Carnegie Learning Introduces New Math Instruction App for iPads

Carnegie Learning has introduced a new iPad-based application for math designed for students in grades 6-12.

The digitalACE app can make middle and high school math content available to teachers that can be customized for individual students, regardless of their grade level.

The company said the new app is built on its knowledge basis regarding learning science and its technical expertise, keeping in mind the limitations many teachers have to work with: limited instructional time and the multiple student needs in a single-teacher classroom.

The new app is designed to allow educators to develop course curricula that both meets their teaching objectives and recognizes various students' learning goals. The creators of digitalACE, according to Carnegie Learning, balance the ability of technology to enhance student learning with the needs of teachers who want to implement math instruction that optimizes learning.

"It empowers students to own how they interact with the math content, choose how they express their reasoning with interactive features and engage with real-world math in a digital device," said Carnegie Learning COO Erin Simmons. "In addition, educators are able to customize and create their own curricula; access student work in real-time; provide feedback; and select, organize and present student responses, all within the app."

The new app was introduced at the company's 2015 Digital Learning Summit.
