Ooka Island offers an Educator Trial that includes the first two levels of the program (out of 24), which ends up being over 3 hours of learning content for each student with no strings attached. It provides you with more learning data to draw upon as you see how Ooka Island works for different students.
Educators can sign up to 40 students for this trial. This number acknowledges the realities of the classroom, whether you are a primary teacher, a resource teacher, a literacy coach or leading an after-school program.
This trial allows you to fully integrate the program into your classroom, however, you choose to implement it. Some ways that educators love to use Ooka Island include a literacy station, guided reading group, or even a ‘work on when you’re done your other work’ activity.’ These ideas allow you to rotate your class through the program even with a small set of iPads or tablets.
