Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Acquires Waggle, an AI-Driven Solution for K-12

Jan 15, 2019

WIGGLE ROOM FOR WAGGLE: K-12 education publisher Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) announced Tuesday that it has acquired Waggle, an AI-powered adaptive learning solution. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, other than that Waggle staff will become HMH employees, effective immediately.

HMH, which claims to reach more than 50 million students and 3 million teachers in 150 countries, plans to integrate Waggle’s adaptive learning solutions into its core curriculum for students in grades 2-8 learning math and English language arts. Using Waggle’s web-based platform, which identifies classroom trends and can help organize students by performance and interests, HMH hopes to provide a more personalized learning experience for its student users.

Waggle was launched in 2014 by Triumph Learning, a company now owned by School Specialty. Waggle was briefly shuttered in 2017 before going back live in April 2018. The company’s AI-enabled solutions will still be offered individually to schools, according to a press release.
