Morristown, NJ (PRWEB) July 08, 2016
Evolution Labs today announced that Buena Regional High School in Buena, New Jersey has launched the company’s Suite360 multi-faceted digital platform, which leverage web, mobile-app, mobile messaging and social media to help students navigate a range of issues, from social media bullying to drug and alcohol use to general health and wellness. Buena students will access the program by downloading an app or by accessing a mobile-optimized website. Students will be required to complete two courses per marking period. Additionally, Buena Regional High School will offer all of the other courses as electives throughout the year.
The program will be built on Evolution Labs’ Suite360 platform, which enables high schools to offer a highly immersive content experience that can be tailored to individual schools, while drawing on nationally recognized best practices. The programs use an array of content features, including short, expert-written topics, engaging videos, interactive self-tests and social media content. Program topics include: recognizing violent relationships, bystander intervention, stress management, substance abuse, healthy eating, academic honesty and college prep.
“Evolution Labs’ innovative platform will allow us to engage students in critical subject matter when it is most relevant to them throughout the academic year,” said Jay Toscano, Vice Principal at Buena Regional High School. “The toolset is unique in that it provides both a robust technology and reporting suite along with the content we know can make a difference in students’ lives.”
The platform delivers new topics throughout the year, via email, SMS and in-app messaging. Each month, students must also complete a required topic, including a pre- and post- assessment to determine the extent to which they’ve absorbed the subject matter.
“Buena Regional High School understands that engaging students in an era of technological distractions requires a platform that parallels (and rivals) the material that students interact with online and on their devices,” said Peter Kraft, Co-Founder at Evolution Labs. “The immersive approach of Suite360’s content and features ensures that students engage in the material more frequently and with higher rates of content absorption.”
