More information about the project
Plan Ceibal in Uruguay is probably the most advanced state agency devoted to digital education from the region. One of its main initiatives is an online adaptive learning solution called “Mathematics Adaptive Platform”(PAM for its Spanish acronym). PAM’s content has been adapted to the national curriculum, and it is a tool that provides personalized feedback according to each student’s skill level based on an analysis of student experiences. Some studies have already shown how the program has already had a positive impact on learning.
PAM was developed by the German company Bettermarks and began to be used in 2013 as part of the One Laptop Per Child program, offering students over 100,000 activities to give personalised assistance to students according to their level of knowledge. PAM provides students with help through a set of over 25 thousand step-by-step exercises and 2800 feedback patterns to explain the solutions of each exercise.
