As many educators and school administrators are navigating through this pandemic period finding resourceful information, we wanted to give you our best tips on how you can continue your language curriculum remotely using Rosetta Stone Foundations.
Rosetta Stone Foundations can be used from home as part of a remote learning implementation during extended school closures or other special circumstances. Here are four key tips about program features to help inform educator contingency planning and support the successful continuity of student learning.
Tip #1 Create a Plan
Students can log into Rosetta Stone Foundations from home with an internet connection.
We recommend creating a plan for how students will log in at home and sharing that plan with parents or guardians. Teachers should share the Quick Start Guide for Accessing the Rosetta Stone program from home with families. This guide provides a space to include each students’ username, password, and log-in URL, as well as instructions for logging into both desktop and mobile versions of the Foundations program. If needed, here’s access to the Quick Start Guide in Spanish.
For schools utilizing Clever, students can also access the Foundations Learn Languages app by following the instructions in this guide here.
Be sure students are able to set up their headsets at home with this Headset Set Up Guide. However, if they are in a quiet space, most can successfully use Foundations with the speaker and microphone available on their device, without a headset.
The final step of your plan is determining how much time you expect your learners to work in Rosetta Stone Foundations. We suggest 3-5 times a week, for 15-30 minute sessions as best practice. Be sure that both learners and parents know your time expectations.
Tip #2 Provide Offline Resources
Students can continue learning offline using printed program resources. This option can be especially helpful in instances where supported devices are not available at home. Rosetta Stone Foundations offline instructional resources that can be printed ahead of time and sent home for extended practice and review.
