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 examined 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. 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
This webinar is designed for all educators interested in adaptive learning, including superintendents, district administrators, curriculum directors, and classroom teachers.
