A third pilot site has signed up with Alchemy, the recently launched edtech startup that flips classrooms by creating digital lesson binders for students to interact with classroom material outside of the classroom.
Students at the new Betamore Academy will now be able to use Alchemy’s SmartBinder to work on course material when they’re not in class during the week.
As Technically Baltimore reported, Betamore Academy is a new series of courses now underway at Federal Hill-based incubator and coworking space Betamore. Over 10 weeks, beginning programmers and budding startup owners are taking courses in mobile, front-end and back-end development and digital marketing. Classes are three hours per day, two days a week.
Alchemy’s SmartBinder is designed for K-12 students, and is being piloted by two K-12 schools, whereas Academy students are adults changing careers to trying something entirely new.
“We looked into several solutions for our online materials, but SmartBinder was the best fit,” said Mike Passaro, director of education at Betamore.
