Carnegie Learning Continues to Drive Innovation with the Launch of digitalACE™: A New Core Mathematics App for iPad

New App Features Research-Proven Math Content that Supports Student
Learning in a Digital Classroom

PITTSBURGH–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Carnegie Learning, Inc. announced today the introduction of its newest
offering, digitalACE™. digitalACE is an iPad-based application featuring
Carnegie Learning’s research-proven core mathematics content for Grades
6–12.

digitalACE was designed to address the challenge of encouraging students
to learn mathematics deeply and robustly in the very limited amount of
instructional time available in the 21st century classroom.
By combining its learning sciences knowledge base with its technical
expertise, Carnegie Learning has created an interactive application that
supports active learning in middle and high school math classes. With
digitalACE, it is now possible for teachers to access all middle school
and core high school lesson content regardless of the grade level they
are teaching. With this innovative app, educators are able to develop a
course curriculum that meets their teaching objectives and their
students’ learning goals.

“digitalACE is built for today’s students. The app represents a complete
rethinking of the traditional textbook concept,” said Erin Simmons,
chief operating officer for Carnegie 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
mathematics in a digital device. 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.”

Carnegie Learning paid close attention to the research regarding both
student understanding and management of classroom time when developing
digitalACE. The features within the app not only build on the ability of
technology to enhance student learning, but also allow teachers to
implement mathematics instruction in a way to optimize that learning and
overcome constraints such as limited time in the classroom or meeting
multiple student needs within a single-teacher classroom.

digitalACE was introduced at the company’s recent 2015 Digital Learning
Summit, during which educators shared best practices and strategies for
leveraging digital tools to enhance student learning. Attendees were
able to attend a local school currently utilizing digitalACE and other
digital learning technologies in their mathematics classrooms.
Additionally, attendees heard from two industry learning experts, Dr.
John Almarode, Visible LearningPLUS Trainer and Assistant
Professor at James Madison University, and Julia Freeland Fisher, JD,
Director of Education Research at Clayton Christensen Institute for
Disruptive Innovation.
