Adaptemy was founded on the vision that technologies can make learning more effective and teaching more enjoyable. But that existing solutions were missing some critical elements in this complex process.
Learning is a journey of personal growth. Everyone is different. But the social environment of learning is one of the main factors of motivation – the dynamics of the classroom, the relationship with the teacher.
We build teaching and learning experiences that use the most powerful data technologies in the pursuit of happy teachers and students.
Our first prototype courses in our “Adaptive Academy” began in April 2013, we launched our first full curriculum product in September 2013, our first publisher partnership in September 2014, and by the 2015/16 academic year, our adaptive classrooms were in use in 3 countries across Europe.
In 2016, Adaptemy has now completed a major investment round, and is busy building the future of personalised learning with publishing partners around the world.
