Publisher Hachette Livre and adaptive learning company Knewton are partnering to create digital curricula personalised for students.
Hachette Livre’s education publishing houses in France – Hachette Education, Hatier, Didier and Foucher – will use Knewton technology to “create learning materials that dynamically adjust based on each student’s unique needs”.
The first products will be available for students from the 2016 school year.
Carole Percet-Guibourg, director of digital education development for Hachette Livre in France, said: “Adaptive learning is a tremendous tool for teachers. With Knewton, we can create learning products that show educators what each student knows or needs to work on, so they can tailor content for every individual.”
Jose Ferreira, founder and c.e.o. of Knewton, which has offices in New York, London and Sao Paulo, said: “With Hachette Livre, we can help more teachers and students in the French-speaking world access learning materials that are tailored to each individual. Together we can help teachers and students of all skill levels get more personalised learning materials and help them succeed.”
