From TechCrunch: As the educational landscape changes, it is giving birth to a whole new generation of learning software and learning software companies. In part, this change is being driven by the introduction of “adaptive” technologies, which, writ large, seek to personalize the learning process for each student. By personalizing the education experience, these new platforms hope to improve student outcomes, allowing each student to learn at his or her own pace and providing a much-needed helping hand for teachers who find themselves managing a classroom full of students at very different points in their learning paths. Startups like NoRedInk have created adaptive learning tools to help students improve their grammar and writing skills. Today, another startup is officially entering the adaptive learning space, but, like a foil to NoRedInk, it’s tackling the mathematical side of education.
