McKinney, TX (PRWEB) May 07, 2014
Knomadix, a McKinney-based mobile learning software platform startup, is teaming up with Samsung Mobile to pilot a transformative mobile learning solution at Richardson ISD located in the Dallas-Fort Worth Telecom Corridor. This pilot will feature the Knomadix mobile learning platform for customized learning aids and interactive classroom content on Samsung Galaxy® Tab 2 10.1 tablets. Knomadix, a member of the Samsung Solutions Exchange™, will deliver an innovative mobile content solution that maximizes the usefulness of tablets in the classroom, resulting in improved student engagement and outcomes.
The pilot, featured in both elementary and secondary classroom settings, empowers teachers to create smarter, digital versions of content previously created using white boards, notepads, worksheets, maps, diagrams, geometry toolbox manipulatives, flashcards, and other physical learning tools. This interactive content will be integrated with assessments and data for personalized and individual instruction.
The pilot fits within the district’s technology plan to bring innovative instructional tools into classrooms. "Our goal in Vision 2020 is increased, individualized student performance and engagement. Both student engagement and performance increase when we combine enhanced technology and RISD’s quality teaching," explains Dr. Kay Waggoner, superintendent. "We are pleased to be a part of this exciting pilot as we lead the state and nation in advancements that benefit students.”
Millions of mobile interactive devices including tablets and smartphones have recently made their way to K-12 classrooms. These devices have the potential to transform and forever change how teachers teach and how students learn. However, schools are still faced with the challenge of delivering meaningful, personalized, interactive content that have a profound impact on everyday classroom learning. Knomadix has created a virtual classroom solution called Knomadix Interactive Cloud that provides a differentiated solution to solve this complex problem.
Knomadix CEO and Founder, Ramesh Balan, sees the growing mobile market in education continuing to change and evolve with teachers needing the ability to customize content just as they have always done in the classroom. "With Knomadix, teachers now have more freedom and power to create personalized, interactive, magical content and learning activities for mobile devices in a virtual, Do-It-Yourself environment. Knomadix helps transform commercial mobile devices into powerful teaching tools. We are pleased to be part of the Samsung Solutions Exchange program, and are very excited to team with Samsung Mobile and Richardson ISD as we introduce this innovative learning solution aimed at improving student achievement levels."
