About Learning Bird |learningbird.com
Learning Bird is an innovative online learning tool for K-12 student success, enabling students to learn their own way. Its proprietary learning algorithm matches digital lessons from teachers to the local curriculum, textbooks and the individual learning profile of each student. Learning Bird’s new cross-curriculum alignment engine allows students grades 7-12 to access a wider range of lesson perspectives in order to find that “A-ha” moment. When a lesson helps students understand, Learning Bird’s algorithm learns more about how they learn and also shares revenue directly with the teachers who added the lesson. With Learning Bird, students drive their own success, struggle less and understand more.
