TEACH A COMPANY HOW TO FISH: Jefferson Education (the artist formerly known as the Jefferson Education Accelerator) has chosen a new company partner: the adaptive learning company Fishtree. Under the new partnership, Jefferson will make an equity investment in Fishtree (amount undisclosed), and the two will explore how Fishtree can improve and increase the ways teachers and students interact with digital content. Jefferson will also help Fishtree evaluate the company's efficacy.
Fishtree's tools aim to help teachers pinpoint content best suited for individual students based on "learning profiles." Teachers can filter content by standards alignment, learning objectives or student interest.
