Amplify Education Inc. About us
About Us
Amplify is reimagining the way teachers teach and students learn. We enable teachers to manage whole classrooms and, at the same time, empower them to offer more personalized instruction, so that students become more active, engaged learners.

Amplify is comprised of three divisions: Amplify Insight, Amplify Learning and Amplify Access.

The Amplify Insight and Amplify Learning divisions grew out of the work of Wireless Generation and, as a complement, the Amplify Access division was created shortly thereafter. Each of these divisions sells products independently of one another.

Powerful assessment tools and services

Amplify Insight is harnessing the power of data and coaching to raise the level of performance of districts, teachers and students. Insight provides districts and states across the country with educational assessment and analytic solutions that measure student learning and drive personalized instruction. By making data actionable in real time, our Insight products and services help teachers and administrators assess student progress, adapt to student needs and accelerate student learning.

Rigorous, engaging curriculum for the Common Core Amplify Learning is creating exciting new curriculum that reinvents teaching and learning in the core subjects of English Language Arts, math and science. These products combine interactive game-like experiences with analytics that meet the rigorous demands of the CCSS. By optimizing the power of adaptive technologies, our Learning products support individualized instruction for students and, at the same time, facilitate classroom management for teachers.

Mobile experiences designed for education Amplify Access is making anytime, anywhere learning an affordable reality for schools. By developing new distribution and delivery models, our Access products ease—and accelerate—a school’s digital transition. Toward that end, the Amplify Tablet bundles quality instructional content and intuitive classroom tools with wireless connectivity and mobile device management. Access also provides high-quality training, project management and customer support to guide districts, schools and classrooms on their path to digital education.
