What is Teaching, Anyway? [VIDEO]

Welcome back to another installment of Knewton’s brownbag series! This time, I took matters into my own hands to bring you “What is Teaching, Anyway?”

I realized that while Knewton is an education company, not many people in our office actually “teach” in the traditional sense. But whether giving Hack Day presentations, talks like this one, or just leading a meeting, everyone’s jobs incorporate elements of teaching sometimes. Check out my thoughts on what the heck teaching is, anyway, and then take a look at our awesome panel discussion, featuring Knewton employees with extensive and varied teaching experience!

With so many experienced teachers in our midst, we’d be remiss not to ask them what they think! Check out our moderated panel discussion below and see what our former-teachers-turned-content-developers have to say:

Adaptive Learning Roundtable, Part 5: Understanding How Students Learn Over Time [VIDEO]

Recently, David Kuntz (our VP of Research), Jose Ferreira (our Founder and CEO), and Len Swanson (the former Executive Director of ETS and the man behind Knewton’s testing algorithm), sat down for an in-depth talk on all things adaptive learning. In the fifth video installment of the discussion, David, Jose, and Len discuss how the data collected by Knewton’s Adaptive Learning Platform will help us understand more about how students learn and progress over time.

Adaptive Learning Roundtable, Part 4: Making K-12 Statewide Tests Adaptive [VIDEO]

In the fourth video installment of our Adaptive Learning Roundtable, David Kuntz (VP of Research at Knewton), and Len Swanson (former ETS Executive Director and the designer of Knewton’s testing algorithm) talk about how adaptive testing can improve K-12 statewide testing.

Furthermore, as David points out, when adaptive tests are used along with an adaptive engine that monitors variables about individual students, the result is full-fledged adaptive learning.

As a reminder, a few definitions before you watch the video: adaptive tests adapt to a test-taker’s ability level, yielding more efficient measurements of students’ proficiency levels at a given point in time. Adaptive testing is not synonymous with adaptive learning, which tracks students’ proficiency levels over extended periods of time.

Adaptive Learning Roundtable, Part 3: Real Time Skills Profiling [VIDEO]

In the third installment of our Adaptive Learning Roundtable, David Kuntz, Knewton VP of Research, and Len Swanson, former Executive Director of ETS and the designer of Knewton’s adaptive testing algorithm, discuss the role of real-time skills profiling in adaptive learning. Watch the video to learn more about how skills profiling helps Knewton’s Adaptive Learning Platform™ identify the most effective learning path for each individual student.

Adaptive Learning Roundtable, Part 2: Adaptive Tests vs. Pencil & Paper Tests [VIDEO]

In Part 2 of our Adaptive Learning Roundtable, Knewton CEO Jose Ferreria, Knewton VP of Research David Kuntz, and Len Swanson, the man behind Knewton’s testing algorithm (and the former Executive Director of ETS) discuss what makes adaptive tests different than paper and pencil tests. Adaptive tests are widely credited as being more reliable — but why?

Before you watch the video, a few definitions: adaptive tests adapt to a test-taker’s ability level, yielding more efficient measurements of students’ proficiency levels at a given point in time. It is important to keep in mind that adaptive testing is not synonymous with adaptive learning, which tracks students’ proficiency levels over extended periods of time.
