Improving education with technology: Enlearn, founded by UW CSE’s Zoran Popovic, bringing adaptable curricula to market

Zoran PopovicUW CSE’s Zoran Popovic, director of the Center for Game Science, founded the non-profit Enlearn to bring what he calls the “generative adaptation” approach to student learning. Now, through a new partnership with education publisher Voyager Sopris Learning, it is bringing its adatable curricula to market. The deal will make new tools in English language arts and reading comprehension, built on the Enlearn platform, to K-12 schools across the country.

Frank Catalano of GeekWire writes:

“Initially developed for tablets and now web-based so as to be device-agnostic, Enlearn’s platform – and promises – at first sound a lot like other edtech personalization plays …

“But the differences, according to founder and Chief Scientist Zoran Popovic, are that Enlearn also adapts to the classroom environment and the teacher, and isn’t just focused on mastering specific subject content, but also gauges students’ engagement and ‘persistence’ to aid in motivating them.”

Zoran will officially announce the partnership in a presentation at the SXSWedu conference in Austin next week. Read the excellent profile of Enlearn on GeekWire here, and learn more about the new publishing partnership, also courtesy of GeekWirehere.
