Classroom + Distance Learning: At the center of Connected Learning is Ignite by Hatch™, a digital learning platform that provides quality, research-based experiences that enable continuous learning within and beyond the classroom.
Ignite by Hatch is a digital learning platform offering 203 play-based curricular experiences that engage, instruct, and assess children in 7 domains of development. Ignite responds to and builds on the skills of each child, while keeping teachers informed of their progress. Used in Pre-K classrooms across the country, Ignite has been vetted by industry experts and endorsed by teachers and other educational professionals to help children achieve kindergarten readiness goals.
The Ignite by Hatch app can be loaded on nearly any device with a touch screen, making it ideal for home and classroom use. View compatible devices here.
Psstt… if your classroom doesn’t have touchscreen technology, check out Hatch devices made especially for early learners to ensure digital equity.
Ignite by Hatch is based on extensive research. Children may call them “games,” but the 203 learning experiences within Ignite are sophisticated tools covering 7 domains of learning
This whole-child focus helps children build essential skills even beyond academics. They build confidence as learners and have a great time doing it!
The Ignite platform is adaptable, responding to and building on the skills of each child, to ensure mastery of skills before progressing.
Teachers are provided real-time data on each child’s progress, so they can see if and where a child is struggling. They can also access teacher-led curricular experiences to address needs on an individual or small-group basis. This facilitates lesson-planning and helps ensure children receive the instruction they need to meet kindergarten readiness goals.
Children are more likely to succeed when parents are involved in their learning. If a child is using Ignite at school, parents can follow progress , see images of work created, and access activities they can do at home—all within the parent dashboard.
Since a child’s progress playing Ignite at home will be shared with his or her teacher, learning can continue even when illness or weather conditions keep children out of school!
Programs function best when children, teachers, parents, and administrators are fully engaged with one another. That’s why we’ve created a series of on-demand webinars for educators, including:
