ScootPad Releases White Paper: The Science Behind Our Mastery-Based Adaptive Learning Platform

San Jose, CA – March 15, 2018 – ScootPad, a leading adaptive learning platform, today released a 30-page technology white paper discussing the underlying research, effectiveness studies and the learning science innovations that power their mastery-based adaptive learning platform.

Recent advancements in technology have made it possible for individualized learning to be more affordable and accessible to all students like never before. This white paper outlines how ScootPad incorporates proven research-based strategies, advanced learning science, modern design principles, and cutting-edge technologies to deliver a deeply personalized learning experience for every student – anywhere, anytime, on any device, and at any scale.

As the quest for personalized learning gains traction among educators, and more and more products claim “adaptive learning” capabilities, a certain fuzziness has emerged around the term. This white paper also attempts to dispel some of the common misconceptions and misunderstandings around adaptive learning, personalized learning and machine learning – using simple examples in layman’s terms.

“Guided by distinguished advisors from Stanford University, we bring the best in educational research, instructional methods and data analytics to continually develop, refine and deliver the most effective and impactful learning solutions.” said Bharat Kumar, Co-founder and CEO of ScootPad. “We believe that by harnessing technology and applying what we know about learning science, we can deliver powerful personalized learning experiences.”
