Researchers are finding that the results from computer-based systems using adaptive technology approximate those from human tutoring, which is why savvy teachers are now offering technology-enabled “personal tutors” – or Intelligent Adaptive Learning technology to their students.
The Intelligent adaptive learning guides the learning experience, and adjusts path and pace to stay within the child’s zone of optimized learning to accelerate understanding and critical thinking. The system also provides formative and summative data to the student’s teacher to enable more personalized instruction.
What makes this type of adaptive learning technology so intelligent?
To accelerate student learning, DreamBox combines three essential elements: a rigorous curriculum, motivating learning environments, and its truly intelligent and adaptive engine.
With the power to deliver millions of individualized learning paths, DreamBox can tailor every math lesson to meet a student’s unique needs in their optimal learning zone. Its Pre-K to Grade 5 math curriculum effectively teaches the Common Core State Standards, and provides comprehensive reporting tools for teachers and administrators that track student proficiency and progress against the CCSS, TEKS, SOL, WNCP and Ontario Curriculum.
DreamBox can adapt the level of difficulty, scaffolding, sequencing, and the number of hints, the pacing—all in real-time—allowing students of all levels to progress at a pace that suits them. Learning happens within two immersive, fun environments (primary and intermediate) that personalize learning with games and themes that turn lessons into adventures. In addition, students show their work with unique virtual manipulatives, encouraging them to explain, discuss, and defend their mathematical thinking.
