At this year’s event, ITWorx Education will showcase its multilingual social learning platform, the Connected Learning Gateway (CLG), which provides public and private K-12 education institutions with the latest teaching and learning tools, mobility tools, and content-integration capabilities to create a unique and modern education experience for all. The platform provides a dynamic learning space enriched with collaboration, personalization, interactivity, real-time feedback and assessment, and mobile learning. CLG enables learners, teachers and schools to embrace a new culture of social learning. It also encourages parental involvement throughout the learning process.

“The face of education is changing with self-paced learning, social networking, and mobility becoming compulsory mechanisms of the process rather than complementary,” commented Houssam Amer, ITWorx VP – North America; adding “CLG is designed to ensure that both teachers and students are empowered with the right tools for a 21st century education.”

ITWorx Education will also demo its newly-released ‘Virtual Lab’ which uses Kinect to simulate the running of a scientific experiment, surpassing handheld devices by putting the entire lab experience at the learner’s fingertips. The Virtual Lab enables teachers and students to run experiments for an unlimited number of trials using different scenarios without worrying about safety issues or the availability and cost of raw materials. ITWorx Virtual Lab saves the time taken by lengthy lab preparations and creates a more effective, personal, fun and greener learning environment.

ITWorx Virtual Lab can be easily applied to a wide variety of scientific experiments and non-scientific ones too. Teachers can use Kinect as a public device to explain to all students in a classroom at once.
