Adaptive Learning

Adaptive Learning provides online interactive teaching that meets each student where they are academically and provides formative assessments and individually paced learning. In 2016, we provided 620 homeless children access to adaptive learning programs resulting in significant improvements in math and English Language Arts.

Online Tutoring

Online Tutoring eliminates geographic boundaries for tutoring homeless students. Volunteers from all corners of the United States can now tutor students wherever they may be.

How It Works

Students and their tutor connect in a live, online classroom and collaborate using audio, video and a shared whiteboard. Tutors can upload documents in real-time and utilize built-in Khan Academy features. Online Tutoring sessions are recorded so that students may rewatch as needed.

Digital Learning Centers (DLC)

Combining Digital Learning with traditional tutoring, DLCs provide homeless students with access to the Internet, technology and in-person tutors.

On Digital Learning Day in March 2015, we opened our first DLC at the Skid Row Learning Center. Since then, School on Wheels has designed and created two more DLCs in Compton and Chino Hills.
