Westport, CT (PRWEB) March 25, 2015
Andover Education’s dynamic knowledge management platform, Fulcrum, is now available to Edmodo’s millions of users directly from within Edmodo. Registered Edmodo users can install the Andover Fulcrum app and then access Fulcrum’s vast collection of education titles from worksheets and assessments to projects and videos. Fulcrum titles are tagged and rated, so the best rise to the top. Edmodo users can also directly access Fulcrum Common Core content generated from Edmodo’s Common Core quizzes. No additional Fulcrum registration is required for Edmodo users.
With Fulcrum, teachers can easily find, store, improve and share any kind of content, while communicating and collaborating with teachers across the world.
Teachers can quickly find the content they need by searching for any standards and descriptors, including grade and content type (such as printables, videos, quizzes). Then teachers can save and share their content. Teachers can even upload their own content to create lesson plans and share with others. On Fulcrum, all features and titles are free for teachers.
According to Andover’s CEO, Nathan Allen, Fulcrum “allows Edmodo’s teachers to develop and share great content, provide teachers with the content they need to achieve goals, and promote best practices in the classroom. Fulcrum also allows schools and districts to find and promote their instructional leaders, thus leveraging the talents of great teachers.”
Fulcrum is free for teachers and teachers can use it independently or as part of a district program by searching and sharing content through easy search functions and effective tagging systems. Fulcrum allows teachers to follow thought leaders in their fields to receive instant updates and the most used and effective education titles are listed first and instantly available. Teachers are able to quickly switch between a district’s private database and Fulcrum’s national and international databases. The most used or highest rated collections will rise to the top and get educators connected with the best titles for any given topic, subject area, content type, or standard area.
Districts can see what’s being used and what works and then drive that content into the classroom. With Fulcrum, districts can easily identify and disseminate best practices and district level personnel get an inside look into what is and isn’t working. District owned and licensed content can be excluded from content searches outside of the district, at the district’s discretion. There is no need for a school to host Fulcrum as everything is cloud based and always accessible.
About Andover Education
Andover was launched in Westport, CT in 2003 to develop educational content and quickly became known for its metric-based solutions for districts. Andover developed its own technology once it became apparent that the technology to deliver solutions was limited and out-dated. While a technology company, Andover’s foundation is in teaching and learning. Andover operates an accredited school (grades 6-12) and employs a full complement of teaching staff. As a technology company, this enables Andover to develop ed-tech solutions that best address education challenges.
