New Curricula Strategies for Remote Learning
Customer support takes on a whole new meaning during a pandemic as Brett Woudenberg and his team discovered on what they remember as Pi Day 2020 (March 14). In this episode, Brett talks about how his company responded to the incredible demand surge and the importance of supporting not only the students, but faculty and parents as well.
Brett Woudenberg is Chief Executive Officer of MIND Research Institute, creators of ST Math, an award-winning, game-based instructional software for K-12 designed to boost math comprehension and proficiency through visual learning, and used by millions of students across the US and beyond.
Previously, Brett also served as Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Sapling Learning and later the STEM Group at Macmillan Learning, a top publisher with a portfolio of rapidly growing, award-winning and nationally recognized education products and services to the higher education and high school marketplaces. Brett was also Chief Operating Officer (COO) at Gaggle, and President & Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at Trailblazer Learning, two award winning learning platforms used in thousands of K-12 school districts and charter schools by millions of students and teachers across the US and internationally.
Before focusing on the education sector, Brett developed strategic leadership abilities in C-level roles for private equity ventures across several industries after forging his analytical and business development skills as a corporate loan officer at a top super regional bank in the Midwest.
In the early 1990s, three University of California researchers united behind a simple yet innovative idea: let’s teach math the way children learn—through visuals and experiences. In 1998, they created an independent nonprofit now known as MIND Research Institute. They applied that experiential learning approach to the development of innovative, visually-based software games, leading to the creation of Spatial-Temporal (ST) Math®.
ST Math is a visual instructional program that builds a deep conceptual understanding of math through rigorous learning and creative problem solving. The program deeply engages, motivates, and challenges students toward higher achievement.
Through ongoing research, we continue to investigate key questions about learning, mathematics, and how the brain works. We work to create unique and effective learning environments for students and teachers, both inside and outside of the classroom.
