Henderson, NV (PRWEB) November 8, 2005
Hensmann Technology, a leading IT solutions provider, and Global Student Network, a leading edge Virtual Curriculum provider, have announced their agreement to combine their industry leadership to provide all the tools schools need to develop and operate their own Virtual Learning Academies.
Hensmann Technology brings an established 12 year track record of helping over 2,500 customers develop and implement successful technology solutions. Their experience in assisting educational institutions in developing and implementing technology strategies enables them to significantly reduce the cost of technology equipment, at the same time as providing the tools for student improvement.
“Over the past several years, we’ve seen more schools looking to provide innovative ways to deliver education. Several schools this year established laptop initiatives to partially meet that end. We’ve seen that as a partial solution,” says Tina Smidt, CEO of Hensmann. “Providing a laptop to a student is certainly innovative, but it doesn’t go far enough to link all the elements of education together. What we believe is most important that the student, teacher, parent and school administrators are all talking the same “language” across the curriculum. The most significant way to provide that continuity of educational care is through a Virtual Curriculum and platform, and frankly, nobody does it as well, or as economically, as Global Student Network.”
Cornelius Green, Director of Sales and Marketing for Hensmann adds: “Global Student Network was a clear industry leader of Virtual Curriculum providers. They (the team of experts at Global Student Network) have an impressive track record of success in lowering the cost of IT while improving the education results, which is a perfect fit with the Hensmann-Global Education solutions.”
This new Hensmann-Global Education solution simplifies the purchase of technology hardware bundled with the Virtual Curriculum necessary to achieve results and offers a value proposition that lowers cost of ownership to an education institution while assisting in the attainment of the national standards of No Child Left Behind.
Global Student Network has enabled many public and charter schools to develop Virtual Learning Academies that enable students to benefit from the most innovative technology and curriculum available. The Global Virtual Curriculum was developed by a leading U.S. public school district. The Global Virtual Curriculum fully aligns with National Academic Content Standards, but more importantly, has the comprehensiveness and flexibility that addresses the individual needs of each and every student and school.
One of Global Student Network’s benefits is their ability to customize the curriculum package for both the student and the school. Just as no student is at the same level, each school has unique needs, priorities and strategies of success. That so many schools are looking towards Virtual Learning Academies to meet the needs of a significant portion of their student bodies supports the Department of Educations recognition of that “Best Practices” for education in the 21st century must include innovative practices in the use of technology in education. Global Virtual Curriculum contributes an extremely important element of those best practices and the Hensmann-Global Education Solution is yet another step for them to assist schools across the nation.
“Our first priority,” says Carla Tiedeman, Director of Online Curriculum, “is to ensure that each one of the schools that we work with, and every one of their students, get the most up-to-date courses available, that they have access to courseware that is most appropriate for their academic level, and that we continue to assist schools in developing the infrastructure to have their own Virtual Learning Academies. We are so very pleased to be able to work with the Hensmann Technology leadership team to this end. Our paths run parallel to each other, and by working collaboratively, we will be able to save significant fiscal resources for schools and school districts.”
The Hensmann Technology and Global Student Network partnership addresses the critical needs of technology cost and improved results for education clients. Education institutions both public and private are forced to do more with less. As budgets shrink, IT support staff are forced to meet the growing needs for the use of technology in the school but are typically unable to purchase the equipment or implement a cost effective solution due to constrained budgets. This partnership changes that for the schools. Now they can purchase what they need in terms of hardware and curricula for the school and can do so with education discounting available exclusively through the Hensmann-Global Education Solution.
