InfoSource is proud to be selected to join the ISTE 100 Alliance, a forward-thinking group of corporations and non-profits who share the commitment to improve teaching and learning by advancing the effective use of technology in education. InfoSource advances that commitment by offering quality professional development solutions geared to providing educators with the strategies and resources to integrate computers and the Internet in to their classrooms. Membership selection demonstrates InfoSource’s ongoing mission to advance learning excellence through the use of innovative technology in education.
InfoSource, developer of the industry’s first Integrating Technology in the Classroom online learning content for educators, represents a new model for providing training on how to effectively use technology in support of teaching, learning, and educational leadership. Integrating technology in the classroom is recognized as a critical mission by ISTE, leaders in education, and the companies, like InfoSource, that provide the educational products that support the teaching objectives of these leaders.
“Partnering with ISTE will further help InfoSource achieve our goal of providing every educator with quality Internet-based instructional resources and the requisite professional development to use these resources effectively with students,” said Michael Werner, Owner and CEO of InfoSource. “We are committed to educating today's youth and improving the digital literacy skills of faculty and staff members who are tasked with this great responsibility. As an ISTE 100 member, working directly with those people who experience first-hand educational needs and opportunities, InfoSource is able to effectively develop educational courseware and applications to help both teachers and learners achieve their goals,” continued Werner.
“As state and federal education funds continue to be slashed, educators are seeking technology services that are affordable, cost-effective, and can benefit as many students as possible – from an individual school level, district level, and state level,” said Dr. Don Knezek, CEO of ISTE. Educational technology solution providers, like InfoSource, are to be commended for working to address the budget shortfalls plaguing states today."
