San Antonio, TX. (PRWEB) June 24, 2013
Today at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Annual Conference and Exposition, SchoolChapters, Inc., an innovative, ed-tech company that delivers a standards-driven platform for PreK-12 through higher education, announced new cost-effective solutions for Common Core assessment, teacher evaluation, and workforce readiness with mobile and social learning capabilities.
These solutions complement SchoolChapters’ suite of administrative tools for accreditation, portfolio management, and teacher preparation.
Since 2008, SchoolChapters has provided users with a simple and intuitive way to create outcomes-based portfolios for the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) accreditation and more recently for the Child Development Associate (CDA) credential. Today, SchoolChapters supports hundreds of programs across the United States including districts, community colleges and universities.
“Our solutions allow districts and institutions to monitor and assess learning outcomes, create individualized success plans and track teacher and program effectiveness,” said Claudia Reuter, founder and CEO, “For schools and districts moving toward a 1:1 learning initiative, SchoolChapters makes it easy to collect, share and showcase learning and assess it against prominent educational standards.”
Delivered in the cloud, SchoolChapters’ modular products and services are available online and via mobile apps allowing students and teachers to capture experiences in the field, abroad or at work and align them to state and national standards, learning outcomes or custom criteria. In addition, the platform integrates with LTI compliant learning management systems like Blackboard and Moodle, ensuring that work is not replicated, but improved.
“We are excited to deliver a comprehensive platform that helps students and teachers clearly demonstrate skills and competencies when using virtual or blended learning for certificates, credentials, advanced degrees and work-based learning, ” said Claudia Reuter. “By implementing these solutions, districts and institutions can leverage their existing systems, track outcomes and ensure that students are meeting state and national standards that prepare them college or career.”
