Digital Directions International (DDI) creates award-winning digital curriculum and assessments for English language learners and students with learning disabilities and special needs. DDI’s engaging solutions, built through public-private partnerships, are designed to personalize students’ learning experience. Gold standard research demonstrates that DDI’s math program increases students’ academic achievement, language ability, and feelings of self-efficacy. The programs’ support student learning principally by using a technique called sheltered instruction in which content and English language are taught simultaneously. All products are field-tested and evidence-based. DDI’s curricula are aligned to standards. Students get fast feedback and a dynamic curriculum tailored to their individual needs. A wide repertoire of reports provides valuable information to students, teachers and administrators.
