HERNDON, Va., April 27, 2016—Personalized learning solutions provider Fuel Education™ (FuelEd™) today announced that it has formed an exclusive partnership with LTS Education Systems® (LTS), a provider of proven adaptive, game-based learning solutions for students in pre-K–11th grade. The partnership enables FuelEd to deliver schools and districts more robust supplemental options for skills practice, assessment, and test readiness across all core subjects, in a highly engaging format that motivates students and inspires persistence.
LTS offers Stride™, an award-winning supplemental learning solution that is aligned to state and national standards. Through Stride, teachers easily assign modules to students, either as a class or individually, and students can complete the modules at school or at home. As students answer questions, they earn ‘coins’ which can be redeemed for gaming time within Stride. The more questions that students answer correctly, the more coins they earn. Additionally, the Stride question engine is adaptive. Questions cycle up or down in difficulty, depending on how the student is doing. Teachers can generate real-time reports to monitor progress and inform instructional decisions.
LTS was founded in 2001, and has grown to provide Stride at 1,500 schools and afterschool sites in 37 states, serving more than 350,000 students. In a 2014 independent study by the Public Affairs Research Council of Alabama, student test results in grades 3–8 were 10 to 14 percent higher in reading, and 13 percent higher in math, as a result of using Stride to support learning. In addition, the results were strong across subgroups, indicating that the solution helps close the achievement gap.
“The addition of LTS Education Systems’ Stride product to Fuel Education’s portfolio of personalized learning solutions means our school and district partners have yet another proven, innovative way to help boost student achievement,” said Gregg Levin, General Manager of Fuel Education. “The Stride supplemental learning solution for all core subjects uses gamification to deliver meaningful experiences to students, who become motivated to move up the learning continuum. We are very pleased to be able to offer this highly engaging, game-based digital learning solution to schools and districts.”
“Like Fuel Education, LTS Education Systems has always been committed to enabling schools to provide students highly personalized learning experiences. With game-based digital learning, students want to continue their learning after school hours, which, as studies show, can result in significantly improved outcomes,” said Brian Shulman, Founder of LTS Education Systems. “We look forward to offering FuelEd’s innovative district partners our standards-aligned, supplemental learning solution.”
Fuel Education will integrate Stride with its award-winning Personalized Learning Platform, PEAK™, an open, easy-to-use technology platform that provides a single, unified view of online and blended learning activities across multiple solutions for administrators, teachers, and students. PEAK provides intelligent reporting and analytics to help districts reduce system complexity and simplify administration as they adopt more digital and online learning solutions.
