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.

MITCOB Panel Discussion Moderated by Dr. Nish Sonwalkar

Post by: Andrew Ficken

Everyone’s burning question was finally answered at MIT Club of Boston’s panel discussion, “who the heck cares about social media?”
Moderator Dr. Nish Sonwalkar, founder and CEO of intellADAPT, introduced an unusual panel of successful millennials whose careers would not exist without the help social media. Panelist Toni Oloko is the founder and CEO of PracticeGigs, an app to match local tennis players for practice, even offering to hire professionals for an additional fee. Carolyn Reckhow, Head of Staff at LeanGap, an entrepreneurship accelerator program for high school students, just finished her Master’s in macro social work at Boston University while also serving as marketing coordinator for CityAwake, an organization which strives to foster Boston’s social impact ecosystem through social entrepreneurship. Finally, Eddy Zhong is the co-founder of LeanGap, the story of his success covered by Business Insider, Business Journals, and Huffington Post a few months after the company’s founding. Together, they discuss which social media platform is best, how much time should be allocated to your social media identity, how to most effectively build your online profile, and what exactly is a hashtag. Newer generations are interested in the authentic and mundane aspects of people’s lives. In order to connect with as many people as possible, you need to provide them with opportunities to engage with you. While it all may seem daunting and time consuming, all that is needed to keep up to date is a few minutes on the way to get coffee or while waiting on the train for work each day. Together, these young professionals go into detail about all of these aspects of social media and more.
