intellADAPT Attends New England Venture Summit in Dedham, MA

On the 6th and 7th of December, 2016, intellADAPT, a Boston based educational technology and Adaptive Learning Startup, attended the New England Venture Summit in Dedham MA. At the event, intellADAPT presented its brainwave adaptive technology to various Venture Capital firms.

The presentation, delivered by CEO Dr. Nish Sonwalkar, was on how education can be transformed by brainwave adaptive technology. The presentation focused on how intellADAPT’s patented brain wave assessment engine can dramatically boost learning outcomes at the k-12 and higher Ed levels.

The intellADAPT team generated a great deal of interest in the brainwave adaptive technology aspect of intellADAPT’s Adaptive Resource for the Classroom or ARC.

Dr. Nishikant Sonwalkar, founder and President of intellADAPT engaged with numerous Venture Capital companies present at the summit and was encouraged by the responses of many of them. Saying He said “We are integrating the first Brain-Computer Interface in our adaptive learning platform, that will give unprecedented opportunity to improve learning outcome in schools and college for STEM education.” IntellADAPT saw an overwhelming response from visitors and fellow participants that were convinced that they could use intellADAPT’s technology in their STEM programs to enhance learning outcome.

Attendees were impressed by intellADAPT’s ability to assess attention states using the EEG headband and relate that information into differentiated learning strategies. intellADAPT is excited about this new piece of technology and will be gearing up for its implementation in the coming months.

The intellADAPT team would like to give a special thank you to Joe Benjamin and his staff as a well as the Hilton Dedham, MA for serving as host for this important event.

intellADAPT Initiates National Pilot with Six HBCUs at UDC

On Thursday, October 6, 2016, intellADAPT, a Boston based educational technology and Adaptive Learning Startup, held two events at The University of the District of Columbia, in Washington, DC. This was the first phase of the National Science Foundation funded pilot project which will provide opportunities for six participating Historically Black Colleges and Universities to explore and implement intellADAPT’s patented Adaptive 2.0 technology. This phase of the pilot will be ongoing over the next nine months.

The events held October 6th included a one-hour Open Discussion about intellADAPT’s Adaptive 2.0 education technology. This session was led by Dr. Nish Sonwalkar, (ScD. MIT), intellADAPT’s CEO and Founder and members of intellADAPT’s staff. The second even of the day was a Workshop for representatives from the six participating HBCUs will be held and conducted by intellADAPT staff.

The six HBCUs participating were Alabama A&M University, Alabama State University, Central State University (OH), Tougaloo College, The University of the District of Columbia, and the University of Maryland Eastern Shores. IntellADAPT looks forward to initiating collaborative efforts with these institutions to implement the pilot program in the near future.

The intellADAPT team would like to give a special thank you to Dr. Carl Moore and his staff at The University of the District of Columbia for serving as host for this important event.

IntellADAPT Launches First Big Data Analytics Driven Adaptive AP Physics Course

IntellADAPT Launches First Big Data Analytics Driven Adaptive AP Physics Course

The percentage of students who receive a 5 on the Advanced Placement (AP) Physics 1 and Physics 2 exams is 4.6% and 8.5% respectively. (CollegeBoard, 2016). The U.S. Department of Commerce estimates that by 2018, the U.S. will have more than 1.2 million unfilled STEM jobs due to the lack of qualified workers to fill them. IntellADAPT is positioned to ensure that U.S. students are prepared for the exciting career opportunities in STEM-related fields.

IntellADAPT, a leader in adaptive learning technology, has recently launched the first Adaptive AP Physics course to prepare students for the AP physics exams.  A high score in AP physics exams enables high school students to get into good universities and reduces cost of education by earning college credits. The adaptive course is integrated with the classroom instruction as an adaptive resource for the classroom (ARC).   This ARC allows students to learn difficult concepts in physics with differentiated instructional design and continuous intelligent feedback with assessment and remediation. ARC uses big data analytics to enable teachers to get real time student data to improve learning outcome for AP classes.

Dr. Nish Sonwalkar, ScD MIT, founder and CEO of intellADAPT, commented “There is an acute shortage of AP Physics teachers in educational workforce today. As Physics is gateway course to various fields within STEM education, it is essential that we provide necessary adaptive resources and big data analytics to enhance physics education. We are delighted to receive National Science Foundation funding to provide adaptive learning for physics education across the country.”

This coming spring semester 2017, IntellADAPT is working with numerous teachers and hundreds of students across USA. The adaptive physics offering is used to better accommodate individual learner’s needs to deepen their comprehension of physics.  Physics is a foundational course for many STEM careers, including those in the health care industry, yet many students struggle through the content, get discouraged, and drop out of their dream majors as a result.

“Big data analytics driven adaptive learning technology is a powerful learning tool for students to master difficult concepts using multiple learning strategies,” said Charles McClinton, PhD.  VP of Academic Program Development. “The platform enables teachers to manage their class and improve competency of the students simultaneously.”

About intellADAPT, Inc.:  IntellADAPT is an EdwiseTech Inc. company, a pioneer in adaptive learning and is based in UMass Boston’s Venture Development Center.  Founded in 2014, its products are based upon cognitive learning theories and the latest brainwave science to perform real-time analytics and drive deep comprehension. The company has developed a patented Adaptive 2.0 platform to enable advanced education technology for STEM education.
