Adaptive Learning

Adaptive Learning provides online interactive learning that meets each student where they are academically with formative assessments and individualized pacing. In 2016, we provided 1,012 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 in-person group tutoring, DLCs provide homeless students with access to the Internet, technology, Digital Learning programs, games and activities.

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 three additional DLCs in Compton, San Fernando Valley and Chino Hills. Expansion is ongoing.

Our DLCs provide us with a space to pilot and implement the latest Digital Learning tools and programs such as Coding & Animation, Virtual Reality (VR) & Virtual Field Trips and 3D Printing.

Digital Learning After School Programs (DLASP)



.

In partnership with schools and school districts, DLASPs are designed to provide Digital Learning and traditional in-person tutoring to homeless students living in motels, cars, RV parks and on the streets. DLASPs ensure a safe space for homeless students to receive academic support at their school site.

In September of 2015, we opened our first DLASP in West Anaheim. Since then, School on Wheels has established DLASPs in various cities including Los Angeles, Boyle Heights and Compton. We are continuing to expand DLASPs to schools with high numbers of homeless students.
