We are pleased to offer this notification concerning the Math Adaptive Learning Pilots Grant. The Oregon STEM Council in collaboration with the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) intends to conduct a series of pilot tests of math adaptive learning technologies in Oregon classrooms grades K to 8. An adaptive learning technology is software that can personalize education for a student, adapt based on student interaction, and provide feedback to teachers about student progress. Funds will be awarded to schools to pilot previously identified math adaptive learning technologies.
