a D grade would all-of-a-sudden receive an A and the 25% of the class that would have received an A would then receive a D.  In essence, the kinesthetic learners will excel in this environment and the visual or auditory learners will more naturally struggle as they try to reconcile the concepts in their minds. 
Even though each student must directly apply themselves and A level grades can not be “guaranteed” in any environment, the Spaulding Method aims and has a record for achieving extremely high results in each student trained because the education model wraps around the mind of the student rather than the student having to wrap their mind around the teacher or teaching style. 
The proof is in our many awards gained through the years. 
More on how this approach can be proven to be revolutionary can be found in this engaging video:

A quick side note:
It just so happens that some of the greatest minds in Math and Science, experience their craft through the mind of an artist: Gallileo, for example, was not only talented in math but also in art. Daniel Tammet (a still living autistic genius who can recite Pi to the thousandth decimal place and learn any language in 7 days) experiences numbers in 3 dimensions with color and texture. He uses his creative mind to solve analytical problems, a balanced brand approach to doing work.

Every mind has the above potential even though every mind is not architected in the same way. The Spaulding Method succeeds at leveraging all types of minds and mental development. From grade-school students to advanced high school students, we teach each student how to gain the most out of their minds and how to learn most effectively.
