DETC logo
Distance Education and Training Council Image
"The Distance Education and Training Council is a non-profit [501 c 6] educational association located in Washington, D.C.

The Council was founded in 1926 to promote sound educational standards and ethical business practices within the correspondence field. The independent nine-member Accrediting Commission of the DETC was established in 1955; shortly thereafter it gained the approval of the U.S. Department of Education as the "nationally recognized accrediting agency" under terms of Public Law. The Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) also recognizes the Accrediting Commission.

The DETC Accrediting Commission defines, maintains, and promotes educational excellence in distance education institutions. The Commission is dedicated to fostering quality assurance, protection of the rights of the students and institutional self-improvement through voluntary accreditation via peer evaluation. DETC accreditation aims to instill public confidence in DETC institutions' missions, goals, performances, and resources through rigorous application and peer-developed accreditation standards." ... more
Distance Education.org logo
Image from Distance Education.org"The first website to offer online college tuition comparison all in one place! Distance-Education.org is one of the largest and most comprehensive online learning resources on the internet offering over 3500 degree programs listings, 1400 online courses, hundreds of online college reviews, Q&A, and the best online commentary and expert advice from our education advisors.

Based in New Braunfels, Texas, Indigo Education, LLC (www.distance-education.org) was founded in 2007 with the intent to provide an incredible platform of tools for finding the right online education for the online student. Our focus is on the student. The founders of Distance Education after years in the online education industry started to see certain needs that were not being addressed by other websites on the internet. One of these needs was a better level of transparency and ability to search and filter through the myriad of online universities choices out there. We thought that if we could provide a place that tied in many different types of useful data we would create a winning formula for one of the best online education websites on the internet. Combining up to date information on the online universities plus for the first time tuition information and costs, a knowledge exchange community to ask and answer questions, online college reviews, and expert commentary the student would be able to make better academic decisions to ensure their success in the online programs they undertake.

The choices for online education today are big, but even bigger is the diversity of the student population out there young and old. Whether it is someone on active duty in the military serving in Iraq, a student in Africa, a single mother, an upwardly mobile twenty something, or a fresh high school graduate, our desire was to provide a place for them to learn about going to school online in a unique way. From those ideas Distance-Education.org was born. The staff at Distance-Education.org welcome you to this website and hope that you will spend some time getting to know this website better.

Distance Education.org offers all the information you need to make an informed decision about distance education. Search through thousands of accredited online degree programs by level, subject or college tuition. Find career training in our online course catalog to meet all your continuing education needs." ... more

Thinking Maps logo
Our Mission
"Thinking Maps, Inc. is committed to improving the quality of teaching and learning through the effective implementation of Thinking Maps in schools and school districts around the world. Through quality training, materials and support services, we will equip learning communities with the tools necessary to become successful thinkers, problem solvers, decision makers, and ultimately, lifelong learners.

What are Thinking Maps & How Do They Work?
Thinking Maps, developed by Dr. David Hyerle, are visual teaching tools that foster and encourage lifelong learning. They are based on a simple yet profound insight: The one common instructional thread that binds together all teachers, from pre-kindergarten through postgraduate, is that they all teach the same thought processes.

Based on thorough and well-accepted academic study and brain research, the eight Thinking Map tools correspond with eight fundamental thinking processes. More than simple task-specific graphic organizers, our tools can be utilized individually or in various combinations to form a Common Visual Language for students and teachers at all grade levels, in all subjects." ... more
PARI logo
PARI image"Learning does not end at the classroom door. All children can become successful learners when their efforts are supported by the school, home, and community environments. Parent Academic Resources Incorporated (PARI) believes that out of these three support structures, the parent remains a child's most important teacher. To this end PARI, a 501(c)(3) educational corporation, is committed to helping parents, parent organizations, schools, and communities promote effective learning in the home.

Studies have been able to correlate parental support of schoolwork at home with improved student achievement. Yet, it has also been shown that parents tend to become less involved with their child's schooling after the elementary years. Busy schedules, a child's growing sense of independence, and a parent's comfort level with increasingly complex schoolwork, are all impediments to effective parent involvement in middle school and high school. PARI aims to empower parents during their children's adolescent years, increase parent involvement, and ultimately foster high levels of student learning.

Mission Statement
Parent Academic Resources Incorporated promotes the growth of effective parent involvement in the middle school and high school years through the creation and dissemination of print and training resources for parents. Through academic-specific support, and guidance on adolescent development, parents will use the resources to build confidence in their ability to help with school and schoolwork." ... more
AIMS logo
AIMS image"AIMS is a non-profit foundation dedicated to helping teachers give students a solid conceptual understanding of math and science

In 1981, 80 elementary and middle school teachers who shared the dream of giving students a strong hands-on foundation in math and science came together at Fresno Pacific and wrote the first AIMS’ activity books. Teachers loved them! Students learned more, learned in greater depth, and enjoyed learning. The word spread, and soon teachers across the nation were using AIMS to engage their students in hands-on learning.

Today, with pacing guides to follow and testing schedules to meet, teachers have less freedom to take advantage of teachable moments. Yet hands-on experiences are needed more than ever! So AIMS remains dedicated to producing math and science materials that will engage students and build conceptual understanding.

As a non-profit foundation, we are motivated by a passion for teaching and learning, not by profit. Our home is still on the campus of Fresno Pacific University. We are committed to doing what’s best for students, and we never tire of helping them experience the joy of learning." ... more

TouchMath logo
TouchMath"You can use the TouchMath program to give young children a head start, supplement a grade-level curriculum (pre-K–3), provide enrichment activities and reinforcement, and achieve the best possible outcomes for students with special needs. TouchMath is an intuitive process, designed by and for young learners.

The secret to TouchMath is simple. In fact, it can be summed up in one word: TouchPoints.
Each numeral from 1 through 9 has TouchPoints corresponding to the digit's value.

- Numerals 1 through 5 have single TouchPoints
- Numerals 6 through 9 have double TouchPoints
- As students count the TouchPoints, they associate numerals with real values. They learn that a numeral (3, for instance) is not just a squiggle on a page. It represents a quantity such as three apples, three ladybugs, three buttons or three TouchPoints.

Touching/Counting Patterns
Students count aloud as they touch the single TouchPoints once and double TouchPoints twice. This multisensory approach engages students on auditory, visual and tactile/kinesthetic levels.

To ensure that students arrive at the right answer, it is important that they touch the TouchPoints in the correct Touching/Counting Pattern for each numeral." ... more

The Angelicum AcademyThe Angelicum Academy"THE ANGELICUM ACADEMY HOMESCHOOL PROGRAM is a nursery-12th grade curriculum for home education. It is complete – including all subjects, books, guides and tests needed, for all grades. Optional services for enrolled students include grading, transcript maintenance, online literature discussion classes and the finest online resources (such as Encyclopaedia Britannica for students). Our Great Books Program may be taken for high school, college credit, or both.

THE ANGELICUM ACADEMY & HOMESCHOOL PROGRAM is easy to follow. Because it is complete, it is a one-stop home education provider. The 12 courses (subjects) allow parents to offer their children more options than any private school offers. Because it is flexible it allows parents to select only those courses they wish, when they wish, and to take as long (or as little) as they wish to complete a course. Most of our students are doing six or seven subjects, in two or three different grade levels – they have excelled in some, taken more time in others – this is a common sense approach to education, not a one-pace-fits-all approach to unique human beings.

We offer many courses. This is because some parents want to emphasize, for example, art instead of music, or science instead of philosophy, etc. That is a parental decision. But we do not recommend that any student take more than six or seven subjects at any one time. If one compares costs for any six of our courses with other homeschool programs, one will find that the Angelicum Homeschool Program is either less expensive or comparable in cost, and, we believe, superior in content and quality. We strive to offer only the very best educational books and materials, including particularly, the great classics of Western civilization." ... more
The Center for Innovation in Education logo
The Center for Innovation in Education"The Center for Innovation in Education is the leading provider of mathematics inservice and training in the country. Our workshops are open to teachers, administrators, paraprofessionals, and parents. Over 300,000 people have participated in our workshops.

The Center for Innovation in Education, a nonprofit organization, was co-founded in 1975 by two classroom teachers, Mary and Bob Baratta-Lorton. They shared a philosophy based upon the belief that all children can learn and that every child matters. Their commitment was to find ways that helped teach the way children learn.

A page of abstract symbols, no matter how carefully designed or simplified, cannot involve the student's sense in the way real materials can. Symbols are not the concept. They are only a representation of the concept and as such are abstractions describing something which is not visible to the student. Real materials can be used by the child to assist their understanding of the concept which lie behind the symbols. Children construct meaning and understand concepts better through the use of manipulatives." ... more

Why Love 2 Learn
Love 2 Learn logo"The editor and review board of Favorite Resources for Catholic Homeschoolers are experienced Catholic homeschoolers who wish to provide assistance to other parents and teachers by offering:

- free and well-organized information about available educational resources
- detailed information regarding a book's contents in order to help others make more informed purchasing decisions
- information about issues of importance to Catholics as they come up in educational materials

Our aim is to provide objective and thorough information about educational materials from a solid Catholic perspective. Rather than simply judging materials for you, we try to provide enough information to allow you to make those decisions for yourself - particularly in cases where materials provide no problems with regard to the Faith, but will bring up other questions involving learning styles, maturity level, and other issues that matter to parents like you. For this reason, when reviewing books, we try to include details about everything that Catholic parents would want to know - both good and bad. "
