Lesson Snap

Make instructional delivery easy.

New programs are often abandoned if first attempts take too much time to prepare or do not go as expected. Similarly, some programs are never adopted because of the perceived amount of upfront time a teacher would need to invest to prepare properly.

Lesson Snap is a web-based curriculum platform for teachers to present lessons in a simple, straightforward way from the first day with fidelity.

Teachers love Lesson Snap?s user-friendly qualities:

  • Facilitated engagement and interaction with students, rather than following a teacher guide
  • Class guidance through a lesson with easy-to-follow screens
  • Greatly reduced planning hours
  • Elimination of the extra step of generating additional resources for instructional delivery

Organizations choose Lesson Snap for the following reasons:

  • Deliver new curricula or digitize existing curricula to scale use and ensure fidelity
  • Demonstrate commitment to instruction that reinforces 21st century skills
  • Monitor and evaluate implementation through an extensive data system

Lesson Snap launched in August 2016 and is currently used in 49 school districts and 4 private organizations.
