ABOUT US

ABOUT US

EDUSPARK is an international provider of quality enrichment and innovation in dual language instruction.

We believe that the ability to learn in English and Spanish opens up a world of possibilities to Spanish-speakers students and a brighter future for the economy. We believe that dual language and bilingual education is the cornerstone to ensuring the U.S. has a well-educated workforce well into the future.

EDUSPARK recognizes that educators, parents, and society need and want resources that help Spanish-speakers students achieve success.

EDUSPARK’s systematic tools and digital resources currently serve more than 700 Elementary Schools in the United States, 800 Elementary Schools and 1,000 Adult Education Centers in Mexico, and other schools in Central and South America.


AWARDS AND PARTNERSHIPS

Our Mission

EDUSPARK is dedicated to empowering teachers and students to reach their full potential through dual-language resources based on research in neuroscience and technology. Our systematic tools and learning resources increase students’ intellectual capacity, academic vocabulary and concept development in English and Spanish, motivation, communication, and collaborative skills.



EDUSPARK provides quality cognitive development and ongoing support so that educators have the tools and resources they need to help their Spanish-speaking students achieve success in school and in life.



Social Responsibility

EDUSPARK’s employees have developed great sensitivity to the needs of Spanish-language students in Mexico and the U.S. EDUSPARK engages its employees in social change and giving back to the community, primarily through community service projects that benefit students and teachers in low-income communities.



At the Centro Educativo Fundación San José, an elementary public school in Nuevo León, México, EDUSPARK donated services and products to train 20 teachers. Seven of our employees participated in this project. This benefited about 1,000 students through the non-profit Fundación Educativa San José, A.B.P.



EDUSPARK donated training and resources for volunteer parent-training courses in the Austin ISD. We will also donate materials and resources for a dual language summer camp for low-income children.



Education is our passion, and our vision is that better education will lead to a fairer, more humane, and more intelligent world.

BRAIN-BASED LEARNING APPROACH

Brain-Based Learning Approach

Taking advantage of the left and right different brain thinking processes can improve learning.
MT Aldrete explains that effective learning occurs when students:

1. Learn through senses and motion.
2. Represent reality with symbols using their imagination and emotions.
3. Using logical and critical thinking.
4. Applying their knowledge and language into projects.

When students have a strong foundation in concrete, symbolic, emotional, and social learning, they can move to the analytical-logical-critical thinking to deal successfully with problems, decision-making, projects, essays, or tests.

Teachers benefit from a dynamic learning environment that encourages students to enjoy learning and that actively assists them in reaching their potential.

HOW DO WE LEARN?

EDUSPARK’s effective instructional design integrates meaningful principles that represent scientific understanding of how our brain works in the context of education.
This is a summary on BRAIN RULES by John Medina: Some rules to improve learning in school, work and home.


1. Doing exercise-movement.
2. We are better at seeing patterns than we are at recording details.
3. Emotional arousal helps the brain learn.
4. Brain needs repetition to remember. Information is remembered when it is elaborated, meaningful, and contextual.
5. The way to build long-term memory is to incorporate new information gradually and repeat it in timed intervals.
6. Stressed brains do not learn the same way.
7. Stimulate more of the senses at once.
8. Vision is by far our most dominant sense.
9. We can recognize and imitate patterns because of “mirror neurons” across our brain.

 

EDUSPARK’s dual language resources encourage students to virtually explore their world, challenge them to acquire dual-language academic vocabulary and concepts and to think critically. It also promotes curiosity, creativity, imagination and long-term retention, and helps to develop a lasting excitement about learning.

By delivering sensory, motor, and linguistic stimuli in English and Spanish, EDUSPARK promotes concrete and significant learning, so that a student can move through the analytical-logical-critical thinking processes and acquire knowledge. Neural development is supported and interdependent and integrated functioning of the left and right brain hemispheres is enhanced.

“People can learn by being told; they can learn by observing social models; they can learn through spatial navigation; they can learn through reinforcement; they can learn by exploration; and they can even learn implicitly without any intent or awareness they are learning at all. These pathways of learning engage different brain circuitry.” (Schwartz, Lindgren, & Lewis, 2009)

EDUSPARK brain-based digital curriculum increases overall academic achievement by improving:

• Oral language and reading skills
• Self-confidence
• Social skills
• Long-term memory
• Attention level
• Imagination and creativity
• Logical and analytical skills
• Art and music skills
• Problem solving skills
• Critical thinking
• Motivation to learn

These are just a few powerful
benefits for Teachers:

• Learn how to integrate the latest in children’s brain development research with best practices for dual language instruction.

Research about Early Childhood Education

Studies by The Rand Corporation and the University of Wisconsin along with Steven Barnett at Rutgers University demonstrate that early childhood education for disadvantaged or low-English proficiency students will produce positive outcomes for school districts, including the following benefits:

• High school achievement – more likely to graduate from high school
• Less grade retention
• Reduced need for special education at a later age
• Less crime

Supporting academic needs during ASP occur in a fun way!

  • Often, school districts struggle to design, operate, or contract after school programs (ASP) that help English Language Learners(ELL) to develop, explore, and have fun in a safe and educational environment. Their challenge is to obtain better results in schools with high Hispanic populations, and their main concern is that the ASP enriches and reinforces academic needs.

Sparkito is a very engaging program to help build vocabulary and content knowledge in bilingual classrooms. I got and overview on the 5E model, best practices in English and Spanish, and how to use Sparkito to plan meaningful lessons. It's so important to immerse children in new vocabulary and concepts over a prolonged period and many, many times. I will use Sparkito and Comprendo to enhance my teaching and support my students. I will also use the Lesson Plan format to help in my planning. Laura was very engaging. The program seems to have been very thoughtfully created and I look forward to using it.

EDUSPARK has now become a very useful tool in my Spanish classes. My students have learned a wide vocabulary with excellent pronunciation. Children enjoy the audiovisual material, the songs, and the interactive activities, especially when they get to participate using the electronic whiteboard. Everyone in my class is eager to participate, and their attention and interest level have improved.
With EDUSPARK, I have noticed that my students learn faster, and when I review the material of earlier month’s lessons, I am quite surprised to discover that their retention level is at over 80%.
EDUSPARK is an innovative and creative tool that has renewed my approach to teaching, and I am convinced of its effectiveness in the learning process of my students.

Ana Wallace / Pre-K Spanish Teacher
Austin International School
Austin, Texas

We used EDUSPARK [reading] and [toddlers] programs, in 04-05 school year, to teach Spanish to our 2-5 year old students, and we were pleasantly surprised with the results. They were even learning words they previously didn’t know in English. I feel this method breaks all traditional teaching structures, and stimulates sensorial perception for kids to learn in a creative, fun, fast, and effective way.

Nancy Baron / Spanish teacher
Saint John Lutheran Early Childhood School
Houston, Texas

Worth your time. Anything that you can go implement is worthwhile and this was. Great way to give students experiences and develop their vocabulary to take them to the highest understand. A very easy way to understand and use the 5E's. I will definitely use in my dual language classroom. Very user friendly. I will take back to classroom.

I would like to use Comprendo as soon as possible in first grade. I got a lot of techniques to use Bloom's taxonomy on my daily teaching. New insights: ritmo, repetición, nuevo vocabulario, mimic, body representation. I will practice what I have learned, using imagination. Very good training. I like both software programs. They are practical, attractive (music, mimic) and easy to use. I would like a specific Science and Math training for 1st and 2nd graders.

You need to see this program. You'll use it every day! I learned how to get in and operate the program. New insight: andamiaje= scaffolding. I will let my students use this in centers. I will plan and use to explain lessons. Awesome! It's been a long time coming.

I was very pleased and feel very comfortable about using Sparkito, not only with my ELLs but also with my English speakers. It just makes learning more enjoyable.

This is a great brain research program. These methodologies would not only benefit our Hispanic Students group but also the A.A. Student group who we are nall struggling to reach. This would be a wonderful teaching tool for ALL PK-K classrooms to lay the foundation for learning in all content areas.
