Imagine a kindergarten student working on second grade reading comprehension while the classmate next to her practices pre-kindergarten math skills. Both are able to work independently at their own pace because of the adaptive software on the iPads they are using. Look further, and you see 18 kindergartners working and learning independently using the technology, while six others meet with their teacher for small group instruction.
