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.
Morristown, NJ (PRWEB) August 19, 2016
Eisenhower Middle School, part of the Roxbury Public School District in Succasunna, NJ will be launching a new program from Evolution Labs to help students navigate a range of issues, from social media bullying to drug and alcohol use to general health and wellness. The program, called Suite360, is a multi-faceted digital platform which leverages web, mobile-app and mobile messaging. Eisenhower students will access the program by downloading an app or by accessing a mobile-optimized website.
Eisenhower’s program will be built on Evolution Labs’ Suite360 platform, which enables 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 and academic integrity.
“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 Ms. Elizabeth Omegna, Assistant Principal at Eisenhower Middle 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 will complete a required topic, including a pre- and post- assessment to determine the extent to which they’ve absorbed the subject matter.
“Eisenhower 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.”
The school is also implementing Evolution Labs’ P360 program, which delivers tips and guidance to parents.
