Triumph Learning Unveils Smart Practice Solution, Waggle At ISTE

6/30/2014 12:00:00 AM NEW YORK, NY – June 30, 2014Triumph Learning, producer of critically acclaimed K-12 texts and interactive digital tools, launches Waggle, an online learning platform that generates a smart practice environment to help students in grades 3-8 prepare for assessments. This new transformative learning system offers Common Core and state standards-aligned content in English language arts and math, and is fully integrated with Triumph Learning’s Coach resources. It will be showcased for the first time at the 2014 ISTE Conference and Expo in Atlanta June 28–July 1.

“Every student should have a secure way to learn and acquire skills they need to succeed,” said Rick Noble, CEO of Triumph Learning. “Through custom feedback and tailored instruction, Waggle supports the needs of each individual student, whether they are on-level, struggling or excelling, to help them practice intelligently for assessments.”

Waggle champions productive struggle by creating a safe and engaging environment for students to explore, accelerate learning, and build confidence. The platform is powered by Knewton’s adaptive learning engine, which analyzes what students know and how they learn best. It can then recommend what to study next in Waggle, personalizing the learning path for each student. Instructions and hints are continuously customized to help students develop proficiency and comfort with assigned skills.

“Waggle is an innovative tool built to address the needs of today’s classrooms,” said Jose Ferreira, founder and CEO of Knewton. “Within Waggle, Knewton-powered recommendations provide students with more personalized lessons, while Knewton-powered analytics identify knowledge gaps and predict performance to help educators offer more tailored support for every student.”

Waggle provides an adaptive practice program for students as well as a comprehensive instructional tool for educators. Waggle’s interactive skills map creates a snapshot of student progress, allowing teachers to quickly filter content for proficiency and student scores. The platform’s intuitive reporting gives teachers the help they need in planning, predicting and adjusting instruction for each student. Plain language insights help educators identify students who are struggling or excelling in certain content areas and take immediate steps to remediate or accelerate as necessary.

Through Waggle, educators can assign instructional content, either online or from Triumph Learning’s Coach print resources, to individual students, groups or the whole class directly from the teacher dashboard to deliver differentiated practice and instruction. Waggle is integrated with Coach for a complete blended learning solution.
