About ALEF

Alef is a privately-held education technology company, with a team of more than 300 leading technology and education experts who have joined forces to reimagine the future of learning.

Driven by a notion that each student across the world has an innate curiosity to learn, the team at Alef has developed a transformational technology-enabled education solution that recognises that every student deserves a customized learning journey – moving from the traditional teacher-centred model to a new, learner-centred model.

Alef is a K - 12 technology-enabled education solution designed to improve learning outcomes in the mainstream classroom setting. It enhances the learning experience of K-12 students by building content that carefully interweaves skills, character, and knowledge across and within subjects. Alef content is grounded in the latest in learning science research. Before it reaches any student, every lesson in Alef undergoes rigorous testing against a predefined framework.

Alef’s technology and curriculum are carefully synchronized, allowing students to learn at their own pace. With real-time data at their finger tips, teachers are able to support students' learning goals by making informed decisions about when to intervene and how.
