ClassBook.com today announced its integral role in helping Connecticut’s South Kent School implement a complete a digital learning curriculum environment including electronic textbooks and other e-learning materials brought to students and teachers on Apple’s iPad.

ClassBook.com’s technology platform helps manage the digital textbook content from multiple e-book providers and acts as the e-commerce solution for parents to purchase the content.

ClassBook.com helped South Kent School to streamline the buying process for families and offered the school unprecedented options in e-book adoption by managing relationships with multiple publishers. South Kent School now has a comprehensive e-textbook offering in addition to the reporting mechanisms in place to transition teachers from old textbooks to new e-book programs.

“While the benefits outweigh the challenges, the transition from traditional learning to embracing technology and digital materials can be difficult and time consuming to all of the parties involved, from parents to administrators to students,” said Anthony Pfister, CEO of ClassBook. “We try to help take those challenges away and let schools focus on building the right curriculum and technology offering so everyone can work in an contemporary and innovative learning atmosphere.”

South Kent School has implemented a comprehensive digital curriculum education and technological learning environment beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, with teachers trained on iPads and with e-books the previous school year. Implementation at this degree is something that often is only loosely interpreted or executed in small pilot programs. With ClassBook.com, South Kent School devised a plan to accelerate the matriculation of both the technology and the textbook content and has transformed the way the school is supporting digital learning.

“This is an exciting time at South Kent School and our faculty is fully engaged and excited to be part of a digital platform of excellence,” said Gonzalo Garcia, associate director of admissions at South Kent School. “Our partnership with ClassBook.com was integral to our success in both the planning of our technology rollout in addition to supporting students and parents through embracing new e-learning materials.”
