Partners reach 45,000,000 students Nationwide
MIAMI, June 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- PassTheNotes, the cloud-based platform that makes it easier for teachers and students to collaborate and share content inside and outside of the classroom, today announced five strategic partnerships with Voyager, NEC Corporation of America, Nutech, Inc., Carvechi Technology, and All Covered, a division of Konica Minolta, to enhance digital learning in classrooms around the country. These companies will license PassTheNotes technology to create educational portfolios, expanding their technology offerings in schools.
"Today's school districts are looking for digital tools that make teaching more dynamic, engaging and increase overall student achievement," said Frankie Coletto, co-founder and CEO of PassTheNotes. "We are excited to work with our new partners to place their content online and expand their reach into the digital classrooms of our internet-based world."
These partners reach the classrooms of 85 percent of the public school districts in the United States, which include over 83,000 schools and 45 million students. PassTheNotes offers publishers and technology companies the opportunity to bridge the gap between print materials and the use of technology in the classroom, through an all-in-one educational content management system that boosts engagement and collaboration among students and teachers. Within the platform, communication can take place across the entire educational hierarchy, from the teacher all the way through to the district office.
"We had a complex challenge and needed to develop a vertical education portfolio that can offer a complete online solution across schools, district-wide," said JP Parmley, Education Practice Director of All Covered, a division of Konica Minolta. "PassTheNotes has created a platform that is intuitive for students to engage with, and simple for teachers to implement. We recognized PassTheNotes' ability to go beyond the product and cover the process of implementation and training in the classroom."
PassTheNotes' white-labeled solutions give publishers, technology companies and educational institutions a chance to build customizable learning environments based upon the needs of their individual school districts, avoiding a structured, one-piece-fits-all scenario. Teachers can incorporate existing mandated course curriculum with the online resources to build more interactive dynamic lesson plans, either teaching directly from the platform or using it as a supplement to their current programs. In the platform, students are able to digitally take notes, highlight textbooks or homework and share ideas with their teachers in real-time. This allows instant collaboration to grow among fellow classmates both when students are in class or at home.
"We've chosen to deepen our relationship with PassTheNotes after seeing how well Edplicity has been adopted by school districts," said George Logue, president of Voyager Sopris Learning, a business unit of Cambium Learning Group. "PassTheNotes took the best of our publisher-created content and brought it online in a way that makes teaching easier and increases student participation substantially in the classroom."
