SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Leading education technology company Adaptive Curriculum announced today the launch of its first consumer product, Uzinggo. Uzinggo is designed to improve a student’s comprehension and test scores in math and science with customized help at home. Uzinggo is an online-based learning system that combines leading education techniques, interactive game-like graphics, real-world simulations and motivational tools to help students fully understand what they are learning in school.
“The incredible turn-around stories school administrators and teachers have shared with us inspired us to create a product parents can use at home with their children to further support the learning experience, and help all of our children perform well on assessments.”
Much more engaging than a textbook, Uzinggo helps students, striving to improve in math and science, learn through online lessons that are designed for digital-age learners. Uzinggo is built on a foundation of extensively researched educational standards. The 5E Instructional Model – Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate and Evaluate – is built into each of Uzinggo’s study plans, or ZingPaths™. Uzinggo is available for students in grades 5-12, with ZingPaths™ in courses ranging from Pre-Algebra to Physics. Prep and review courses are also available in a variety of subjects.
"For the U.S. to remain a leader in global innovation we have to acknowledge that many of our students are struggling in math and science," says Peter Rillero, Ph.D., Science Education, Tenured Professor of Science Education, Teachers College, Arizona State University. "The research conducted jointly with ASU and Adaptive Curriculum illustrates that there are ways to address this: students need a deeper understanding of math and science, and they need to relate these subjects to the real world – Uzinggo does this."
When using Uzinggo, students are guided through a ZingPath™ on a chosen subject course with audio prompts and robust interactive models. After receiving guided instruction and completing an activity, students are rewarded with points and badges. Students can earn more points by completing an assessment and performing well on the questions. Activities and assessments can be repeated as many times as needed until the student fully comprehends the subject matter.
“Adaptive Curriculum’s institutional product is successfully implemented in schools across the country, where students have been struggling to achieve average performance levels, let alone excel,” said Adaptive Curriculum CEO Jim Bowler. “The incredible turn-around stories school administrators and teachers have shared with us inspired us to create a product parents can use at home with their children to further support the learning experience, and help all of our children perform well on assessments.”
Students are motivated to succeed when using Uzinggo in a variety of ways that cannot be found in a traditional classroom environment. Earning points enables students to build an avatar, create their own online room or even enter themselves for a chance to win gift cards by bidding on prizes. Viewing their score ranking on the leader board and earning various badges furthers their motivation.
Parental involvement is an integral part of the Uzinggo learning experience. Parents can log into their account at any time to view their child’s progress through the lessons, how much time the child has spent on activities, if the child completed assessments and how the child performed on the assessments. There are also additional assessments and answer keys available through the parents’ portal that they can print out to use offline with their child to further enhance the learning experience.

Uzinggo – online, interactive Math and Science software – was designed for middle and high school students to use at home to dramatically improve their grades in school. Based on the award-winning Adaptive Curriculum Math and Science curriculum, Uzinggo uses real-world scenarios and stunning game-like graphics to engage students and make learning fun. A built-in gaming platform rewards students for their increased knowledge, and a parental-monitoring function allows parents and guardians to view their children’s progress. Uzinggo's content is based on proven teaching techniques and research, and the strictest of state and federal standards to which schools are accountable. For more information visit www.uzinggo.com.
