Rochester, PA (PRWEB) May 15, 2015
The National Network of Digital Schools (NNDS), the nonprofit organization that offers a continuum of personalized learning solutions to students of all ages and from all walks of life, announced today that it is now renamed Lincoln Learning Solutions. Along with the new name, the company has also unveiled a new brand identity and website at http://lincolnlearningsolutions.org.
“Our new brand not only recognizes the legacy of our industry-pioneering Lincoln Interactive and Little Lincoln curricula, it more fully reflects our mission, vision, and increased breadth of services. The rebranding also coincides with a comprehensive redevelopment of our pre-K-12 curricula. Built by teachers and other education experts from across the country, its release is planned in advance of the 2015-2016 school year,” said Bob Clements, president of Lincoln Learning Solutions.
“We are creating the most differentiated and adaptable blended digital curriculum tools available, combined with best-in-class teacher instruction. The new Lincoln Curriculum is designed to empower students of all ages throughout the country to own their learning, ace standardized assessments and become college and career-ready lifelong learners.”
Lincoln Learning Solutions was founded in 2005 as NNDS to develop and deliver online curriculum to The Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School, (PA Cyber), the first and largest online public, cyber charter school in Pennsylvania. It also helped schools and communities throughout the United States leverage the power of the burgeoning online learning model. Its pre-K through 12th grade curriculum helped redefine the parameters of public education by delivering a highly personalized student experience. In just five years, the curriculum garnered national recognition, and went from being used by a handful of local clients to serving the needs of nearly 250 schools, districts, and educational consortiums across 22 states and two continents.
“Our new brand also represents our extended reach beyond the pre-K-12 market, by partnering with businesses, nonprofit groups, and governmental agencies to establish online learning communities for certifications in trades and continuing professional development,” noted Clements. “Current initiatives in this area include pilot projects in health care and the industrial trades.”
Today, Lincoln Learning Solutions employs more than 300 full- and part-time staff, and also maintains a vast network of course developers, content specialists, and educational consultants spread across the United States and throughout the world.
As a nonprofit organization governed by a board of directors, Lincoln Learning Solutions has always been driven by individual student success across all learning environments, not the bottom line. Through the organization’s grants and donations programs, it has invested millions of dollars in schools and communities where its footprint has been the largest. It continuously invests resources to further both innovation and reform in education, and to support community-based efforts that expand choices and opportunities for all people to learn, think, and grow.
“Our entire team is excited about both the rebranding of our organization and the introduction of our new curriculum. Each one of us has a deep reverence for learning and we are passionate about helping educators reach their goals. Just like them, we truly do believe that if you ignite a mind, you can change the world,” said Clements.
