Improving Elementary Math Learner Outcomes With Digital Personalized Learning Curricula

Share this post:  
Teaching large numbers of students can sometimes be a challenge for educators. Often, teachers can gain efficiency by teaching every student the same, based on their grade level. This is not, however, effective for reaching all students, as every student is at a different point in their learning progress, no matter their age or grade in school. Students need instruction tailored specifically for their individual needs, so the instruction they are provided fosters academic achievement and helps them progress on their learning path.

Personalized learning that individualizes instruction in important skill areas is key to remediating struggling students, enriching on-level students, and accelerating overall student achievement. Today’s evidence-based, digital adaptive technology evaluates student performance and assesses progress to determine whether a student is ready to advance or needs additional practice. Students are provided with material at their zone of proximal development—the just right level allowing them to progress through lessons until they reach proficiency.

Redbird Mathematics is an adaptive curriculum program developed at Stanford University and offered by McGraw-Hill Education that gives each student in grade levels K-7 what they need to improve math skills. The program incorporates real-world examples and interactive problems and games to build students’ skills in not only problem-solving, but mathematical thinking.

Students participate in rich STEM projects for an even more difficult challenge, to extend their skills to the real world, and to help them experience and see themselves in STEM careers. The program also delivers data-based student performance information with actionable insights for teachers and school administrators.

No matter the waypoint on the learning continuum, Redbird Mathematics helps each student achieve their personal best. For more information, download an overview or visit
