The DreamBox Learning adaptive learning platform enables the best methods and lessons of effective classroom teachers to help every student excel. DreamBox technology answers the question, “what’s the right next lesson for this student”, to provide a learning experience based on:
This experience is based on the following patented technologies.
Platform infrastructure. We’ve built our platform to be a large scale, extensible web service that can support a wide variety of curricula (e.g., K-12 math, literacy, science, chemistry, etc.), high traffic, world-wide usage, and multivariate data analysis. DreamBox will continue to drive platform innovation by building more applications and extending its reach.
GuideRight™. An heuristics engine for continuous assessments and adaptations, this technology provides for individualized placement so that every student is continually in their optimal learning zone. More importantly, integrated assessment and instruction, with a powerful, proprietary sequencing engine, means that there are millions of possible paths through our robust curriculum.
LessonScript™. LessonScript™ is an authoring environment for scalable lesson development. Instead of having to rely on the traditional sequential software development model, our engineers have created a lesson authoring environment full of interactive and teacher-designed virtual tools so that our academic team (most of whom are National Board Certified Teachers) can build and refine lessons in real time. This also means that LessonScript can support 3rd party content development.
Dynamic and “skinnable” lesson architecture. DreamBox developed a flexible overlay for substituting creative assets (graphics and audio) and language so DreamBox-enabled content can be presented with different themes (e.g. pirates or neighborhood pets) to appeal to different students. It also allows easy localization to new languages.
Teacher and Parent Dashboards. Our online dashboards provide detailed academic progress reports, giving teachers, administrators, and parents insight into concept-level comprehension, progress through the curriculum, and DreamBox effectiveness.
