I’m thrilled to share that Age of Learning has today won three coveted Stevie Awards for our ABCmouse Mastering Math app: Best PreK / Early Childhood Learning Solution, Best Game-based Curriculum Solution, and Best Mathematics Instructional Solution. In January, Mastering Math was named Best Educational App in the Best Mobile App Awards.
Mastering Math is an innovative, game-based adaptive early learning app (available for Apple/iOS and Android mobile devices) that helps preschool through kindergarten children build a strong understanding of the most fundamental math concepts: number sequences, numeral recognition, and counting objects. Having that foundation is a key requirement for success in kindergarten and beyond. The app uses appealing characters and personalized learning pathways to help children achieve mastery through practice.
The app leverages the Personalized Mastery Learning System developed by Age of Learning. This adaptive learning platform recommends and customizes learning games to deliver an individualized learning path and personalized education to every child. The app actively adapts in real time to a child’s existing knowledge, filling in gaps in understanding and teaching new material as the child demonstrates they are ready for more advanced learning activities. Using data from a child’s interaction, the system adapts the sequence of activities presented, and even adapts within each activity, to optimize each child’s learning experience and ultimately help all children achieve math mastery.
Current ABCmouse members can use the Mastering Math app completely free just by logging in. If you are not yet a member, you can subscribe through this app to begin your family’s ABCmouse learning adventure.
Congratulations to everyone on the Mastering Math team at Age of Learning!
I’m pleased to announce that Age of Learning recently launched our new Mastering the Alphabet mobile app, which is now available to all ABCmouse members via the Apple App Store and on Google Play!
Mastering the Alphabet is the second mobile app built on our Personalized Mastery Learning System, which creates an individualized learning path for every child. This is our first mastery app for language and literacy, and the first to offer offline access.
Mastering the Alphabet adapts which letters are presented to a child by balancing what he or she already knows and needs to learn with practice. The game further personalizes the learning experience by prioritizing the letters of the child’s name and by allowing children to decorate their letter blocks with custom art. With each demonstration of letter mastery, these letter blocks are brought to life with delightful animations that set the stage for reading success!
This new app is the seventh in our Constellation app series, following ABCmouse Mathematics and Science animations. You can learn more about the first six apps by reading this blog post on AgeofLearning.com.
Mastering the Alphabet is available to all ABCmouse subscribers at no additional charge; download the version that’s right for you at the Apple App Store or Google Play
We have an amazing line-up of panelists and guests coming to Age of Learning headquarters for this edtech meetup. Learn more below. Hope you can make it.
I am pleased to announce Age of Learning’s latest education access initiative here on my blog.
More than one million children from birth to age 8 currently live in public housing in the U.S. These children typically have less access to quality education and learning resources, resulting in an achievement gap that begins when they enter kindergarten unprepared to learn and widens as they progress to 3rd grade. Research shows that more than 80 percent of children from low-income families are not proficient readers by the end of 3rd grade. To help address this gap, Age of Learning recently joined the Leadership Cohort of the Book-Rich Environments Initiative.
