SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(Adaptive Curriculum (AC), a web-based concept mastery solution that improves student achievement in math and science via its real-world active learning approach, has been selected as a key content provider for Alleyoop, the online college prep tutoring site created in conjunction with Pearson (NYSE:PSO), the global education company.)--
“Through our deep conceptual learning solutions, Alleyoop has added an important element to its mix of select educational tools: a solution that helps students develop the critical thinking and problem solving skills they will need to be successful in college and beyond”
According to Patrick Supanc, founder and president of Alleyoop, “Adaptive Curriculum’s innovative approach to learning and vision for improving science education is a perfect fit for Alleyoop. We are combining Adaptive Curriculum’s top-notch science activities with the personalized recommendations and game-based engagement of Alleyoop. Together we are on a mission to maximize teen success in science and further their interest in STEM pathways to college and high-demand careers.”
With studies indicating that a strong foundation in math and science helps students do better in college, Alleyoop was created to help teens better understand and master the math and science content required for college readiness. The Alleyoop approach combines three major elements; tailored guidance, rich educational content, and game dynamics.
Designed for students in grades six-12, Adaptive Curriculum engages digital-age learners by integrating 3-D models, cutting-edge graphics and interactive simulations into active, standards-based learning. Unlike textbooks or drill-and-practice programs, Adaptive Curriculum’s digital, problem-solving experiences motivate learners to explore, make hypotheses, manipulate items and see the impact of their decisions, thus developing and deepening their conceptual understanding.
According to Jim Bowler, CEO of Adaptive Curriculum, the partnership with Alleyoop and Pearson is a win-win for the companies as well as students. “Through our deep conceptual learning solutions, Alleyoop has added an important element to its mix of select educational tools: a solution that helps students develop the critical thinking and problem solving skills they will need to be successful in college and beyond,” he said. “For us, the partnership is a natural next step in our effort to expand outside the school walls. Through Alleyoop, and future Adaptive Curriculum at-home solutions, we are providing students access to the best educational tools no matter where they are -- at school, at home, at the local library, anywhere students have access to an Internet connection.”
