Adapt primary maths

Adapt primary math covers the national curriculum, follows a mastery approach and aligns with White Rose Math. Schools are utilizing Adapt primary math in a multitude of ways, e.g., SATs preparation, targeted intervention or practice and consolidation in class, to enhance the learning experience.

Adapt for Secondary

Adapt for Secondary meets the diverse needs of students across various subjects and levels. From Science to Maths, History to Geography, Adapt provides an array of resources to support teaching and learning. Schools are utilizing Adapt in a multitude of ways, e.g., regular homework, exam preparation or quick recaps, to enhance the learning experience.

We try to develop a growth mindset, and the Collins platform supports that in two ways: firstly, children must keep on going until they get the questions right. Secondly, because they must rate their own confidence for each answer given, it reinforces the message about not being afraid to admit they don’t know something.

Adaptive Learning and Metacognition

Insights from Thornden School – part of HISP Multi Academy Trust, with University of Sussex Doctoral Research Case Study between April 2023-July 2023 | Part 1

Research at Thornden School, part of HISP Multi Academy Trust with the University of Sussex revealed the impact of adaptive learning and metacognition in KS3 Biology. Using the Adapt platform, learners developed mastery-based metacognition through deliberate practice and reflective questioning. This approach shifted focus from rote learning to mastery, empowering learners and fostering deeper understanding. Equity-based learning objectives facilitated significant metacognitive development, while the Open Learner Model helped teachers support students’ specific challenges. Dialogue and collaboration among peers and teachers played a crucial role in metacognitive growth. Overall, the study highlighted the effectiveness of adaptive learning and metacognitive strategies in enhancing science education, promoting critical thinking, and fostering a collaborative classroom environment.
