Experienced teachers know that, when it comes to student motivation, the cream always rises. Learners who have bought into the concept of school and have robust support at home are intrinsically motivated to learn and manage their day-to-day activities as students in a way that maximizes achievement. On the other hand, many students lack the organizational and metacognitive skills that help high achievers stay focused on work and primed for success.

What if we could create support for all learners that empowered them to think and work more like those super-organized, hyper-motivated students, though?

That’s exactly what Learning Relationship Management (LRM) technology does. LRMs create a structured, easy-to-use, web-based interface that extends the time and space for learning and provides the support students need to stay organized, motivated and plugged in.

LRMs help build equity for all kinds of learners through goal setting tools, curriculum and assignment management, teacher communication portals, document and artifact storage, and more. Through cloud hosting, an LRM solution can provide students and teachers with 24/7 access to everything they need in order to learn, assess or provide support.

Provide Support with Accountability
Learning Relationship Management provides students with the access and information they need to learn in the classroom, at home, or anywhere else with internet access. Through the LRM, students can view all active assignments or projects to double-check deadlines, consult rubrics and assignment sheets or ask teachers a clarifying question. This structure completely eliminates the challenges of students not writing things in assignment books or needing to identify and ask all their teacher questions during designated class time. By removing these logistical obstacles to success, the LRM invites more learners to the party to increase access points to success.

On the other hand, however, the information-on-demand capabilities of an LRM also eliminate many student excuses for not getting work done. When the information they need is available in an accessible, clearly documented way that allows them to ask clarifying questions with a single click, it’s actually possible to expect more from an accountability standpoint than ever before.

Transform Students into Learners
For a lot of students, school feels like something being done to them. It’s a place and a schedule where they feel robbed of agency and individuality in the name of standardized learning. However, the personalized experience of Learning Relationship Management helps students focus on their individualized education path and understand the active role they play in becoming college-and-career ready.

LRM technology stresses the “Relationships” between each individual student, their metacognitive understanding of themself, the content and skills that will empower them to have a successful life, and the human assets they can leverage to support that journey. In this way, the LRM transcends simple learning management to provide a personalized, highly structured support system that turns school into a powerful laboratory and testing ground for ideas, strategies, and skills that will build success and comfort in the “real world.” By focusing on each learner’s individual path to knowledge and growth, the LRM increases agency and authenticity, creating a learning experience that’s tailored to support and motivate each student.
