The Alef Platform - Alef Education

Alef Education is a leading K-12 education technology company that produces digital content to be used as a primary learning resource, and has developed a successful classroom model. Alef Education aims to revolutionize the education sector by providing an adaptive platform for personalized learning to support teachers, school leaders, parents, and most importantly students. The Alef Platform supports the needs of different students by processing data about where they are in their mastery, and the scaffolding of content to help students advance on their learning path. Alef Education designs two types of lessons: skill-based lessons and experiential lessons. We use a variety of elements to create multiple learning resources such as interactives, simulations, games, and videos. We use formative and summative assessments that provide students with hints and feedback on their performance, and that orient students towards either further mastery practice on target skills and their prerequisites or towards the next set of task challenges associated with the learning objective. The Alef Platform provides unique features such as data analytics that help teachers differentiate instruction and intervention, experiential learning that enables students to apply and transfer their newly-acquired skills, practice lessons for further skill mastery, keyword games and vocabulary supports within the lessons, and metacognitive scaffolds that create an effective instructional and classroom model.
