This program was developed by high school educators because they found vaping was hurting the health and education of their students. Students were placed in detentions or suspended from school because of the rampant use of electronic cigarettes. While students were being disciplined out of the classroom, a lot of school was being missed. This program was designed to keep the students in the classroom while providing schools with a resource to help educate students about the negative health effects of using these addictive devices.
All ActionEducate courses, including VapeEducate, DiversityEducate, and AllyEducate, are evidence-based. The online instructional approach engages students by incorporating pre-tests, mini-assessments, post-tests, and critical thinking short-essay prompts, allowing students to assimilate course information. All courses are divided into units or chapters. Each chapter requires students to achieve an 80% mastery level to advance to the next chapter or unit. Students not achieving an 80% passage rate on each assessment must review the unit to gain the necessary skills to attain mastery.
In addition to the pre-and post-assessments, mini-quizzes, and essay prompts, the course also incorporates an evidence-based read-aloud strategy to further understanding using an auditory option.
Over 50,000 people throughout the world have completed our courses. We are proud to say that all 50,000 students have attained at least an 80% passage rate on each course unit.
There are several ways this program can be used:
We purposely designed the program so that students cannot speed through the program. Each slide has a time of 30 seconds before it allows the student to move on. In addition, there are mini quizzes between slides in each unit that they must complete in order to eventually reach the cumulative final unit test. Students are required to achieve a minimum score of 80% to move on to the next unit.
