We are providers of online curriculum and professional development through the Seedlesson platform.
May 2014 Release
Our platform helps educators create and implement curriculum optimized for CCSS. Development began in Fall 2012 with classroom-based feedback from students and teachers, along with guidance from educational advisors.
Seed Lesson believes technology access should not be limited to a specific device. Software is provided online through any laptop, tablet or mobile web browser. A simple user interface enables users to easily develop rich curriculum with integrated assessments.
August 2014 Release
The contributions of the Filipino American Farm Labor movement improved working conditions throughout California and engaged migrant farm workers in the political process. The Agricultural Workers Organizing Committee (AWOC) was founded by Filipino American labor leaders and became a model for political action.
The two one-week modules engage students with authentic photos and media from the early Farm Worker Movement that reached mainstream America in the 1960's. Our curriculum highlights pivotal events in Filipino migration, AWOC history, Filipino American labor leaders and their contributions that still influence current day legislation. Lesson exercises include graphic organizers, transcribed oral accounts from Filipino laborers and activists, process guides, analysis of historical claims, vocabulary, reflective writing prompts, ongoing assessments, etc. The unit culminates with a comprehensive online assessment.
As part of our commitment to delivering student-centered solutions, we have implemented a technology pilot program at East Palo Alto Academy. We are providing students with devices of their choice, and providing self-directed education resources. Students also provide feedback on usability to ensure our software prioritzes their needs and meets an optimal balance of personal and technological interaction.
