As the Curriculum Director for DreamBox Learning (our Intelligent Adaptive Learning platform was highlighted in the Fraser Institute report), I’m proud of the partnership we have with classroom teachers and administrators to support the success and learning of all students. While students engage with their teachers and peers in math classes on a daily basis, they can also have a uniquely personalized math learning experience when using DreamBox for an hour or so each week.
We believe the “interactive” component of adaptive software is a critical one because it means students must engage with manipulatives and digital tools in new ways that often aren’t possible without technology. Students use these tools strategically so they are “thinking and doing” rather than “sitting and getting.” Our adaptive engine makes appropriate recommendations for even the youngest of students because our pedagogical approach and engaging math lessons ensure students deeply understand mathematics and how to think independently.
