The Silicon Review
No longer was knowledge something that only the rich and powerful had access to; the rest of us could also grab a book and digest the nuggets of wisdom those before us had acquired. Digital learning is having a similar effect on the way we are able to consume and share information. It allows students to access more information, but it also enables them to cater it specifically to their individual needs. It also saves time and money. Students no longer have to buy or rent large volumes of textbooks just to use about 30% of them before the information is no longer relevant. The digital learning landscape has also made it possible for educators to adapt to different situations and share information rapidly. This means that through things like a pandemic, there’s no need to cease education services. This kind of platform creates a level playing field for each student and enhances their chances of success.
DreamBox Learning is one such company that provides a deeply personalized learning experience that guides and engages students at all levels with a combination of a rigorous K-8 math and reading curriculum and motivating learning environments that work seamlessly with the pioneering Intelligent Adaptive technology. Its programs provide feedback and scaffolding in the moment of learning and over time. Students develop the strategies, critical thinking skills, deep understanding, and reasoning abilities they need to be successful in life and career.
