BELLEVUE, WA, Sept 9, 2009 — DreamBox Learning, an educational software company, today announced an updated version of its award-winning DreamBox Learning K-2 Math Classroom with new classroom features that will improve a teacher’s insight into student progress through the product’s adaptive math content. DreamBox Learning K-2 Math is an effective web-based math learning product that provides differentiated instruction, is built on a standards-based mathematics curriculum, and is wrapped in a fun, adventure-style game.
The latest version of DreamBox Learning K-2 Math Classroom includes a broader set of classroom management tools, so teachers can:
“Our teachers and students really like using DreamBox Learning K-2 Math Classroom because of its self-paced curriculum, engaging play, and, most importantly, the difference it is making in our students’ math achievement,” said David Petett, Principal of Campbellsville Elementary School in Kentucky. “We plan on using DreamBox with all of our K-2 students as well as an intervention tool with our 3rd and 4th grade students, particularly since the new management tools make it easier for our teachers to gain insights into each student’s knowledge and hone in on the areas that still need work for a specific grade level.”
“Our customers are validating that effective, engaging technology in the classroom makes a huge, positive impact on both students and teachers,” said Lou Gray, Co-Founder and CEO of DreamBox Learning. “With our latest updates, DreamBox Learning K-2 Math Classroom will continue to supply the differentiated lessons that help both the advanced and struggling student thrive, allowing teachers to quickly identify who may need a little extra help or a bit more of a challenge. DreamBox Learning is the next-generation teacher’s aide.”
DreamBox Learning K-2 Math is the adaptive product that supports what young students learn in the classroom by developing and reinforcing foundational math concepts through effective, individualized instruction while simultaneously being fun and engaging. DreamBox Learning K-2 Math Classroom is the school version of the product.
Unlike other kids’ math learning products, the underlying curriculum of DreamBox Learning K-2 Math is based on standards set by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and the program presents in-depth math lessons that develop computational fluency, conceptual understanding, and problem-solving ability. As the child embarks on his/her online math adventure, DreamBox Learning’s patented GuideRight™ technology analyzes a student’s individual responses and dynamically customizes the content and sequence for each child — just as a great teacher would adapt a lesson to adjust to students who learn in different ways. Kids are able to explore well over a million individual learning paths throughout their math adventures.
DreamBox Learning K-2 Math has been awarded many of the industry’s highest honors, including the AEP 2009 Golden Lamp, the AEP 2009 Distinguished Achievement Award, and Children’s Technology Workshop Editor’s Choice.
