While digital communications platforms and social media have brought their share of challenges to high school students, products such as Suite360 are a testament to the power of technology in engaging students and their families.
Morristown, NJ (PRWEB) September 09, 2016
Evolution Labs today announced that Delaware Valley Regional High School has launched two of the company’s digital programs, which utilize web, mobile app, mobile messaging and social media to help students and parents explore a range of issues, from social media bullying to sexual assault to mental health. Students and parents will access the program by downloading an app or via a mobile-optimized website. Suite360 was piloted during the 2015-2016 school year. Evolution Labs and Delaware Valley are now preparing to showcase the program to all students and parents beginning this fall.
Both the student and parent programs are built on Evolution Labs’ proprietary technology, 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. Suite360 incorporates an array of content vehicles, including short, expert-written topics, engaging videos, interactive “heuristic modules” as well as live and curated social media content. Program topics include: recognizing violent relationships, bystander intervention, stress management, substance abuse, academic honesty, college prep and concussion education.
“While digital communications platforms and social media have brought their share of challenges to high school students, products such as Suite360 are a testament to the power of technology in engaging students and their families,” said Adrienne Olcott, Principal at Delaware Valley. “As an integral component of our student curricula and parent communications, Suite360 promises to redefine the toolset we use to help students reach vital learning outcomes while enabling parents to become even greater allies in their students’ success.”
Suite360 delivers new topics throughout the school year, via email, SMS and in-app messaging. Each month, students must also complete a required topic, including a pre- and post- assessment designed to determine the extent to which they’ve absorbed the interactive content.
“Delaware Valley’s passion for helping students both inside and outside of the classroom through the use of new technology make it a perfect fit for our Suite360 platform,” said Peter Kraft, Co-Founder at Evolution Labs. “Suite360 was developed not only to immerse students and their parents in interactive content in key topic areas, but to provide administrators with real-time data about the issues students and parents face, arming staff to make more effective decisions.”
