Who are we?
Elephango is the industry leader in research-based homeschool curriculum resources. A part of the Edovate Learning Corp family, Elephango is a rich online educational resource center that is the perfect curriculum companion for any K-12 student or school.
Developed specifically for at-home learning, every Elephango lesson speaks directly to the student, providing media-rich instruction, interactive activities, and project-based assignments designed to challenge students to take initiative, drive their own learning, experiment, get creative, and connect learning to life.
What Sets Elephango Apart from the Rest?
Our research-based, neuroscience approach to learning means that every resource is designed to spark curiosity, deepen understanding, and build confidence. Just what every learner needs.
With knowledge and information at their fingertips, today’s students also need an education system that moves beyond a simple skill-and-drill instructional approach. Instead, they should be developing 21st century skills that are not restricted to cognition alone, but rather the interdependencies of cognitive, social, and emotional development.
This is the strength of Elephango. As students navigate skills such as reading, writing, and arithmetic, each lesson also emphasizes problem solving, interpersonal skills, teamwork, and critical thinking and encourages the essential 4 C’s in 21st century skills: Creativity, Critical Thinking, Communication, and Collaboration.
Additionally, our built-in personalization tools allow teachers, parents, and students to select lessons that fit not only the student’s learning needs but that also appeal to their personality, interests, and academic level. It’s tailor-made learning at its best.
The Story Behind the Name
There are many reasons why we chose the name Elephango. For one, elephants have the largest brain of all land mammals, and they’re well-known for their ability to remember.
Elephants have shown they remember voices (auditory) and even know when a voice is correlated with both a positive and negative experience. Elephants also communicate with touch, therefore making them at least partially kinesthetic. And elephants possess exceptional visual memories, to the point where they can remember places they’ve only visited once.
Add it all up, and you can see how an elephant can be used to illustrate all three primary learning styles Elephango emphasizes--auditory, visual, and kinesthetic.
We help prepare learners for a future that cannot yet be defined. They must be ready for change, willing to learn, and able to think critically. Elephango is designed to create lifelong learners who are ready for that rapidly changing future.
