GiftedandTalented.com Launches Personalized Math Program for Accelerated Learners
GiftedandTalented.com has launched a new digital math program for students in grades K-7, Redbird Mathematics: Advanced Edition, based on Stanford's Education Program for Gifted Youth (EPGY).
The tutor-supported adaptive learning program includes graphics, more than 75 games and digital learning projects inspired by STEM industries and is designed to accelerate mathematics mastery with engaging lessons that vary according to a student's learning style and pace. Redbird Mathematics: Advanced Edition also features the ability to teach each new skill in a variety of ways, such as through animated lectures, embedded apps, exercises or games.
"GiftedandTalented.com is the evolution of Stanford University's EPGY research project which developed pioneering computer-based, multimedia courses and tutoring services in mathematics, language arts, science and computer programming specifically designed to help K-12 students become advanced learners," according to a news release. "In 2013, Stanford selected Redbird Advanced Learning to modernize the technology behind EPGY and make the project's courses accessible to more students worldwide. GiftedandTalented.com was developed by educators, innovators and researchers from both Redbird and Stanford."
"Pairing EPGY's deep research foundation with today's most innovative education technology significantly advances the field of online learning — a continuation of decades of pioneering work by Stanford researchers who established the use of computers for learning," said Matthew Mugo Fields, founder and president of GiftedandTalented.com, in a prepared statement.
