DreamBox Learning® Launches Lesson Highlights to Equip Educators with Transformative Insight into Student Problem-Solving

BELLEVUE, Wash. — April 6, 2022 —  DreamBox Learning, Inc. (“DreamBox”), the leading education technology provider and pioneer of intelligent adaptive learning, announced today the launch of Lesson Highlights, a first-to-market data analytics feature that provides an unprecedented level of transparency into how students are problem-solving, thinking critically and creatively, and responding to challenges. Teachers can use Lesson Highlights to retroactively see where students may be experiencing productive struggle and then offer easy-to-implement targeted support for individuals and groups of students.  

Available for the 2022-23 school year, Lesson Highlights provides a roadmap on how students interact with DreamBox lessons. Educators can then use this roadmap to talk through students’ thought processes and problem-solving strategies, while watching the playback side-by-side. This additional insight also enables educators and administrators to easily track, predict, and project student growth, depth of understanding, fluency, and skills, regardless of whether the student is in class or at home. This is all possible through DreamBox’s patented intelligent adaptive learning technology, which generates insights from high-quality and pedagogy-driven information about each student’s learning.  

“Lesson Highlights is another example of our commitment to developing solutions that are easy to use and provide educators with the timely actionable insights they need to efficiently personalize their instructional strategies and save them precious time,” said Lakshmi Nidamarthi, Chief Product Officer at DreamBox Learning. “This is transformative technology that essentially allows educators to look ‘over the shoulders’ of students and assess, on their own time, how students worked on a lesson just a few minutes ago rather than relying on data from an assessment taken months ago.” …Read More
