We spoke with the founder and CEO of the adaptive learning platform Knewton.
“We use data to make your education better, that’s it.”
“We know everything about what you know and how you learn best because we get so much data. We can predict failure in advance, which means we can pre-remediate it in advance.”
Knewton has had students in 190 countries, and this fall over 600,000 students will use the platform. Mashable spoke with Ferreira about big data, what inspired his innovative approach to ed tech and the impact he hopes Knewton will have on the world of education and the world at large.
