Oslo, Norway (PRWEB) May 3, 2008
WiHood and Huseby School (Oslo, Norway) have signed a LOI ("Letter Of Intent) to evaluate and begin integrating Huseby School's 4th grade class's curriculum into the WiHood service. All 45 students and 4 teachers of Huseby's 4th grade class will participate in this first-ever "virtual laptop" academic project.
With WiHood, students will be able to continue their in-class lesson at home or on any internet connected PC. "The academic continuity from classroom-to-home is seamless with WiHood" says Thomas F. Anglero, Chairman and CEO of WiHood AS. "We are honored to be cooperating with Huseby School who shares our passion to improve the education of children by providing them with WiHood, a service that protects children online and allows them to continue their classroom lesson on any internet connected PC."
WiHood's "virtual laptop" on a USB bracelet is portable and can be worn on the child's wrist, folded in a pocket or a school bag. WiHood's USB bracelet is made of non-toxic silicon so it is safe and kid-tough. WiHood's bracelet protects children online when the parents are not home or while the child is surfing at home, a friend's, and at school.
WiHood is based in Oslo (Norway) and was incorporated in August 2007. WiHood has been honored to be awarded funding from Innovation Norway (a division of the Norwegian government providing funding only to Norway's most innovative companies). WiHood was founded to bridge the digital-divide while protecting children online using Web 2.0 innovations (Web Services and Cloud Computing Technologies).
