NEW YORK, Sept. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Virtua Education is the latest offering that is set to transform households across the nation this back to school season, whether remote, hybrid or in the classroom. Imagine learning that adapts to kids' specific strengths and weaknesses in K-12, allowing parents to work from home at the same time. As a leading research-backed learning platform personalized for children's individual needs, Virtua Education allows modern day families to rest assured that their children won't fall behind this school year.
Research on COVID-related school closures from March 2020 onward suggests that students could be a half to a full year behind academically when the new school year begins—a challenge called the "COVID Slide" that is likely to be compounded by continued school closures.
To counter this trend, Virtua Education combines artificial intelligence (AI) with the latest advances in learning science and neuroscience to develop personalized learning pathways in reading, math and science that's easy to use for students and parents. The AI engine constantly adapts based on the learner's focus, difficulty levels, and pace of learning, among other factors. The platform boasts over 2,700 micro-lessons and a rich variety of other assets, including unlimited access to 25,000 age-appropriate eBooks including the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series,The Lord of the Rings Series, Garfield, A Wrinkle in Time, and The Berenstain Bears, audiobooks, magazine subscriptions including National Geographic Kids, online book clubs, online language instruction in Spanish, French and Mandarin Chinese, other instructional videos and more.
Developed by the Homeschool Buyer's Co-op, the world's largest buying club for homeschoolers and families for over a decade, Virtua Education offers kids in grades K-12 access to the world's leading AI learning engine for the first time. Key features and functionality include:
- The AI engine creates personalized learning pathways that plug gaps in knowledge and remedy misconceptions.
- Easy-to-use data dashboards help parents to guide their children through their learning. Areas where the child requires additional support or challenge are quickly identified.
- Families are provided with thousands of high-quality resources for use in a variety of learning models.
