Webinar: The New Identity of Adaptive Math
October 17, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm UTC+0
Ten years ago there were no educational products available for K-12 Math that were truly adaptive. Now just about everyone claims to be adaptive in some way. But what does it mean to be “adaptive”? How do these products work? And how do you evaluate which best fits your needs?
In this webinar, Nigel Green will examine the definitions for adaptive learning that are being proposed for use across the online learning community, and will review many of the technologies and approaches often used. Join us for a free webinar with edWeb and gain a better understanding of:
- The many types of adaptation available
- How different student actions and behaviors can inform an adaptive engine
- How adaptive learning programs can be integrated into their blended learning models
- Some of the possible futures of adaptive learning
Nigel will field questions from attendees during this live, interactive session. This webinar is designed for all educators interested in adaptive learning, including superintendents, district administrators, curriculum directors, and classroom teachers.
