We’re in the midst of an exciting transformation in education, fueled by technology. Today, Pearson took us one step closer to achieving personalized digital learning for all students. Available for use by schools in the 2014-2015 school year, Pearson’s Common Core System of Courses, TestNav, and reading apps iLit and eText will be available on the Windows 8 platform.
We know every student is unique and there is no one-size-fits-all technology solution that inspires every student and yields success. That is why our collaboration with Pearson is so important. We combined our extensive technology expertise with Pearson’s deep experience as an education service provider to create new content that advances a digital education model to allow students to thrive in a personalized digital learning environment.
As part of this collaboration, these new applications for Windows 8 will be valuable in the classroom:
We’ve seen how these applications can be successful in the classroom today. Milissa Crum is a teacher at Highland Middle School in Anderson, Indiana. Using iLit, she gets real-time data about her students, which helps guide her daily teaching interactions. With iLit, her sixth graders are hands-on with their learning and more involved in the conversation, which can ultimately increase their performance.
With impact like this, fueled by technology, students today have the tools to shape our future at their fingertips. There is no greater time to be a student.
