MindTap for Standard Cosmetology PLUS has been developed for higher hour programs and those students who want to learn more advanced skills. This new MindTap provides more resources to schools and students that are actively embracing our digital solutions. Enhanced education is provided around the topics of razor cutting and advanced haircutting. Contextual relevancy is enhanced through new engaging assets and simulated activities (Haircutting Simulation). MindTap for Standard Cosmetology PLUS aims to take the student beyond the licensure exam and puts emphasis on being salon ready.
MindTap is a personalized teaching experience with assignments that guide students to analyze, apply, and improve thinking, allowing you to measure skills and outcomes with ease. Built upon authoritative Milady content, MindTap guides students through a single learning path where they interact with learning tools —readings, multimedia, activities and assessments—in a READ, WATCH and DO format. Instructors can personalize the experience by customizing Milady content or by adding their own content directly into the Learning Path, delivering a seamless student experience that aligns exactly with the curriculum being taught in the classroom.
Students receive access to an Interactive eBook, delivered in sections via the Learning Pathway, as well as provided in a comprehensive format with the simple click of a button. The ReadSpeak feature allows students to have the eBook read aloud to them either in sections chosen by the student or the book in its entirety.
The Learning Path guides students through the curriculum and is where they will spend the bulk of their time, viewing and interacting with the content in a variety of ways. It truly is an experience that lends itself to all different types of learning styles. Instructors can utilize the existing components of the Learning Path “as is” or they easily customize what their student has access to providing a One-of-a-Kind experience for their school(s).
MindTap provides a Social Media experience for students via an integrated Message Board. The ConnectYard feature allows for instructors to interact with students, and students to interact with each other, by posting discussion threads throughout the course and communicating with one another on various topics. The environment provides the best of both worlds, as it appeals to today’s student and their needs, while offering a controlled environment of sharing within the school/class only, eliminating the unnecessary existence of anyone outside of the school viewing comments on sites such as Facebook, Twitter, etc.
Students are able to create a Digital Portfolio of their work and will be guided to upload images throughout the program. As an added bonus, students will continue to have access to their portfolio upon graduating from school, allowing them to upload more images and leverage it for maximum exposure.
Instructors are able to Customize content to deliver a Learning Path to their students that mirrors the exact curriculum they are teaching in the classroom. It allows for greater flexibility on the instructor’s end, while being able to enhance the overall student experience with state-specific resources, in-house videos, personalized lesson plans, school/corporate specific technical training and systems, and so much more!
Instructors have access to a variety of Reporting Features that allow for them to track student engagement and progress, ensuring they have firsthand knowledge of What/How/If students are using the material provided.
MindTap offers a wealth of Content, Tools and Resources that are sure to make for an active and engaging learning environment for students, and an easy-to-use, immediately-relevant teaching environment for instructors.
