Triumph Learning’s Waggle Surpasses 5 Million Personalized Recommendations
Personalized smart practice solution reaches milestone, showcased at ISTE
NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) June 29, 2015
Triumph Learning, producer of critically acclaimed K-12 curriculum and interactive digital tools, announces at the 2015 ISTE Conference and Expo that Waggle has surpassed 5 million personalized student recommendations. The online learning platform that generates a smart practice environment to help students in grades 3-8 build skills and prepare for assessments, recommends what a student should study next, creating a personalized learning path.
“Waggle’s personalized recommendations provide an online, differentiated instructional tool set,” said Dr. Rhonda Richetta, principal at City Springs Elementary/Middle School in Baltimore, Maryland. “The program not only gives our students freedom of learning at their own pace, but also gives us a real-time snapshot of students’ performance so we can pinpoint strengths and weaknesses moving forward.”
Waggle integrates Knewton adaptive learning technology, which analyzes what students know and how they learn best to provide students with tailored recommendations for what to study next. Through custom feedback and tailored instruction, Waggle supports the needs of each individual student, whether they are on-level, struggling or excelling, to help them practice intelligently for assessments. Instructions and hints are continuously customized to help students develop proficiency and comfort with assigned skills.
“Knewton helps ensure every student using Waggle gets a more personal learning experience,” said Jose Ferreira, founder and CEO of Knewton. “We are excited to reach this milestone with Triumph Learning, and to continue working with them to help more students across the country benefit from more tailored learning materials.”
With content in English language arts and mathematics aligned to the state standards and Common Core State Standards, Waggle champions productive struggle by creating a safe and engaging environment for students. The platform’s intuitive reporting gives teachers the support they need in planning, predicting and adjusting instruction for each student. Plain language insights help educators identify students who are struggling or excelling in certain content areas and take immediate steps to remediate or accelerate as necessary.
“Waggle meets a student where they are and stretches them out of their comfort zone just enough,” said Aoife Dempsey, chief technology officer at Triumph Learning and developer of Waggle. “Reaching 5 million personalized recommendations means that students are spending time and effort to move along their personalized pathways to conquer skills and goals.”
