TCEA Preview: From Core Curriculum and Adaptive Learning, To Intervention and ESL, And Everything In Between, Edgenuity Stays On The Cutting Edge Of EdTech
If there’s one thing educators know it’s that no two schools or school districts are exactly alike. That’s because every student is uniquely different. While there may be similarities, and in some cases a lot of them, each student, teacher, school and district is different. That’s one thing Edgenuity understands, their company is built by educators, for educators that understand the unique demands of teachers, administrators, students, parents and districts.
Edgenuity knew from the beginning, 20 years ago, that one size fits all solutions for K-12 education just wouldn’t work. Over the last 20 years they’ve created a variety of solutions including:
- Core Curriculum
- Credit Recovery
- Test Readiness
- Virtual Learning
- Personalized Learning
- Summer School
- ESL & Special Education
Every one of Edgenuity’s products is adaptable to each classroom it’s going into. Everything is built on the approach that learning is not one size fits all. That’s also the ethos behind Edgenuity’s latest product UpSmart.
UpSmart is an easy to use classroom tool for teachers featuring an adaptive learning engine. Teachers teach a lesson, then assign that specific topic in UpSmart. UpSmart’s data enables teachers to quickly identify which students “get it” and which students need a little extra help. UpSmart is able to do this on an individualized basis and because of it’s adaptive learning engine, it automatically allows the students who do “get it” to move ahead, while it gives those students that need a little extra help, a little extra help.
Adaptive learning is all the rage these days. It uses a combination of machine learning and artificial intelligence to determine where students are in the material and if they are keeping up. When they aren’t, it reinforces learning automatically. Adaptive learning has had great success in K-12, Higher Ed and even work force learning.
