- Last week inland South African schools opened up as the 2023 academic year begins in earnest.
- As we have seen in recent years, there is a role for technology to play, especially in assisting learners who may be struggling.
- To that end, ADvTECH has announced that a new customised learning path platform will be rolled out at its schools this month.
If you have a young child, you are likely preparing them for the upcoming academic year, with inland schools already starting up last week. As it readies its own learners, ADvTECH has announced that it will be rolling out a first for the country in the form of a personalised and locally developed platforms for its schools across SA.
The platform in question is called ADvLEARN, which was developed thanks to a partnership with MathU, which specialises in AI-enabled solutions and tools for teachers.
“ADvLEARN is a customised platform for ADvTECH Schools that provides personalised learning paths using adaptive technology to deliver data-driven insights and learning analytics. Students will therefore have a unique learning experience while constantly improving their understanding in core areas,” explained ADvTECH in a press release sent to Hypertext.
“We are very excited to have partnered with MathU to bring this groundbreaking digital learning platform to our Grade 7 to 12 students, a move which will further cement our reputation as a leader in education in the country, in line with our vision to stay at the forefront of global technological innovation and emerging best practices,” added Desiree Hugo, Academic head at ADvTECH’s Schools Division.
The organisation also notes that it will initially use ADvLEARN for learning in Mathematics (Grade 7 to 12), Physical Sciences (Grade 10 to 12) and Mathematical Literacy (Grade 10 to 12).
“In addition to enhancing student learning, ADvLEARN will also give teachers the ability to instantly allocate relevant student work and homework to student devices, immediately access student performance and achievement data, as well as easily view and identify concepts needing reteaching and review,” noted Hugo.
“We are truly excited about taking education another step into the future in 2023, and look forward to seeing how this strategic partnership cements and accelerates STEM learning for our students,” she concluded.
