Denver, CO (PRWEB) February 14, 2006
Eduss, a leading international developer of education software, has entered the United States with its revolutionary mathematics, literacy, language and phonics software that is currently serving more than 22% of the schools and more than 14,000 homes in Australia.
The U.S. version of the software, the Eduss Integrated Multi-Dimensional Teaching Assistant (IMTA) for K-12 education, has been 2 years in the making and has been developed to meet U.S. and state education standards while employing additional best practices from around the globe. Already 80% of principals in the U.S. test market who have seen the product have adopted it into their schools. The Eduss IMTA enables a one-to-one student to teacher ratio through the automated delivery of prescriptive learning to each pupil while the teacher facilitates the child’s educational path.
Randy Cummings, Head of Curriculum Development & Technology at Portland Adventist School, one of Eduss’ early adopter schools said, “We have found that this enables our teachers to teach on a one-to-one basis because the teacher and the parents are in tune with what the child should be learning at any given moment. While the teacher may teach a math principle on a general level to the whole class, the software can individualize that lesson for each child based on their understanding so they can work on it in class and at home.”
The hallmark of the Eduss software is three fold: first is its ability to identify the point of origination where a student’s learning of a particular subject has stopped, automatically set a learning schedule and address the problem areas through automated step-by-step tutorials. Second, unlike other solutions in the market, Eduss has integrated all teaching support materials into one system, including assessments, lesson plans, tutorials, workbook support, and school/ home communications systems. Third, the Eduss system has been designed to fully integrate with the home computer, extending the teacher into the home. In other words, when deployed in the home, the teacher can communicate with the student and parents, including automatically assigning, importing/exporting and grading homework, and providing immediate feedback to the children, parents and their teachers.
“We are pleased to bring our history of success in Australia to the U.S. market,” said Theo Scherman, Chief Executive Officer of Eduss. “The reason we have attracted so much interest in the Eduss software is its ability to continually support the teacher in providing real-time teaching assistance identifying the child’s level of knowledge and understanding of the concepts as they learn them. It virtually guarantees that a child doesn’t get left behind, and provides the teacher with the tools to support their students through all levels of schooling.”
The Eduss IMTA performs a computer-generated test that works out exactly where a child is having difficulties. Once the problems are identified, the software automatically adjusts the learning sequence to focus on the area of difficulty, and holds the child at that level until he or she develops an understanding. Children who have mastery of a concept can also be accelerated. Children enjoy learning using a combination of visual and audio help, coupled with fully interactive exercises that take a child step-by-step through their learning schedule until they reach established competencies. Eduss’ IMTA system works equally well with students who need help “catching up” to their grade level and those who are ready to advance, but now they can all be in the same classroom, providing increased class productivity and giving the teacher time for individualized instruction.
“We have seen an amazing 25% increase in our ‘Overall’ scores and some students have actually moved into the advanced math program! If you consider that these kids have a lot of environmental issues, these results are wonderful,” said Glenn Russell, a math teacher at Globe Charter School.
The Eduss system is also available as Supplemental Curriculum for schools and Title 1 programs and as a tutoring tool for parents and home schools. For parents interested in the Eduss software, the curriculum runs $275 to $375, depending on dual purchase of math and English. Schools interested in implementing the Eduss software in their schools will find it remarkably accessible and affordable.
